Ive been Hunting for this machine for a few months - Super Happy!, as one of these bad boys just arrived by my desk. and its a real beauty ! Can't wait to get it up and running. Its a 1914 Singer 47W70 Darning Machine !
This is one of holy grail machines for Darning / Repair, and you can see why. Check out a video our friends at Self Edge, New York with their Machine.

Having just got my machine, i also hunted down the Instructions. To Stop Nasty Companies from charging for photocopied and badly scanned instructions, ive uploaded my set. Heres a link of a few Pdfs for the instructions ive collected. This way hopefully no one will not need to spend any additional money. Just Cut and Paste the link, Enjoy:
