Default Willcox & Gibbs treadle sewing machine.

Hi just purchased a Willcox & Cobb treadle sewing machine. It is missing some parts having hard time finding them. One part is spool pin, spool pin holder and missing the belt for the treadle belt. I have looked on ebay and found very expensive. Does some know were I can find them. I bought the machine it has motor that sets behind the small wheel with rubber belt. So any help would be greatly appreciated.

No it means ( Asahi) meaning is Morning, Sunlight. We was our first Akita Japanes Dog. He was my sons first dog. We had a female Akita her name was Tsuki her name meant Moon. Our last Akita 13 years old and name is Akiko his name means Autumn child. We name all of our Akitas Japanes names. They are great dogs. There a true story a Famous Akita named Hachi he is a national treasure. They a movie of him just updated movie it's a true story. Richard Gear is in it. The whole family can watch it. But I have to warn you there will not be a dry eye in the room.

It is sad that when I was using an Ashai Pentax camera I didn't know the meaning. Thanks.
