It looks like it was only manufactured as a HC. It is so cute, a little 3/4 size machine!
    Here is a picture of the New Home.

    Will post the Wilcox and Gibbs later -- love that little W&G treadle. The treadle is really cute with feet for the pedal! Both of these machines belonged to the owner's grandmother, then mother, now me! I am hopeless!

    I would have grabbed it in a heartbeat--so beautiful!

    Charles Law dates the New Home T3 (Climax Model T class) 1910's - 20's. It was also produced as an electric. (I've seen several of those.)

    Please remember that they don't arrive looking like that!! Don't discount a machine because it isn't quite "perfect". Take a look at this:

    I went and bought 2 more machines today and I am done buying for a while!! I picked up a 1932 Singer 66 complete with documentation and all accessories in a rare #306 Cabinet. And I picked up a 1880's Domestic treadle complete with attachments and manual.

    Here comes the hard part to swallow..... The machines finish (66) is really bad off and is going to need a repaint and I am going to separate everything and sell it all off. The machine will come with the documentation so it will be more valuable and have its original history with it. The cabinet is wonderful and complete with its oil can and spool holder. I am going to sell it as well since I do not have any electric machines and it will be in my way. It is just neat how the center will fold up like the old puzzle boxes when the machine is in use.

    The Domestic will be added to my collection and it needs some heavy duty cleaning but I think it will be a show stopper when its finished!

    It's a nice old White. Just needs some tlc.
    Thank you. I already luv her!! I even moved everything in that room to give her top space! Waiting for the man to head up in this direction this summer.. I think I will keep him kinda busy with a few. I did buy some stuff for cleaning after I picked her up... and some cotton balls. Will practice on my least favorite one! Geesh.. I now have 6 machines in less than 2 weeks. I think I need rehab!!
