    What is this?

    Singer 66 treadle, 15-91. 1036. White 2334 Brother serger. And Singer 600 (Touch & Sew) that doesn't count because I only wanted the cabinet!

    That's what it looks like to me but he says he makes them himself. Did you notice the brown powder coated featherweight?

    yes he's been at that for awhile, he just drills a hole in the release knob and screws in a what used to be call a trailer house window crank, you can do the same thing for about 5 bucks . now days the most common place to get the crank would be a RV supply

    A jury rigged solution looking for a problem to create.

    I rank this in the same league as the light fixture through the arm on the other machine.

    I love the old iron and wood machines. They're solid and reliable.

    I'm not certain of how many people want to hand crank their featherweights.
    Yes, it does take a little time to drill and tap a hole for the screw.

    The markup may still be just a wee bit high.

    Maybe I should steal the idea for the machines I want to bring to next year's fair, the part getting modified isn't exactly hard to come by.

    AHA! I knew I'd seen a FW handcrank somewhere. Ed Lamoureux also gave one of his an alternate power source:

    Yes, I’ve seen that. That’s amusing. You’ll notice that he said that his machine didn’t work very well. Mine does.
