    I have some sewing machine fan attachment's in the fan museum, one attached to a jewelers treadle the others I hope to set up on the correct sewing machine. I am looking for information on the these fans and how they actually looked when attached to a sewing machine. I believe both Singer and Robbins Myers made them. Thanks

      Rare. Very rare. Also, it's Robbins & Myers.. but yes, I believe so. Check the pre-1950 forum on for more info, one of the guys there most likely knows more than I do.

      Thanks, I fixed the spelling. I posted on the AFCA website earlier and am running down one lead there.

      No problem. It is a terrific source. I'm a member and I use it regularly. There are a lot of extremely knowledgeable 'fan guys' on those forums!

      I am the AFCA museum host I am expanding the museum and will be adding two sewing machine fans, one from patent drawings.
