    This machine was purchased as a restoration project that never got done.
    Someone started to clean the machine and silvered some of the decals, oh well...what is done is done.

    This isn't the worst cabinet that I have picked up, but this will be the worst one that I restore. I have the other drawer pulls in one of the drawers.
    I have NO idea where I'm going to put this machine...but I'm looking forward to cleaning her up.
    Monica, that is the prettiest cabinet I have seen in a long time. I love the shape of the cabinet! I especially love the 'feet' on the treadle; and, the name Eldredge on the treadle. Such a cool looking outfit! It doesn't look like it was wet? I can't wait to see that cabinet refinished - it will be a knockout! I have decided I am not getting any more treadle cabinets unless they are really ornate - I love the ones that have the company name on the cabinet or treadle irons like the way White and New Home did - I have never seen an Eldredge with the name on the cabinet and irons before! Keep us posted on your progress with that cabinet.

    Jon,

    We definetly do not need any suggestions on other sewing related memorabilia to save..oops collect!!

    I have officially put myself on a timeout as I am afraid of accidentally vaccinating myself with one of my treasures!!

    I've never seen one in operation, just read about them. Hopefully, it will have been a good buy ($163) It looks to be in nice condition. Anyway, I suppose I'm just looking for a little affirmation .
    I like my 301... It is very user friendly... and a pleasure to sew with

    Maybe...but the postage makes it $49 already, if it goes off for that it might be worth it...much more and I don't know.

    Since my worktable is in the house most of the time, I really needed something that would get them off the table just a bit. I imagine I will make one for the larger machines when I redo one. I am not a carpenter, but can nail a nail into a 2 x 4.
