In this post, I'll go over how Singer's hand crank pinking machine works and how to troubleshoot some of the most common problems with it. I love mechanical sewing attachments and accessories. I've mentioned before that I'm a sucker for vintage sewing machines with cams, which are discs that you can use to create various stitch patterns.
