VINTAGE SINGER 47WSV14 DARNING SEWING MACHINE

Today it's my 1911-1919 Singer 47WSV14.
It was all black at one time but was painted gray.
the "SV" part of the code means it was a Special Version but I have no idea what was special about it or what it originally made for.
It's a Darning machine, which was used to repair cloth or clothes.  It has no feet on it so you just slide the material under the needle.   It would be great for repairing torn up blue jeans.
The original owner custom made this outfit of the motor and plug... this machine also has a foot control.
I'm trying to find the right way to thread this machine as I'm close but it's not quite there.... 
Again, I love these old sewing machines... especially these industrial ones.   I have a few projects coming up with some of the other machines I've bought in the past so check back often for updates on those.   It's Vintage Gear for Guys!
