Last summer, I found a Red-Eye for $45. Had been converted to electric. The cabinet was in really bad shape.
Since then I've been looking for a treadle & table. Well, I found the treadle. A neighbor had been using the BASE of her grandmother's treadle machine as the base of their round kitchen table-- for about 30 years. She was GIVING IT AWAY. I got it for free. Sorry. I got carried away there for a moment.
The treadle appears to work quite well. But it has no top.
I did some searching through here, but didn't find any info about retrofitting a vintage/antique back to treadle.... including making a new "table" to place between the base and the machine.
Many thanks... This is my first foray into vintage machine territory...
