    Eldredge two-spool

    Well, the fat man strikes again! I got the Eldredge in the back of my van. It hasn't got an owners' manual, but looks like it has everything else, even the original door key! Pictures to follow. Cheers! Chaz

    Congrats. I am drooling here. I so want one. BUT, I do have an original manual just in case a Two Spool comes my way. I can scan a PDF copy of it if you can't find one on line. I keep the manual in a plastic baggy because it reeks of stale machine oil, but that is what preserved it. Does your machine have the spool can? If not they are nigh on impossible to find.

    This thing is in a single door parlor case, and has a real pretty butterfly shaped treadle. The spool can is right here, and a copy of the manual would be very much appreciated. Would I owe you anything?

    You will enjoy using the two spool. I use it for piecing. the spool in the can holds a lot of thread so no runing out of bobbin thread.

    OK Chaz. Ever hear of Pavlov's dogs? Well that is a perfect description for me after seeing your pics. I am more that drooling now. I love the treadle peddle. I love the parlor cabinet. Uh Oh, I love everything about it.

    Now that is what I call a sewing machine. Enjoy it. I've been looking for one a long time and they are elusive.
