According to Oxford, the definition for treadle is "a lever worked by the foot that imparts motion to a machine." I work in a sheet metal shop and was reading the information on a hydraulic press brake, when I noticed the familiar term treadle. It is actuated by stepping on a bar that goes across the lower portion of the machine.

The Fabricator is a little speedier "Stitch-by-Stitch up to 1,108 stitches/minute"
