Default Trying to ID an old Patcher

anyone able to read this name or recognize this machine?

Might say "Politype"

Clearly a Singer 29 relative... ... or an Adler

Yep! I just found that! Thank you. I am not sure I want to buy this one but it is a very old unit.... I am not sure I want to be responsible for it with potential damage in shipping and such.....

nope. I am pretty comfortable having just one "representative" machine. (I have a Singer 29-4 from 1904)
It is only on certain brands that I am trying to "complete the set" as it were.... but this is cool...

yeah, after my first damaged arrival, i started getting more cautious about what i have shipped. If the person has a clue then I might take the chance, but most folks have no idea how to do it safely.

That is why I did one trip from SF to Los Angeles for a Howe B treadle and a Wheeler Wilson #4 Treadle, one trip to Walla Walla Washington for the Grover & Baker, and One trip up to "gold country" (Sierra Foothills) for the Phoenix F treadle. No way I was having those shipped.
