    Smile Treadle find today!

    This is the treadle I bought today for $100. It is all original with manual, the decals are outstanding, and the cabinet needs a little cleaning. It only has a few nicks here and there. Nothing big though. Needs oiling but all parts move. Has a shuttle bobbin with both face places. I found it on Craigslist in Murrell's Inlet, SC and had to drive from Summerville, SC to pick it up (about 1 1/2 hrs.). I just love it and the SN lists it from 1925. I hope it was a good deal also but love it anyway!!! WooHoo ( It is dirty not pitted. It is very smooth. Just haven't had time to clean it yet...)

    It's a real beauty and I'm sure that you'll find it was worth the travel. Thanks for sharing.

    I love it, it's beautiful. Makes me want to cry, I have a treadle that had the sphinx decal (it WAS beautiful) and I ruined it trying to clean it. I had to strip it down to bare metal... So sad, be careful cleaning it. Do not soak the head in hot soapy water like I did to clean out the inside. The finish turned all white and wouldn't dry out.

    Very pretty!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    You did good, girl!! It's not easy to find one of those with the manual and everything in such good condition. Too many people put them up in the barn and they got really yucky!! Yours is beautiful.
