    .....a poor, abused and unloved machine yesterday. The sad thing is I cannot even speak its language! It is a Haid & Neu treadle in a cabinet/table. I paid $15 to rescue it.

    The manual is, of course, all in German. I cannot tell how old it is, I am thinking maybe the 50's?

    It has the bobbin case and even the leather belt and wheel. I am hoping we can get her fixed up and usable again.

    She belonged to someone's "ex" M-I-L and was brought over in 1966 when she died. She had been stored none to carefully or gently in a garage (or perhaps an outside shed).

    The cabinet/table is oak and seems to be original to the machine. It, too, needs some TLC.

    Anyone familiar with this brand, Haid & Neu? (I did read it was taken over by Singer in 1958) Any advice on refurbishing it?

    These photos were taken at the time of rescue!

    Thanks,

    Patches

    I'm glad you rescued her! Sorry, though, I never heard of that one.

    Congratulations on your rescue. Looks like an easy clean up and you will have a great machine. I don't know anything about it but looks like one of the earlier Singer models.

    Billy will drop this into the Vintage Sewing Machine shop on this board. He has also written great tutorials to clean the machines.

    Glenn has written a tut on refinishing the cabinets so you can find the info there.

    My husband said it looked like a Singer when he checked it out.

    Any ideas on how figure out the age, etc...?

    Where do I find the tutorials?

    Thanks so much,

    Deb
