Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Cathy, I got the bobbin winder to engage, but I will take you up on the tire. The tire on this machine is shot. I haven't tried the needle yet. Still oiling and cleaning.
Anyone know how to date an Adler? The serial number is 208232. I am already in love with this machine. I love the face - it reminds me of my Wheeler & Wilson's, which are 2 of my favorite treadles.

Just started working on my newest find...looks promising after a few hours of clean up. This is my second White Treadle....1890.... I love these treadles and they are the reason I got into the hobby besides from my recent fixation with the Bernina's.
I know what you mean about the treadles. Treadles are still my first love, but it is just so hard to house them! I said I'd never separate my machines from their treadles, but I have started doing just that! I can't keep all the treadles! I now have 3 treadle cabinets in my storage unit, but their machine is on a shelf in my sewing room! One of the treadles I don't have is a White! Nice find! I would like to eventually have a treadle from each manufacturer! Did I say that? Oh geeze, I HAVE to stop!
Marlboro is one of the best so far though. Jokes just write themselves. - Does it come in a cabinet, case, or carton? Does it chain stitch or chain smoke? Nice machine but I can't get it to stop smoking. The only Marlboro that doesn't cause cancer.
Sorry, I just couldn't help myself Nancy.
NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.
