Refurbished Industrial Sewing Machine

These are the before and after pictures of a fifty year old industrial sewing machine that I purchased off of eBay. The machine is a "darner" that, as I understand, was used for mending and splicing the web for textile manufacturing.

I built a new table reusing the metal hardware and legs. I refinished the sewing machine body as well as cleaning and aligning the mechanical transmission of the sewing machine. Lastly, I added a new servo motor to control the speed.

    I posted this to share with a few folks as inspiration. I am working on a second machine that will become a full blown instuctable. Thanks for the kind comments. Carl
