    lots2do and lfw, please post pictures of your tables!
    I have and treadle stand I will try to get a picture of. I bought it 20+ years ago, stand only, no top, added a plywood top and painted it.

    have another treadle with machine and cabinet in celler, must try to get picture of that one also.

    If you were here in Alabama, I could put you in touch with 2 of them. No machines with them, just the cabinet and treadle part. Not sure how much they were, but I thought and thought about it, but decided to not buy either since I would have to store it here at my daughters and at the moment, dog is chewing everything he can get his teeth on in the garage and I don't want to take the chance that dog would chew cabinet.

    I was cruising CL earlier last year and a treadle turned up with a BBQ grille mounted to it for $25. Come to find out it was a New Home treadle from the 1870's so needles to say I bought it in hopes to find a machine and cabinet for it eventually.

    I picked up a cabinet and a 1870's New Home machine in October for $10 on CL and they were in fair condition. So now I have my mate to the stand. I have been grilling on this thing since I got it and I am going to smoke a shoulder on it Thursday for dinner!

    Maybe after it warms up I can sandblast it and repaint it and get ready to put the machine and cabinet on her. But I still need to make a pitman arm for it the old one rotted away (wood).

    Oh My Billy
    So glad you found a proper machine to go on it.

    Same here I was going just to make a table for the studio out of it until I found one. But I will say this, it sure did make some good burgers and chops this past year!!!
