005. Hand (1)

#1068, courtesy of Siliconchip. The number on the rim of the machine is 1068, the number on the slide plate is 1081 (?), normally the numbers would match (unless replaced). With the exception of a different type of bobbin winder, the machine very closely resembles a Jones. The fitting of the bobbin in the shuttle is different to the instructions in the Jones Hand manual on the Main Site, Jones' design of shuttle carrier in the Hand changed over time; the later Jones has a different shaped tension spring.
The face plate is the same as on early Jones machines. There is no logo in the middle of the bed but just the stamped trade Mark of S R & H on the cloth plate.
There is no horizontal rear spool pin for the machine that the other example in this album has. The rear horizontal pin was established at least c1888.
