Default Interesting machine? Or old hat?

I know I'm a real newbie at vintage machines, but I've never seen one like this!

First time I've ever seen this one, as well. Looks very interesting...little pricey, but what do I know?

I believe it is a cobbler's bench machine for making shoes.

It's a great price for a working cobbler's machine but it looks like it is can be set up for some other kinds of tasks so it may be worth more...

That is an awesome machine. If I had the room for it I would begin negotiating with the seller today! hehe

It looks like machines I have seen in leather shops (or shoe repair shops) for stitching leather.

It is a cobblers machine But it will still be a great machine for quilting. The throat is so nice. And the price tag is cheap for that one.

Way way way cheaper than a Gammill, that's for sure.
