The Finger Guard
The use of...the Singer Finger Guard...makes it impossible for operators to have their fingers pierced by the needle; since it is not necessary for them closely to watch their fingers, more attention can be given to the work. The guard is quickly attached to the presser bar of the machine and it can be readily adjusted to the desired height. When not in use the finger guard is turned back and can again be placed in position by simply swinging it forward.
