Singer 29K51 Patcher, Leather Working Sewing Machine
- Source: eBay
Singer 29k51 patcher, cobler's, or leatherworker's sewing machine dating to 1930. The machine has been oiled and sews a good stitch. The 29K51 is almost identical to the older 29-4 except the hand wheel can be mounted facing the operator (additional shaft) for easier hand cranking. The material to be sewn is fed by the walking foot which has serrations on it's bottom and the feed direction is changed by moving winged handle above the needle as desired. The auction includes an owners manual on CD, pack of size 20 leather needles, 3 bobbins, notched wire for threading, and tapered rod for bobbin winding. The machine does not have its original bobbin winder. I used a small tapered 2" rod which fits tightly to the bobbin center and chuck other end of rod into cordless drill and wind. Cosmetic condition is fair as seen in pictures. Length of arm is a little over 12". Wearable parts are still available for this machine from industrial sewing machine supply houses. Any questions please ask. Weight of machine is close to 60lbs. Local pickup in Millville, NJ 08332 is welcome .
