Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I went hunting for one of my old panty hose to try out in treadle, only to find that I don't own any. In winter, I wear pants, and when weather turns warm enough to wear dresses or skirts, I don't wear panty hose since I hate the feel of them.
I'll have to purchase a pair to test. I'm now curious.
Not a close up of the tubing but you can see it working here:
This is my 306w and it is my treadle pitman link making the terrble clunking noise. The camera was sitting on the table and makes it sound LOUD.
Moistened it a bit, slides together much easier/farther. Hope it holds up and works well for you!
Hmm I might have slit the tube an extra time (removed a small bit, to make it roll easier too)
Howdy! Does anyone happen to own a New Royal treadle machine? I am interested in one and seem to not be searching correctly. I can't find out very much about it, except for locating machines that are for sale. Thanks!
Dang it! It followed me home....how does that happen? Mizkaki, when you get moved and settled, and I figure out what I need, we need to talk about cams for this one! I have 9 or 10...just need the rest of the set....and it's missing the pin tucker too....
One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.
(wonder how those things 'know' who to following home)
Hey Charlee, did your machine have a friend that you may have sent my way??? Look what followed me home today:> It's a 1956ish Supermatic, with a bunch of cams in great cosmetic condition. But, as usual with these the drive pulley is bad and I'll have to replace it. And learn how in the process!

Oh Miss Charlee, I thought WE were on the 12-step program? Hm? Hm? I won't mention that I just made a phone call about a CL and I'm waiting a pic with the bonnet off the top of the machine. (Chuckle, "It's just black and has paint. Just like a Singer. Too old, it's just for looking pretty. Doesn't work".) Picture sure looked pretty 'nuf. Can't wait to see the real deal.
We're not too good at this self-control stuff :-)
Lovely machine you got yourself there girl. Enjoy.
If it can be taught, it can be learned.
