Default 1882 New Home Treadle

I was thrilled when a friend gave me a1882 treadle. I have the original instruction book and several attachments. It is in good working order. It is in the original cabinet. The wood is being refinished. I was surprised that the value is at most $400. Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder!

If it's that old, the base should have square corners instead of rounded ones. It will also have the "primitive" bobbin winder (no guides). New Home changed the look in the late 1880's, so getting the earlier style is really, really neat. I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of it.

Great news Marti!

I too want to see a pic. I have a square base treadle (1883-1885) head with neat, although fragile decals. Just purchased a bobbin and shuttle that works! I am thrilled. Have been looking for a cabinet and found one for sale at the North Carolina TOGA a few weeks ago. That head had no decal and some chip paint but it sews too! Brought home drawers and head and will pick up the cabinet on trip through Virginia in a few weeks.

Yes it has the square edges, side pin hinges and side leaf.

I have a later manual found online,so would love to see the older one. I was able to buy a tin of attachments online that I believe would fit.

Ok- two posters with older New Homes - and no pictures!

Maria - I would love to see yours too! I'm very interested in how they have the attachments "attaching". The older ones just mounted to the round bar, though I've several sets that have different adapters that you could mount to the bar and then the feet hooked to that. Also, I think people may have bought the top clamp adapter when it came out, and they they could use the "newer" top clamp attachments.

Kathy-do you have the original book for the New Home? Directions for attachments are in the original book.

All the manuals I have are for the newer style Model A - and they show the regular top clamp type (Greist ones). For what ever reason, I have the widest selection of different mounting types for New Home. I'd love to see a manual that showed the Toof or Johnston sets.

I got my used shuttle from another collector.

Here is a pic of the 'head only' I have for which I was searching for the correct base
Nope won't work! Let me see.. do I need permission to post pic ?
