.....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!
