    I'm looking for pics and measurements of a specific treadle cabinet.

    My first 9W-7 came in a 5 drawer treadle cabinet with the pull out center drawer with the cut outs for the accessories. The four side drawers have filigree on the front and the side bars are curved and decorated.


    I've got the cabinet apart making repairs. This pic shows the parts I've fabricated to replace those that were missing:


    This pic show the broken off bottoms of the outer edges of the facing:


    What I need are clear photos of a good example of this style of treadle cabinet and measurements from the top edge to the bottoms of the outer curved parts.
    That would help a lot in my fabrication of the replacement parts.

    I've looked at all the Singer cabinets ISMACS has, and none of them match this cabinet.

    Thanks,

    Joe

    Joe, it's a Wheeler & Wilson cabinet.... I have one like this, but it's at my wood guy's getting purdy. (Before I got brave enough to tackle them myself, and I'm thinking he doesn't want to give it back, cuz he's had it over a year!! )

    I would hope that he hasn't messed something up on your cabinet.
    Thanks for the info. One more idea to look at.

    I'm sure he hasn't...he's a friend, and he is a professional refinisher...I see him often, and he lets me know that he hasn't worked on it lately because of paying jobs!

    I think it must be a hybrid cabinet then. It has Singer iron under it and the top where the machine sits is the same size as those on my my Singer 66 cabinets. Hinge spacing as well.

    After you told us it was a W&W cabinet we went back to ISMACS and still found nothing. So I'm still looking for pictures of this thing to use to finish my fixing.

    Thanks. Very similar, but not quite this cabinet. I saved them anyway. Those are neat.

    So just how does this "Wayback Machine" work? What do you have to know to use it?

    Joe, the Wheeler & Wilson company was bought by Singer. That is likely why your 9W-7 is in that cabinet. The W in the model number is your clue.

    Caroline,

    That part I know. But this cabinet is neither all Singer nor all W&W. It has features of both. Could be a transition model maybe? I don't know. I'm just trying to find a couple of good pics of the one I have so I can finish my repairs to the face plate.

    Just type in your search criteria.
