    You are too funny tonight - wish I had energy to get going on some re-dos!

    Thanks Irishrose! You are always so helpful and go out of your way to be there for us. I tried to find something in this thread but no luck.
    Carmon from April 1930's said that it is a lead tube that encloses the wires to protect them from the gears. He recommended a wire brush to remove it. This is not something that needs to be all the time. It was because of not being done for a long time. I hope this info can help someone else :thumbup:

    Can you imagine what people 100 years from now are going to think? Between the paint jobs, taking motors off and putting machines in treadles, modifying machines to fit in treadles, piecing treadles together of different brands, -- this is going to drive someone crazy some day!

    We will certainly give them something to think about!! LOL Nancy, I'll take some photos of the machine covers soon and post along with photos of the 'new' machines.

    Missed out on the two my son found on Freecycle, he was in a meeting (at work) and by the time he got back to email they were gone. Oh well, at least someone else has the opportunity of saving them now!!

    What a fantastic job you've done on the restoration. Just shows what a bit of elbow grease and TLC will do.

    Thanks Bronwyn! I'm so excited over her. Now all I really want is a hand crank machine and then I'll be super happy and probably done collecting for a little while. :)
