    Default enabeling friends Gold Hibbard close to me.

    So I swore off more treadles.. really again and then a friend turns me on to this. Gold Hibbard

    Huh???

    VS machine, treadle drive Chain lift, two shuttles, 5 bobbins in the case with some rotaries ( grin) beautiful cabinet, wooden pittman arm and the store is moving. gotta re-think. What furniture can leave? Stack another treadle?


    Steve refers to the "Hibbard, Spencer, Bartlett & Company" of Chicago, and that it was the company that started the True Value Brand (Sold it in 1962)"[ATTACH=CONFIG]594192[/ATTACH]

    Just starting the info quest.

    It got away. Store closed yesterday after I left it, but someone else bought it. Hope it will be used or at least admired and not be turned into a lamp. Signs still at the curb today , but it was locked up. sigh. Oh well.I have plenty to keep me busy.

    I am hoping someone on this board got it.

    It's ok though. I have some other mighty pretty ones. and I hadn't even figured out who made it yet. National? Davis.?

    Oooo, the little bobbin holders for the spindle shaped bobbins. Hmm, wonder if the engineer can copy that??

    Thanks Cathy, I was leaning that direction.

    the madpatter, I would think that drilling holes into a block of wood would do it.
