    Dang, I didn't remember about the needles, thanks.
    Speaking of Charlee, where are you Charlee? I haven't seen you at the shop for awhile. I do hope everything is ok in your corner of the world... not too far from me! :D

    Billy here are the pictures. This machine is in great shape. The number is 3171412 -- I sent a picture, but hard to read with my camera -- I couldn't get a clear picture.

    The bobbin winder is just kinda stuck on the back -- not sure how to work it -- it must attach to the main belt?

    The tension disk is on the front on the machine towards the top. The front of the machine has decals instead of a face plate. I have no idea how to thread this machine.

    The bobbin is very narrow and just slides over a little handle into the bobbin case -- the bobbin does not have a removable case.

    Very interesting!

    Nancy

    Billy, do you want to trade your Singer for my 1907 White?

    Jackie I paid $50 for the 1879 one and $50 for one from 1939 (I didn't post pictures of the 1939 treadle), but they are both in very good shape. They were owned by one family who took care of them.

    Wow, that is so good. Though not good for me. I showed my DH and now he thinks I should only buy machines for that amount. I guess he is right, the fun part is looking and searching for that perfect deal. ;-)

    I wouldn't plan on paying only $50 for a treadle. I just lucked out. Most of the time the machines around here go for $100 to $150.

    Billy did you see my pictures of the 1879 treadle?

    I agree with you, but my DH is a used car salesman. So to him everything is negotiable, and cheaper is always better...... :-D
