A collection of information relating to the Singer Patcher 29K and in particular the model 29K71

A number of these are available on Gumtree in Australia at the moment

If you shop around, you may be able to pick one up for under $1000AU I was able to pick one up for $750AU in January 2021
The models 71, 72 & 73 are the most recent available and were made up to the 1960's
I can recommend them as worthwhile if you want to work with leather so for the thickest, I have works with is 7mm thick and it works well.

The design was so successful that quite a few manufactures still make copies of them today. See links below.

Copies of the 29K71

According to TgWags69 2 years ago I work in the orthopedic bracing field and have used these "patchers" for years. the Singers do a good job, but if you ever get the chance to pick up and Adler jump on it. The Singer patchers were copied from the Adlers after the start of the war (ww1). Patent recognition went out the window and German technology was fair game for the taking.

But according to the following website Singer was making there machines well before WW I

If the balance wheel is fitted at the side of the machine, it is important that the bobbin should be placed on the bobbin winder spindle with the slot in the side of the bobbin on the outside, so as to ensure that the bobbin will be wound correctly. In this case, the wheel must always be rotated from it top to the right (i.e. clockwise), as when sewing.

Having removed the bobbin from the winder, take it between the thumb and forefinger of the right hand, the slot in the edge of the bobbin being at the bottom, and allow two or three inches of thread to hang free from the bobbin. Hold the shuttle between the thumb and forefinger of the left hand, with the wide opening uppermost, and letting the end of the thread pass through the shuttle (see Fig 8.), drop the bobbin into it.
Turn the shuttle over in the fingers, at the same time holding the bobbin in it, and draw the thread into the slot in the edge of the shuttle (see Fig. 9) and under the end of the tension spring. Then pass the end of the thread up through the small hole which is in the upper edge of the shuttle (see Fig. 10).
