That is impressive. Usually treadle iron tables are lazy, but that one took some time and effort, assuming the finish on the wood is nicely done. Still unspeakably wrong.

Unless that slab has been very carefully cured (not likely) it's going to split.

Re: that poor little Featherweight in Columbia City
Oh, I wish I lived near there! I'd totally buy that. It needs some love. Sadly, I'm about a thousand miles away in Denver.

That might be the worst table top I have ever seen.

CD just posted about the first machine in a different thread. He's wondering if that's the 3/4 size treadle. If it is, it might be a diamond in the (very) rough. It is a sad one even by my "I can save it!" standards.
That second machine is an absolute beauty.
