A random selection of post about travel, and tinkering with mechanical machines. Mostly cars from 1937 to 1999, manufactured in English speaking parts of the world, but also kayaks and sewing machines. So here you can see how we travel, drive, paddle, break fix and find on a regular basis.
This Winselmann is a very close copy of the Singer 28. Of course the decals are different and the bobbin winder looks much like the high version on the later 128
The decorations are somewhat faded, but they must have been quite elaborate.
The 28k theme is carried on, right down to the "vibrating shuttle". Sadly the back of this machine is broken. There is a big crack in the bed, so the arm moves a little. Nevertheless the machine still works!
The well known bobbin winder.
This badge might look like a Singer badge from a distance, but looking closer there is no mistaking this machine to be anything but a Winselmann from Germany.
There is a nice cover with this machine. Doe the name "Hera" mean this is not the original cover or is it a "Hera by Winselmann"?
