Just watched on catch up, really good show. They were wrong about the 29k being an original (old) one though ;) 


I agree. I have a really old one down in the cellar. No clutch on the wheel. And they were not using old type thread. Using nylon. And she was winding with one hand and guiding her work with the other. Distinct lack of foot hand coordination.  My most favorite bit after Steph was the Goodyear welt stitcher.

Glad you're OK Eric....  I've been sorting out my Victor this evening. She was missing stitches. Think I have her sorted now, spreader point was a touch off.................Setting up an old Victor is like making love to a beautiful woman. You've got to caress her parts. Breathe softly and gently. And give every inch of her your loving attention. And make sure you've got a nice full oil can.
