The things you find on TradeMe.



I've a mind to make this one a Mystery Object. It'll be way too easy for some of you smarty-pantses knowledgeable individuals, but others may be puzzled. Comments screened.

I am going to say, sewing machine cogs for different types of stitching.

That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

1st: I cheat. I've done some sewing in my time, own 2 older Singers.

2nd: You provided a very nice clue.

Actually knowing stuff about stuff isn't cheating. And yes, this is an older Singer.

Oh, drat, and I so wanted to be cheating! Also, not kicking off a one-upmanship thing, but I suspect my two are older than yours. One of them for sure, as it is a functional treadle-powered machine. *G* Need some exercise? Do some sewing! The other is a direct-drive which I think was made in the 1930's decade. Not positive though. Purchased that one for sewing leather.

My one has a sticker on it celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Singer, which makes it about a 1964 model. Here's an owners manual I found earlier.
