    Wheeler and Wilson

    Has anyone heard of a Wheeler and Wilson Tredle machine? They were used in a young ladies finishing school. I purchased one but cannot locate any needles. It came with one. I have tried e-bay with no luck. Ant leads greatly appreciated.

    Oh Yeah, we've heard of the W&W treadle machines. They were an excellent machine. Singer bought them out in the early part of the last century and used their designs for a brief time.

    They take the 127x1 needle. You might PM mizkaki here on this forum, she "might" have some or know where you might get some.

    Thank you for the info. Good to have a # to go by. The mechanic that cleaned and checked it sold me some 20X1 and said that's what his book said. They don't fit!! grrrr. Thanks again.
