Ok, so last night I think I made a really good find.
This was on Craigslist here in the SF Bay area
I could not help myself when I saw the asking price.
(I thought it was a typo)
$15 (yep, just 3/4 of a yuppie food stamp)
So it is missing the bobbin holder, bobbin, and needles.
I have these from my "later" White Rotary
Think they will work?
I LOVE the "foot" pedal
Here is the BIG issue. I need to replace the "dogbone" shaped swivel for the motor.
I am pretty sure that this 1917 unit was originally a treadle and "electrified" based on the decal in the back and the hole for the light being into the front decal. I may just convert it to a hand crank and be done. The wiring is SCARY but it actually works, pedal moves motor spins!
Thanks again for this fun site.
