Default Tombstone Treadle

Walking the dog yesterday in the local cemetery came upon this, tugged my heartstrings a couple of times. [ATTACH=CONFIG]548677[/ATTACH]

I am going to have a much smaller one that is flat. Treadle machine might be doable for me. Thanks for the post.

I was amazed at the condition of some of the tombstones, one from 2003 was barely legible others were 100 yrs old and looked brand new.
