Does anyone have any recommendations for a 1909 working treadle machine, in a well kept cabinet. I am looking at one this week and would like to know what you might think it is worth. Thanks.

You should go on the Vintage Machine Shop here and ask that question. There are several resident experts on antique/vintage machines, especially the treadles.

Do you know the model?
How are the decals?
Does it come with a manual and accessories?
How is the cabinet?
Do you have a picture?

If it is a Singer and has all the decals and it is a desired one it could be $50-200 and up.

Very pretty! The decals are not all in tact - there is visible (normal) wear to the spot where sewers rest their arm and in the middle.

Ok, without taking a ton of time I'd swag this to be a 66 (possibly back clamp) - great machine! will run and sew like a champ forever!

I bought like that for $40 with no cabinet.

I bought an older one like that with it's cabinet and accessories for $125.

What price will make you happy? These are wonderful machines and the cabinet has very pretty antique tigering (I love that!!!).

hope that helps you (I'm not a dealer, just someone who loves these machines and buys too many).

This looks a lot like my
great Grandmother's 1926 machine that I have.

I paid about $125 for a singer 3/4 treadle in an average cabinet and I was happy to find it. They are few and far between here.
