    That machine is in Topeka, KS, about an hour from me!! I'm ignoring the siren call.

    Love it... !

    The American Girl is so darling. That would be nice to display with an American Doll sitting next to it.

    I'm cleaning up my Necchi SuperNova. What can you use to clean the accessory box? Water and a bit of dish soap? I read that they are made of bakelite?
    Thank you, Anamaria

    I live in TOPEKA but just don't have the room for a treadle.

    Neither do I have the room but it is calling my name. I am ignoring it so far. Will power don't fail me know.

    A little dish soap and water should do fine.

    Anamaria, That looks clean to me. I just wipe it down with water and a bit of the dish soap. Just don't used alcohol to clean it. There are numerous tips on the net, but I haven't tried any of them with my Necchi box for cleaning it up. I never realized this was bakelite. Thanks for that bit of info!

    looks like the pic is upside down or something - what is it?
    Miriam,

    It looks like a Chandler Button Machine. Not sure about the model, but it could be a 471. It sews buttons onto clothing. It can be set to 2-hole or 4-hole buttons, but Im not sure about shank buttons. Its operated by hand crank, and the machine does a cycle of so many stitches to attach the button before cutting the thread. Many Dry Cleaners still use them, and I got to work on one for our local cleaners. I fell in love with it, and Ive been trying to snag one for our little shop.
