Hand Cranks

I am unlikely to get many of these. The only source is now from breaking machines, and I try not to do too much of that. Some are really quite poor (note that what you see is the item you will get) and many need cleaning. If you want an immaculate machine it's easier to buy a good one than restore an indifferent specimen..
I don't list Reproduction cranks as Genuine Singer - note below.. The Chinese ones are very poor
Please note that all of these are heavy, and postage to the US will be up to the same amount again..
I also have one or two broken Singer and Jones ones, and a German TS one for parts, please ask or look at the bottom of the page...
All Singer cranks come with a fixing screw. Others only if shown.

Page updated 16th January 2015, with some muttering.. I've not finished, but I have had enough for tonight - NOTE - new items are now at the TOP of the page..

HC117 (left) and HC116 (right). These are "Add-on Plates" - cast lumps designed to make it possible to add a crank to a machine without the requisite lump in the casting - that is machines that were never designed to be anything but treadles. The casting requires drilling and tapping, and then the add-on plate acts as a locating device.. Not for the faint-hearted, and please don't do this unless you must; on your own head, and all that; £7.50 each
