I have been looking for a Singer treadle and I found this on the army base where my husband is stationed at the thrift store. I paid 100.00 for it which I hope wasnt to much but I fell in love with it. I looked up the serial number and it was made in 1916 in Elizabeth, New Jersey.
The sign on the machine said it can be fixed. All the parts work and came with the original drawers I believe it needs a belt. I'd like to restore the wood and iron . but I have no idea where to start or the do's and don'ts... so please ladies and gents don't hold back on the advice and website/resources. I can see this becoming an obsession so if I can restore it to working order then i'd like to buy more ;)
