    I inherited my Mom's treadle sewing machine. The first pic (obviously) is the condition I received it in. Then I took the machine to Billy (Lostn51) and he performed a miracle. Then Tom (a friends father) restored the cabinet. Now I need to find a spindle and 2 screws to attach the machine to the hinges. Billy do you know where I can find these needed parts? Thanks for taking a look at Wanda.....newest and brightest part of the family.

    Old tired Wanda

    I never would have thought you'd find such a beauty under all that paint. Great restoration job! You have a real treasure, especially since this came from your mom.

    Whatever in the world would possess someone to paint a machine? Decor matching? LOL She really did clean up. Great job.
