I have been asked to identify this machine. I don't have a clue, of course, but they don't know I have helpers. I've asked for better pictures, but so far no go.image.jpegThe badge that's on it is Norwegian, and definitely not the maker. Anyone?

That looks like it falls under Steve's area of expertise.

"they don't know I have helpers" - gave me my chuckle for the day. Don't know a thing about the machine except back in the day I probably saw a cobbler use one. Lived in a little tiny town that had "while you wait service". His big spinning roll with sanders, polishers etc. always fascinated me as a youngster.

Steve has one of those or something similar. I believe they were made by Bradbury or Claes and sometimes labeled Elastique on the irons.

Bradbury was my guess. I've been hoping for a rise from Steve on this, yes

Good Morning.

Jon was spot on. It is an antique Patcher.

It looks like a Durkopp logo in the spreader. (German)

I would guess 1870's to 1890's

Wish there was a nicer picture so we could see it better. Looks really interesting.

It looks better when it is right side up.
Right click on the picture, then click on "View image". Works every time.

I right clicked on mine and didn't get what you get but I clicked on "open image on new tab" and it showed upright, yeah, so much easier to look at, and it is a cool machine. Thank you mav.

Ive been reading up on boot/shoe making and at some point will make my own boots, wife some mocaccins. Unless I can find a treadle sole/leather sticher. Prob will end up starting out with hand tools for the leather part, and my Singer 347 for the fabric parts.

Also been looking at doing leather or layering leather with ductape for the outer sole, and leather and cork for the insole.

Any shoe makers in here?
