Default Change hand crank to treadle?

One of my fellow crafters has a hand crank machine for stitching leather. One of his helpers was talking about having stitched 20+ hours on it last week and wondering if it would be possible to convert it to treadle.

So all you knowledgable people, where would they start looking for a treadle assembly that would fit their machine and then how would they go about doing the conversion???

a lot would depend on the machine. If it is a Singer domestic that "sews leather" that is one thing. If it is a Tippman Boss that is another...

Will try to find out exactly what machine they have. Got the impression it was industrial but could be wrong. Just know they use it for making armor.

Hmmmm. As a Master Armor maker myself, I am more than a bit curious... (www.crimsonforge.com)
