Another English made machine, but this time with a pleasing and snappy touch, less of a swing and almost a click like a button, perhaps the tension on the escapement is a little tight but I like the feel. It does after a while become tiresome compared to my US made one but it is better than the other English one I had. It has small carriage knobs and a return like the 50s US machine rather than the later English ones.
Left in the Outer Banks, North Carolina.
