These are 'two spool' or 'two reel' machines, i.e. they use a reel of thread under the machine as well as one on top.

The Two Spool was the work of John Oakden Potter, Engineer and Joseph Cooper, Sewing Machine Specialist. Cooper was at 93a Stamford Street.

See the other, non-twin bobbin, Vibra Rotary machine in this album.
