Default Vintage leather sewing machine Johann Jax

I know that this machine is made by Johann Jax from Linz-Austria. Does anybody know the year of production or the type of this machine? Do you know any experts for this kind of brand?

Thank you for your answers
Damian

Don't know anything about them, but that is a very cool sewing machine! I went to a leatherwork pro a couple months ago, and she had something similar.

It looks like a cobbler machine to me. If it is than you should be able to turn the foot in the direction you want to sew instead of moving your work. I used to work on one of them at a shoe shop.
