How is Minnie doing? I was lying in bed contemplating sleep, when I thought about Minnie. I said a little prayer that you have a smooth passage with the remodel. This is a very old machine and you have your work cut out for you. Be sure to post when you finish. This will be a great transformation indeed. Can't wait to see.
I think mice are cute BUT- a treadle machine brought hitchhikers that moved into my car's AC/heating system. Over $200 to get the ductwork cleaned- and the smell was awful. No machine comes near my car til I've emptied all the drawers into a box.
Lesson learned. The odor from the machine was not fresh so I'm "hoping" there were no mice there.
If there are any mice in my Pathfinder one of my cats will spend the night in it.
