Puritan 3 Row, Chain Stitch, Needle and Awl, 'Vamping' Machine

Courtesy of Steve Brambley, pre-1959 from the Puritan Manufacturing Co. of Boston, Massachusetts, USA. Originally designed for assembling shoe uppers, they are also used by luggage and bag makers for very heavy stitching work. The machines have a great penetrating capability, as the awl makes the hole separately before the needle draws the thread through to form the stitch.
