    I saw one of those treadle scroll saws at Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO several years ago. The fellow operating it could sure turn out some pretty stuff.

    I would love it to, but they're asking $125 for it, and that's more than I would want to spend, especially since it has no cabinet with it.

    Oh and the bobbin was not a shuttle it was round and it had a motor and belt and was in a treadle cabinet, which must have been from her original machine which I don't remember.
    And Yes to round bobbin too!

    Kathie New Home was originally a manufacturer. Boy, it sounds like this lady doesn't know what she has?

    There is a neat Red Eye in a plain cabinet on the Wichita CL for $100 OBO. Looks like the decals are in pretty good shape, missing the slide plate, of course, lol.

    I am going to look at a treadle today, it has a 1904 Standard machine. I have tried to find info. about it online, no luck. Can anyone tell me anything about it?

    The cabinet has been painted, so it needs to be stripped and refinished whick I think I can handle. But I want to be able to sew on this, so I need to know if bobbins/needles are still available to find. The machine comes with an instruction manual and attachments.

    If anyone can give me any info. it would be greatly appreciated!

    I would have to look at the machine to see what model it is and all but if I had the chance at getting it I would. But I really like the early non Singers. It will more than likely be a special needle like a 20x1 but you can fudge a regular needle and get it to work. But all of this is just speculation because we havent sen it yet.

    Go get it and post photos!!

    I had no problem getting into Needlebar just now (had to try it after reading here that people were not getting through). I was asked to login with my login name and password, but it went straight through.

    Could it be that people here have forgotten what they logged in with originally?

    I have such a poor memory, that whenever I join a new group, I write down the details.
