    Maybe it's one of those incredibly RARE fiddlebase machines with the rectangular base??

    I have a Free VS machine that says "Long Bobbin Rotary" on the Arm - and I suppose since the bobbin does actually go around inside the shuttle, it's accurate.

    The machine -





    And the attachment box that came with it. Most of the boxes like this just have "attachments" or "rotary" on them.

    I see, I was imaging a long bobbin spinning around where a standard round vertical bobbin would be....lol

    no, just a regular VS machine that someone decided to get creative with Marketing. I imagine the "rage" was getting away from VS into the "new" rotary machines (though they'd been out for years and years already).

    You know how it goes, someone heard about the new Rotary machine so and so had - but being 1920's-30's, they really had no idea what it looked like - just a word to go by.

    This one is also creative in the difference between one bobbin type and the other. I have no idea where to start. It has both kinds of slide plate.

    That would be an interesting one to see in person. The bobbin winder is for a round bobbin, wonder what's under the long slide plate?
