    Wow, you'll have one like mine. Hope yours has the knob to stop the needle from going up and down, mine is missing and I have been unable to find one.

    Ok you guys, I finally got my Free treadle in the house. Had to put this one behind the sofa in the entry. I am sorry the cabinet photos didn't come out real clear.

    I moved my 15-88 into my sewing room! Yippeeeeeee! I finally made the commitment to have a treadle in the sewing room -- they are all over the house -- except the sewing room!

    Yes, they are mint on the back, just a little scuffed on the front! I love the foot pedal on the treadle! It says "The Free!" Pretty cool!

    Thank you!
