    :shock: :shock: :shock: How dare they!! LOL Creative idea, but I sure hope those treadle machines were in such horrible condition that they couldn't be saved & this was their only salvation.

    My DH wants one. I told him there was no way I would participate in the killing of an vintage sewing machine. He thinks my Singer 99K would make a really awesome tractor. I say my Singer 99K makes a really awesome straight stitch, so dream on.

    I would hope they were well and truly past their use-by date too. They do look nifty though :)

    You go, girl! Protect your 99K - those vintage machines are the greatest!

    How many of us would love to have a vintage treadle? I hate to see this sort of thing happen.

    Yeah, I hate those, vanities made from treadle bases, lamps, etc. I can't help but think either the one I'm looking at was "killed" to make the item or that others will be inspired to destroy a working machine to imitate it.
