    I will show some detail about the treadling for those who are interested. The 401G is set up to treadle. The 411G is able to treadle but is not set up to treadle at this time. The 401A might need some major modification to treadle.

    The belt goes through the front of the machine and down to the wheel through a knock out in the bottom of the machine. The back goes through a channel in the back of the machine.

    The fronts of the machines are similar - you can see the place to knock out in the front of the 411G

    The back of the G machines have a channel for the treadle belt.

    The bobbin race from the Singer 411G has a little hook so that it can make a chain stitch

    Do you see a hook inside the nose door? extra thread guides outside?
