Post Must SEE 1908 and mint 1950 sewing machine- Collector!!! and antique movie projector!

Please make an offer for any of the items listed,
Email me @ ctribuzzo@yahoo.com thank you!


For Sale a 1908 White Rotary Antique Sewing Machine!



The Serial Number is FR2496360

The Machine is in ood condition for its age and comes with a case.


The unit does power on and the motor works but the large wheel in the back does not turn with the belt, the unit will be sold as is.


Due to the delicate nature of the machine the auction will be pick up only unless the buyer contacts me about shipment (the unit is also quite heavy)

The History "IF YOU FIND A GOOD ONE DONT PASS IT UP.
"

White was, next to Singer, perhaps the largest and best known of the US sewing machine companies. Unlike Singer, they did not offer many different models, or change models very often. Their engineering was extremely good, and their products stood the test of time. The introduced their VS machine in the late 1870's and manufactured it with minor improvements into the early 1900's. They introduced a new model, the Family rotary, or FR, which was a very well designed and strong Machine, in the late 1890's and manufactured this design, with some variations, up until WW II.


Unfortunately, there is nowhere near as much information on the White Company as on Singer. The company was founded by Thomas White, who had some prior experience inmanufacture. He located in Cleveland, Ohio (down a main street from where I lived as a child, actually). The company was formed in 1876. Whitewas a large and prosperous company, giving Singer a run for their money. White took over the Domestic and King sewing machine companies and eventually became White Consolidated Industries. They ceased manufacturing in the United States sometime after WWII, probably the late 60's or early 70's. After that their machines were made in Japan.


The White FR or Family Rotary is the most common White. They are a truly outstanding Machine If you find a good one, don't pass it up. One caution on this model... I always tell people that "White is Singer spelled backwards...". Everything about the White is the reverse of the Singer... the handwheel rotates away from you instead of toward you, and the thread rolls off of the bobbin in the favored, or easy, direction, not cutting back over a lip as on Singer round bobbins. One of the more common "help" calls on Treadle On is from new White owners who can't get their machine to stitch because they are trying to make it turn the same direction as a Singer.
