    I believe that looks almost like the library table, the legs do, but it isn't the library table cabinet.

    I came across his blog when researching the Bell machine. There had been a Bell for sale at one of the thrift stores out in Modesto; listing was on CL. I had never seen a Bell; so, I did a google. His Blog was the most info on Bell that I could find:http://www.doubleveil.net/zssmp/bell.htm

    Monica,
    My Pfaff treadle is a sweet machine, so smooth, its a natural born treadle. Its very smooth and quiet. The only thing I can't get it to do is wind a bobbin, the bobbin tension disc is messed up. I wind bobbins on my electric Pfaff or one of the Singer 15s. I'm making log cabin blocks with her now. I named her Gertrude after my great Aunt.

    Ps.The Singer 101 has the potted motor and a smaller hand wheel.

    You know how you can just look at some machines and they look like they will be smooth to treadle. That Pfaff treadle of yours looks that way. Sorry to hear that the bobbin tension disc is messed up. At least you have another to use as the winder.
