    Thank you for this site Miz Johnny! I have not had the privilege of sewing with a TS type shuttle. I will find one of those one of these days!

    Kim, You can see pic of the cabinet for my pathfinder. It is finished with a fumed oak stain with three coats of shellac. (page 392) I used clear shellac instead of the orange because the stain was dark enough. The finish when I got it was black with age and had been revarnished several times with some kind of dark finish that was crazed and dirty. Glenn

    OMG!!!! I went and pulled the treadle I bought last night out of the trunk and I looked in its drawers and I found the accessories. This machine has all sorts of brass feet (all with the big E for Eldridge on them) and has the key to the locks on the top and drawers. The best I can tell it was made in 1885, I know it can not be any later than 1886 because they change locations of manufacture and it says Chicago on the machine in several places.

    I think this will be one of the nicest machines in my collection before its over with. Also does anyone know where I can find the dating information for the Eldridge machines? I posted on the NB but as usual I am black balled and they are ignoring me. (I will try to muster a surprised look on my face :lol: )

    buslady,

    If you go to the webshot site listed, and browse through, you'll see that there is a booklet there you can click on and it will open up so you can look at the dating info you are looking for. Hope this helps.

    buslady, it's on page 1 and it says "serial numbers/dating machines. . . . Try that and see if it works for you. I just tried it again and I can go to it.
