    If I had the room I'd go after it. It's sort of in my parameters since Brother eventually bought Jones.

    How would you strip it without destroying the decals underneath?
    It's a beautiful treadle base and top. Really a shame what happened to the machine. It looks like the needlebar and presser foot were painted too.

    Cari if you get it, I'd be happy to help with cleaning off the paint.
    I'd like to see the machine saved. You would probably enjoy treadling if you don't already have one.

    EDIT: Sounds like crocee may know a solvent that will soften the paint but not the shellac.
    It may be possible if that's the case.

    It's tempting, but I just don't have any room for it. Really. Between my own machines and cabinets, machines being serviced(note to self- get off your butt and get them done) for other people, and the two cabinets that are supposed to go to other people I literally can't walk through my house without tripping over at least one. But wait- hmm....maybe if I get rid of the empty big treadle desk in the dining room. NO!!! Can't do it! Man, you guys are a bad influence on me, lol. Arguing with myself is giving me a headache.

    OMG, it's back up again! This guy just doesn't learn. Maybe we should bombard his email.

    Yes, hard to see something as perfect condition when the legs have been hacked off!

    Unless the head was prepped (sanded) the paint (most likely latex or acrylic since it looks sprayed on with a spray can) should wipe off. If it was sanded the decals are most likely toasted anyway. Sometimes duct tape will remove the paint but not harm the shellac surface. Plain old sewing machine oil may remove the paint since its most likely just sitting on the surface.
