    I found a treadle machine for 150 dollars but it lacks a spindle bobbin and a needle plate and one heck of a good cleaning. Doctor wants me to exercise my legs as I am in a wheelchair and he doesn't want to throw in the towel yet on me. It is a old Singer Machine that belonged to her grandma and they are downsizing.

    This is a great exercise plan. You can be creative and improve your health as well. Good choice. Thank you for sharing.

    That price seems a bit steep to me. I bet if you keep looking you can find one that has all it's parts for less.
