    Welt stitcher - Machine

    are you talking about a machine to stitch the welts on to the shoe or an outsole stitcher as they are 2 differing machines i have used both and the 2 i used must have been a good few years old the outsole stitcher was built in 1939 and the welt machine not much later both beutiful machines far better than there modern day counterparts ,personally i would rather stitch the welt on by hand
