    It is a full size machine and is Very, Very heavy.

    Sadly, I think SOMEONE actually sanded them off. Not me!

    Grant that Minnesota A is drop dead gorgeous! I would love to put that puppy in a treadle or hand crank her! You do a great job cleaning up and preserving the details on your machines! What a beauty! You need to post these in the photo shop too! They are beautiful machines!

    Grant did you take that Minnesota out of a treadle and put it in that case? That bobbin winder won't work the way you have the machine now unless you know a secret I don't know? Did you get the machine with the friction pulley motor added? That was one of the problems when people put a motor on their treadles - the bobbin winder! Or maybe, you could put a tire on the bobbin winder so it will connect to the hand wheel when you try to use it? Interesting!

    Oh, and yes, it does have a feed drop and zig zag. The stitch width is regulated by the lever just below the black knob. The black knob controlls the needle left and right setting. The center position is straight zig zag and the left setting is just zig and the right is just zag. I hope that makes sense.

    I did not but I can tell that at one time it was in a Treadle. It has a generic conversion done to it and my guess it was a pretty late conversion. Later motor and bracket as well as a 50's tweed case. Name:  IMG_8388.JPG

Size:  1,009.3 KB The motor mount was drilled and tapped into the back of the machine to mount the motor bracket. There is not a motor lug on it. Ahhhh, the bobbin winder. Two different belts of different sizes. Slip one off and slip the other on to wind a bobbin. No clutch wheel loosening for this baby. lol. It works amazingly well and super simple. It took me a minute to figure it out but I remembered the other belts in with the accessories and it was simple. If you have a treadle, It is for sale.

    On the painted surfaces I ALWAYS use and swear by CAR WAX! I can't say that loud enough. It will not damage the paint and is cheap and no fumes or skin problems. I'm an old gearhead that had a show car. I use a product called Nevr-Dull Wadding Polish. It is safe for all metals and works great on sewing machine parts. You can get it at auto parts stores like Auto Zone. In the cracks a wooden toothpick is best. It does not scratch the paint or chrome and can really get in there.
