    Here are the three Singer treadles that I purchased on Craigslist for $65 for all three. They need a lot of work, but I am up for it. It was a great buy and between my DH and I, we are going to get them to look pretty good I think.

    Hey, I just got a 127 treadle with the Sphinx decals today! Can't wait to spend some time finding my treadle rhythm.

    I really have to wait until the weather warms up here to give them their "bath", but in the meantime, I'm going to start stripping the #15 and get all her pieces separated and buy replacements for what she is missing.

    Both of them are Model 27's and they are not bad at all. I would repaint the worst of the two and refurbish the other.

    Here is a link for the manual for you machines.

    Thanks Billy, thats what I was thinking of doing. Since I am going to keep the 15-91, but use it as an electric machine, I am going to strip that one down and have my body shop paint it. The 27 will be done too. I am planning on keeping the better 27 for myself and use it as a treadle. YAY!
