    Question Converting question

    Hi,
    I was wondering if I found a treadle table, could I convert any of my machines to a treadle?
    I have a singer 101, a singer 327k and a domestic 153.
    I'd really like to convert the 101 to a treadle so I don't have to get it rewired any time soon, but I wasn't sure if I could since it had the potted motor.
    And if I can with any of them, how hard is it to do?
    Would there be any draw backs to doing so?
    I've never used a treadle with a machine on it, but my mom had a table that she had in the kitchen and when I was young I would sit and just a go to town on it.
    It was alot of fun! I think thats what got me started on wanting a treadle lol.
    Thanks for any info!

    I would suggest a better plan of action would be to buy a treadle machine all ready set up in the cabinet.

    None of the machines you have are ideal for treadle use. Considering the amount of work and cost of the conversion parts an existing treadle would be less expensive too.
