This is one of two handcranks that now live in my house. My lovely MIL had a great time trying this one out - it's the same age as my FIL!

The tick tick of the mechanism is a lovely soothing sound - far more relaxing than the whirr of my Husqvarna.

The second handcrank is larger and 10 years older - made in 1923. It sews, but is in need of a bit of TLC, unlike this beauty that is working as it were made yesterday.
