Adler 30-70 Leather Patcher

For those who are interested; the video below also shows you how to thread the machine properly.

I love these cobbler machines. This Adler 30-70 is the last model made by Dürkopp Adler in Germany. Other manufacturers make patchers based on the older Singer 29 cobbler machine.

Below is a Singer 29K I restored with a great local artist -
Amanda Lynn. This cobbler machine now belongs to the Goorin Bros. Hat Company in San Francisco.

These machines have been made for over a hundred years with very little change. Like someone once said "...if it's not broken, don't fix it." (see my other blog post on the Adler 30-1)

This video shows how to thread an Adler 30-70 - this will work for cobbler machines that are based on the Singer 29 and similar sewing machines.
