    I recently got a package deal that had this machine, along with a 1922 Singer 71-30 Button holer machine. I've included the before shots and after shots - I went through this machine from top-to-bottom, cleaning, polishing, oiling, and replacing missing hardware. I just traded this machine to a vintage industrial collector/businessman who uses bar tackers on a daily basis, and plans to put this one back into service. It came with the motor, table, pedals, light, and spool stand. <3 I'll miss it, but I'm glad I got the chance to rescue it from potentially ending up in recycling. It's a gorgeous, intricate example of brilliant engineering.
