    Default Whant is the brand of this machine?

    Hello! I'm new on this forum, I'm from Switzerland. Sorry for my english, it's not my mothertongue...

    I bought this machine a few days ago, I really want to try to restore it. I don't know the brand of this machine, I thought it would be easy to find it out but no... Do you have an idea??

    Try posting on victoriansweatshop.com. If you plan to restore it, they might be a lot of help.

    It is certainly a transverse shuttle machine. similar to Saxopny. That hand crank has me puzzled.

    Welcome to Quilting Board. There is also a Frister & Rossman manual web pages at http://needlebar.org/main/manuals/fandr/index.html and http://needlebar.org/main/manuals/fandr/index2.html
    I did an image search at this link and found a couple more similar machines https://www.naehmaschinenverzeichnis...biesolt-locke/ and https://www.naehmaschinenverzeichnis...inen/gritzner/
    There are some threads here on Quilting Board about restoring and cleaning machines.

    That is an unusual badge which I've never seen. Some of the badges will have something to help identify. However, some of the distributors put their own badge on.

    What a beautiful machine, congratulations!

    You never know, it may be that a bit of cleaning might reveal some decals. I would start with a very very gentle cleaning with sewing machine oil to see if any decals a revealed.
