    I have the same cabinet - however the legs say "eldredge" as mine is a newer model when National trotted out the old name again. The real fun ones are the original Eldredge Two Spool made before the company become National.

    Your machine looks to be in very good condition. The cabinet is exactly like mine, but I think mine is in a little better shape. I think that's probably normal, considering that this machine was housed by my husband's aunt for the past 50 or 60 years!

    Great find. Congrats.

    That is an awesome machine! You have your work cut out for you to restore her and her cabinet, but wow it will be fantastic when done!

    Oh so beau ---tiful. My hubby thinks all machines should have been made with the bobbin being the size of the spool of thread. I always wondered why these machines didn't catch on. Keep saying I don't want any more machines except a 201 because of big harp size but think if I ever had chance for a 2 spool in very good condition I may change my mind.

    Glad you are experienced with refinishing so this will become a true gem. Please show refinished job. Good luck !

    I don't follow what you are saying here, " The real fun ones are the original Eldredge Two Spool made before the company became National".

    Do you mean the cabinet and treadle irons? Or do you mean the machines? If you mean the machines, the Eldredge and the National are the same machine. I own a National, that once had a motor, and an Eldredge, that never had a motor to it. They both behave the same since their parts are all the same! Awesome machines!

    Come to Kansas. There's plenty of the middle of nowhere.
