The Singer 12 or 'New Family' machine had been around for ten years in 1875, as had the 'Mack', the prototype 'high-arm' vibrating shuttle machine which developed into the 'Domestic' and many others. Wheeler & Wilson needed a new machine to regain their market position, a machine which was a quantum leap beyond their current machine whilst still remaining faithful to the rotary hook principle. The engineer behind this replacement was James Alford House and the resultant machine was called the 'Number 8'.
