You could probably take that off and make a new treadle top for it. In the meantime I'll just assume the original top sat in a barn for 50 years and was full of worms and rot.

They're offering $50 for that sort of service and product. Blue Quill is boonyville for most of the Edmonton community...

this is a GOOD deal - New Crown Full treadle for $50
http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/atq/4527867982.html

This, not so much - 1927 Singer for $450
"Machine has original treadle as well as upgraded with electric peddle & small sewing lamp."
http://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/atq/4533410035.html

Cool Royal ZigZag, but $225, seriously?

And she likely wants it delivered on the wings of glitter fairies.

The really sad thing is it looks like a nice Victorian dresser of some sort died in that conversion too. I'll try to convince myself both pieces had serious issues and couldn't be saved.
The top is too big for the stand. It looks top heavy to me.
