Treadle number two (which is actually the first one I aquired). Bartered for! And picked up in northern Missouri. Model number B73785, Which I believe makes it a Singer 27, made in November, 1904, in New Jersey. It's missing one little bit, which I can get on ebay!


Once again, all I did was gently wipe off the dust and cobwebs with some mild soapy water, then added a light layer of handmade furniture polish. All the moving bits flow freely and really, it's in great shape! I'll get the missing plate ordered...and then figure out how to get it threaded and get treadling!

This looks like the machine I learned to sew on in the mid 50's in Camanche, Iowa.
