    Ill post photos of the cabinet in a bit and the treadle still needs to be picked up. I ran out of room in the car for another machine so I have to go back and get it.

    The machine will be in my "Clean the Studio" sale. ;-)

    Thank you Miz Johnny, it did have an external motor attached that I thought had been added later. It turns out after calling New Home the T 3 is a 1924 model. I could swear I read in Needlebar that these were only made as HC's, but I am obviously wrong about that! The coffin top has the extra room to have the little T3 a HC. I just might have to get a HC for her.

    I thought that weird tension assembly on top, was only made pre 1900 to early 1900's? I did not realize that weird tension thing on top was made into the 1900's? Page 665 if you guys want to know what tension thing I am talking about.

    I think all the pictures posted since page 664 are really beautiful. Good hunting guys and gals. Can't wait for spring so we can start looking.

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.

    Nancy, great!! Glad you got them.

    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!

    Hello everyone

    Dumb question, I accquired a 201k and a 99k from ebay, and both o fthem have the knee bar operation. Can these also be operated with the foot pedal? I have another 99k that has the foot pedal, and Im not sure if the other can be operated with it too. The plugs are the same, but I certainly dont want to blow it up!

    Also, the 201k came with no bobbins, does this take the flat sided bobbins, or the curved sided, the same as the 99k? The 201 is a 1953 model, so cast iron, not the newer shape as I have seen some of them.

    Nice, but I don't like the legs on it!!

    Here is one of mine, I have a really pretty one in the basement; for some reason I have no pictures!!

    I knew it! Way cool! Yours is so pretty. Yeah, I don't like the legs either, but the box is interesting. Just something I found in my travels the other night. Thanks for sharing yours!
