    True... I could. And that's certainly a good option. I don't believe the cabinet is oak though, too smooth a grain for it. Cherry? There's figuring in it. (See pictures) I think it's either mahogany or cherry. We'll see what we have in the next couple of days when I get around to actually stripping it. I included a close up of the topper, and large diameter crackled section.

    Good grief, I only lurk because I don't have any old machines yet, but since I looked this a.m. I've had almost 6 pages to read. You guys/gals sure are a busy group. LOL

    You know Glen if she will bring food to you that might be a good thing to happen!

    Billy
    ROTF!!!! Glenn and Billy, you guys should 'take it on the road' as a comedy act! I'm already planning how to give away my 70s Singer desk cabinet to make room for two vintage cabinets in my sew room. But now I'll have three... ! I'll be in the doghouse, for sure. lol. What to DO!?! You know, I WILL NOT like the food in the doghouse!

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: )

    Here are some interesting reads about Eldridge through the years

    Very pretty machine, but did you know that the left front leg swings out and goes under the top to help support it? If you don't do this it will break the hinges on the top. I have one and like using it because with the leg out it give you more leg room under the table.
