Before the Featherweight - Sewhandy Volume 1 History (Paperback)Darrel P. Kaiser (author)

The reason for this book was the recurring gossip and speculation that the Standard "Sewhandy" machine was the basis of the SINGER 221 Featherweight. After many months of research, I realized that documenting the Sewhandy would take more than 500 pages; I have published "before the Featherweight - Sewhandy" in two volumes. This book, Volume 1, details before the design (early 1920's) thru production end (late 1938) of the Sewhandy, patents, model identification, Sewhandy ads and brochures, & an OSANN SINGER Sewhandy versus SINGER Featherweight sew-off.The companion book,Volume 2, covers maintenance & repair of all Sewhandy models, mechanical and electrical operation, advice on buying, restoring, shipping, parts, model identification, & a specification comparison of an OSANN SINGER Sewhandy with a SINGER 221 Featherweight.
