    I was on ebay the other day and someone had this beauty listed for $100.00 and had a make offer button there. I submitted a offer of $75.00 and got it! Has all the attachments also. Should be here this week!
    Can't wait to try her out. I have several antique beauties. And will post pics of them here soon. I have recently aquired both of my great granmothers treadles. I already have a 12k new family treadle in working order. And one of theirs is a sphinx and the other I can't tell. It looks like it may be older than the other one. Will have to do some research on it. But I am going to have to really clean them. And maybe even repaint the one cause it has so much of the paint stripped away and no decals.

    Yes, good buy. A thrift store here has one for $45, but is missing half of the attachment and comes with a cabinet. Are attahment easy to find online somewhere? Please PM me with information. Thanks
