Adler 30-1

A cobbler's machine. Anyone remember what a cobbler is? Have you ever had your shoes repaired? Don't people just buy new shoes when their old ones die?

This beautiful machine was built in the mid thirties in Germany. Adler is the German word for eagle; and this machine is as beautiful as the bird of prey.

Having the long cylinder arm allows the user access into the deepest part of a riding boot. The foot also rotates to allow repairs where most sewing machine dare not go - actually places they cannot go.

Also check out my post on the Adler 30-70 for sale on eBay, I might add:
