Someone looking for a Baby Bell: http://modesto.craigslist.org/atq/3142107452.html
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
How could anyone in their right mind put a Touch and Throw into such a beautiful treadlecabinet? The poster could have cleaned up the old machine. Cabinet was nicely redone! Eeks!!
your getting a complete goodrich set and a singer so two machine for the price
so why not picture both items there selling...
it's no like there selling a singer in a white cabinet. there price is the norm for a complete treadle
I don't mean to be nasty here in my next question...and sometimes I do find you amusing, BUT...
Do you ever read what you write? Sometimes your logic just doesn't make any sense.
In my opinion, a free Touch & Trash isn't worth going after. And then there is your last sentence...
I bought a 1/4" x 84" belt from Cindy Peters, it arrived yesterday and I shortened it and got it put on. I thought about buying a roll of belt leather rather than just a belt. My new Pfaff is in very good condition, only needed to have the spider egg sacs vacuumed off and the machine and treadle delinted and oiled. After I installed the new belt, I sewed on
a scrap of fabric; it sews very nicely and no clanking or squeaking anywhere.
However I didn't get to sew for very long. I was talking to Cindy on my cell phone and not paying attention to where I was walking. I tripped over a laundry basket that was in the hall. I'd gone to get a spool of thread from the treadle room and a UFO that I'm piecing. I fell really hard(hardwood floors here) and thought that I'd broken my hip, I managed to get up off the floor and I couldn't move my left leg. So....I called 911 and the EMT's were sent to my house; took a trip to the hospital and spent the next 7 hours in the ER. The x-rays and CT scan showed nothing was broken in my knee or hip; only lots of soft tissue damage. My left knee,hip and cheek are scraped and bruised, lots of pretty colors.
I won't be treadling for a while.

Sorry to hear about your trip and fall. Get better quick, your treadle will get lonely. .
Also, I keep hearing the name Cindy Peters but I can't put a web site with the name. I could use some thicker treadle belts so, could you point me in her direction?
Take care and heal well.
Oh Sharon...ouch. Can you believe that Olympic runner ran 200 M out of a 400M race with a snapped leg bone after what you went through? Boggles my mind.
