    I do not know where the camera is, otherwise I would post this on the picture forum. It is 1926-1928, it has a class 66 bobbin(the exact of my other machine) No manual, but it works pretty good, the table has some damange on top, and on one side has some warping, or cracking, dunno which. It is a great machine! I got it for 125$ and I am happy with it. No attachments. Any ideas how I'd find out the model number, and how to lubricate the base?
    Thanks
    Emily

    Congratulations! I have my grandmother's from around 1919. We have a somewhat local guy who works on them.

    Try google. I know there are sites out there for treadle owners. I've not visited them, but have read about them. LOL

    What brand it is? Singer serial numbers can be tracked at their website. Others may need to be researched further.

    If you can find a patent date, that would help, but patent dates may apply to just one part. It is helpful to know that an object is no older than the latest patent date on it. Can you post a picture of one like it, anda better description? Sounds like it can be restored into a gorgeous piece.

    Ooh I am so jealous! I don't have any extra room for one, but I would LOVE to get my hands on an old treadle machine. I love old things, and think treadles are fabulous.
