    I think he is making a case to carry his gun shells and on a Singer treadle?

    Is that a roller foot on the machine? I think its awesomely cool that he is using a treadle.

    He's making cartridge carriers on a Singer 201-2. Cool.
    It's an electric potted motor machine in a cabinet, not a treadle.

    I like that clamp on light too.

    Yup - it's a 201-2 electric potted motor. He's using a hinged narrow foot (nothing special) - the screw holding it on makes it look like a roller. The shell holder is heavy elastic and he's got a layer of leather for backing and the 201 doesn't even notice.

    The clamp on light is really nice - I got it as an add-on with my quilting frame. But then when I finally ordered the machine, I got a deal on some other special lights, so I gave that one to DH. The sloped ceiling in that room makes lighting a bit of a challenge - can't put a floor lamp over there.

    I was going to say something smarty like “an attachment for a Hobby Horse”, and then I spotted the long brass....

    Ok, I thought you had gear that would make husbands. My mistake.

    Kind of what I was thinking. Most girls just go out and find one but I can see why you would want to make your own.
