Default 1913 White Treadle Sewing Machine

Hi,
I have a 1913 (or later, last patent was 1913) White treadle sewing machine. The lift mechanism on the cabinet is missing. I was trying to find a diagram of how it works and where I can get the replacement parts. I can find a diagram of a 1903 cabinet but it is much different than mine. Does anyone have any information on this? Thank you.

I took off the wire guide just under the cabinet lid and it has a patent from March 28, 1916. I have attached some pictures of the front and back of the guide and of the machine cabinet. I hope that helps. The cabinet has 6 drawers. The machine serial number is FR 2680428

Try reducing the file size to something smaller than 2MB.

We like pictures. In order to post pictures on Quilting Board, you will probably need to reduce or compress the picture to a file size that is smaller than 2MB. How to post images can be found at https://www.quiltingboard.com/attach...020-01-17-.pdf
Don't forget to scroll over to the far right to find and click on the "Upload" button.

I have found that only the big red "Reply" button or "Quote" work to give me the paper clip icon to work for adding pictures.

I will try 1 picture at a time since each pic is under 1 MB.

Looking for photos of the cable attachment point for the sewing machine lifting mechanism (the machine is lifted by a cable when you open the leaf or "lid" on the cabinet) I need to confirm the attachment point and the way the cable adjusting lever (part number 619 in the manual) looks like when it is installed.
