    I emailed my husband a CL add for what I thought just a singer treadle. Well when he gets there they show him that they also have a bent wood case but don't know in it because it's locked. They wanted $40 both. So when he gets them home I open the case to find a beautiful 99!! It runs and had the manual. The treadle is a 27 dated 1906.

    Nice score!!! Good hubby!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Its H1692661. The cabinet needs some work... but I found a tutorial on here and I am hoping I can just clean it up and not have to refinish it. I was looking for a cabinet for my 66 but I feel like the 27 belongs in this one and don't think that I can switch them.

    Oooooh, your DH bagged a pheasant . Lucky you. It looks as if it will clean up nicely. I am envious.

    I love them both.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    The front and side of this one look great and even when you open the top. However the top looks like it was used in a garage for a work bench and is in bad shape. I am waiting for my dad to take a look and let me know if it can be saved. I'm hoping it just needs a little sanding and finish.
