    converting 90-15 clone to treadle?

    Would this be a no brainer or don't even try it for a novice?

    If there are threads talking about this I'd love links, thank you!

    If you mean an HA-1 / 15 clone then it's a piece of cake.

    All you need a is a treadle base, the machine, and a belt.

    Pull off the motor and light, don't loose the motor screw, they are not a normal thread.
    Bolt the machine into the cabinet,
    Adjust the length of the belt, hook it together and start sewing.

    Just that simple.

    Look left to my avatar pic. I've had that machine in a treadle base while it had no motor and it treadled beautifully.

    Thank you Joe...It mentally LOOKED like it would be a simple task, but sometimes I bite of more than I can chew.
    Wish I hadn't been so stingy on a bid the other day

    Thank you again!
