The iron duke

Reece 101

We’ve been dreaming about getting this keyhole buttonhole machine, now we finally got it!
Luckily one of the london based manufacturers was looking for a new home for this monster.

This machine is Reece 101, It’s also called “The Iron Duke”

It is a real vintage but still very popular among makers in the UK . I’ve never seen this one in Japan, Durkopp or Juki are more popular there.

The machine has some “This model only”special features which makes this model so popular.

– Stationery bed plate. Only the head travels around the buttonhole so the garment doesn’t move during stitching

– Handstitch imitation hole. With a top gimp attachment it gives the appearance of a hand-sewn buttonhole.

Also our machine has a “buttonhole counter” so you can see how many holes were made so far. It says 252 million!! Oh we love our “The iron dude” 🙂
