Jones' New Boot-Upper Closing Machine
Produces a Beautiful Pearly Stitch, pulling the Work solidly together.
We can prove that where these Machines have been running for years at the Highest Speeds in Factories in Leicester, Northampton, Leeds, Bristol, and other Boot and Shoe Centres, the Manufacturers are perfectly astonished to find the cost for new parts has been so very small in comparison with the cost for new parts for the other Machines they are using.
When required for Wax Thread work, with or without solution, the Machine is specially built, and it will do heavier work at a higher speed than any Machine in the Trade.
