Fischbein Portable F Handstitcher

1. Fischbein Portable F

The Fischbein Model F Portable stitcher has the more simple, basic design with the lesser parts from all portable single hand  stitchers.  This makes the machine more vulnerable for failures but in addition, because the whole machine opens from the side, easy to repair. The Fischbien Portable F can handle light and medium light bags preferred made from paper of jute. The oiling system is basic and drops the oil right into the machine. Because the machine uses less parts then an Newlong Industrial NP-7A it also makes it more light weight, but less durable.
