Great!

We have "sister" machines.

Mine came with the manual - if you need one I have it posted here

Cathy, that's so generous, thank you! Any helpful tips you can provide? I'm busy cleaning and buffing! The silver portions are really cruddy.

I did. I registered and verified thru my email and it still won't let me see it. Odd.

Actually, what it says is I don't have permission to perform this action.

Hmm- you may want to contact the admin of that site. I thought it would work fine when I posted the link or I would not have done so.

I just tried from work before signing in and it opened to a sign-in page. I opened a new window to sign in and refreshed the link, but it still took me to a sign-in page. In other words, I had to sign in twice to open the manual.

Turns out you do have to be a member to be able to download the manuals. I've got Moderator status specifically so I can upload my entire manual collection. About half way through my "other than Singer" group, so it's going slowly. My DH is doing the scanning.

The owner of that site feels copies of non-copywrited manuals should be free - and I'm onboard with that. I like having the originals as part of my collection.

Angie,

you mentioned needing a belt the right size. Treadle belts are leather with a staple to join the ends, so you buy one that is longer than needed and cut it to fit your machine/treadle base setup. They come if a few different diameters, but I've not found if that makes a big difference in performance, or it's just a personal preference.
