Default Seeking info on "Service" brand treadle. Help?

I just inherited my great-grandmother's treadle sewing machine, and have had no luck in finding information about it online. I'm hoping someone here can help?

Welcome to Quilting Board. I think it is neat when one inherits these vintage machines. Treadling is fun.

Since you said the name was "Service" and a treadle, my guess would be that it could be a Davis or maybe a Free. It actually, could be made by someone else, but Service is a badge name for at least those two.

The link does not have any photos.
We like pictures. In order to post pictures on Quilting Board, you will probably need to reduce or compress the picture to a file size that is smaller than 2MB. How to post images can be found at https://www.quiltingboard.com/attach...020-01-17-.pdf
Don't forget to scroll over to the far right to find and click on the "Upload" button.

I have found that only the big red "Reply" button or "Quote" work to give me the paper clip icon to work for adding pictures.

Some additional info regarding reducing images at post #4 and images for the scroll and upload button can be found at #5 of quilt block ID?

Another way to post pictures can be found at 2021/2022, 2.5 Birthday Swap
And how to use an ipad to post pictures can be found at Uploading photos

Or simply - Make sure pictures are smaller than 2MB
Click on red "Reply" button
Click on the paper clip icon
Click browse - choose picture/s. (only 5 allowed per post)
Once they show up as being loaded, Scroll over to the right side and click on "Upload"
After the pictures show up as being attached, you can close that window and go back to the screen to finish posting your post.

I'd love to see a picture of this machine! There are several folks here who can more easily identify who made the machine from the picture.
