    My husband took my old treadle and fixed it up for me. The top was dried out and cracked and misshaped. The machine was rusted. He made a new top and had sewing machine painted and now it sews like a charm.

    It does not tuck under table. Since I use it and never put it up I told my husband to make it permanently up.
