I have a treadle sewing machine that was left in the house my mother purchased in 1962. When she passed away I took the machine home because no one wanted to buy it. On the slide plate where the bobbin goes it says "Domestic " S.M. Company, New York and gives few patent dates, with the latest being May 16, 1863. It has a number underneath that that might be the s/n, 1162699. With all the interest on the board regarding these old machines, I wonder if I should try to get it working. I do not believe all the parts are there. What are all you all's thoughts on this (I'm not really Southern, just don't know how to phrase it).
