Treadle Sewing Machine
Found on Craig's List for $125. It was the only one in working condition listed. Owner said his father bought it for his own use including sewing upholstery. It will sew thicker materials than an electric motor driven machine. Sewing hems on jeans was always a problem with my electric one. Haven't tried this one out yet. I had to wait five days for Tim to help me carry it into the house because of the weight and width of it. I want to get it oiled and a new belt before running it through it's paces. The belt on this one is very dried out. We had a treadle sewing machine at my home in Bangkok, but when I asked about it last I was there, it had been sold. So I started looking for one here. The California climate has probably been kinder to this one. Cabinet top is warped from having a plant on it, though. Typical for here; people sacrifice good wood things with bad plant management. The cabinet looks much like the one we had in Thailand. I'm glad the cabinet is not ornate. It has a plain workmanlike sensibility about it.
