    Empire Treadle Machine

    I have an Empire treadle machine that was in my family. I have done a little research, but didn't find more than basics. It has no model # or info that I can find. I need a new belt for it and would like some sort of user guide. With a new belt and thorough cleaning I think I could use this machine, tons of attachments. I would appreciate any info.
    Thanks, Marielle

    According to Ismac's Needle list, http://www.ismacs.net/needle_and_sha...eedle-list.pdf , it could be made by Davis or New Home. A picture is needed for positive ID.

    You won't need a model number to get a belt. All treadle belts are about 72" long, and come with the staple in one end. You just measure it on your machine and cut it off to fit.

    I order mine from Sew-Classics. Jenny is very fast and has just about any part you need.
