I can't help with your problem, but that sure is a pretty machine.

yea looks a lot like my F and R. it is a transverse shuttle machine. To the left of the needle is a slide which should be hiding a boat shuttle and a bobbin.frister-rossmann-slides-b.jpg

use lots of oil and be gentle. I believe the hand wheel must be turned to a certain place to get it to fully open

It's beautiful and looks to be in great condition. What a find! I'd love to have a hand crank machine.
