    I have a similar set-up. The pedal does look like a treadle pedal, and even into the 40's these machines were set up as treadles with the option of motors. I understand that during WWII the Navy had some of these as treadles on ships for use by the sailors. (If it is not a treadle, that is the clutch. My clutch is a solid plate, however, and that one is like the wrought-iron pedals on treadle machines.)

    I looked at the industrial again. My bad. This is motorized - no wheel for the treadle belt.
