I have seen others post pics of their treadles, and thought I would post mine. I have not really looked at it for several years. On the plate under the needle it has stamped Patented October 8 1850, at least I think that is what is says.
She needs to be cleaned up, and am thinking about sewing on it.
It also has a wooden tube of number 11 needles.
I would sure like to know how to clean it up without doing any damage.
