Look what I got! A beautiful W.O. Hickok Blank Book Sewing Bench! I would say that I bought it, but the person charged me such a small amount it’s partly a gift. I never saw one before I took it out of the package and assembled it on my counter.
Now I just need some big honking books to sew on it. It seems to be nearly original – does anybody know where to get some additional clamps?
The same person let me pick up some other items at the same time, and I will probably need to sell bits and pieces to help defray the damages my checkbook incurred.
Shout out to Jeff Peachey who corrected me when I wrote that it was an “edition sewing frame”. No wonder it was hard to find good pictures online.
