I've been looking for one of these for absolutely ages, they are rare in the UK,
This one is a bit worse for wear. Amazingly it still works.
It's a really nifty machine for pinking edges on material. The blade isn't actually sharp but it cuts really well by pressure between the blade and the bottom roller.
I had to take it apart to clean it. This is where I came unstuck, I couldn't get the blade out, the tension knob was well and truly stuck, I knew that it unscrewed the opposite way to normal but I still couldn't undo it. The adjustment screw on the width guide was also stuck. My partner came to the rescue and dismantled it. The bearing on the hand crank was seized but he managed to free this up as well.
Unfortunately, it didn't come with the original table clamp but there was one with the toy Singer sewing machine I had as child. Don't know what became of this machine but I found the clamp in Dad's garage when I was clearing it out.
It cleaned up quite nicely. The Featherweight Shop came to the rescue for a copy of the Manual, you can download one here Pinking manual. A big thank you to them. They sell new blades as well, including a straight one,
Tried a few different fabrics, it cut them all with ease, even the slippy waterproof fabric. It even cuts paper and card because the blade isn't actually sharp the paper will not blunt it. You can adjust the bottom roller to put more pressure on the blade if its not cutting properly.
It will sit on my sewing table ready for action!
