A random selection of post about travel, and tinkering with mechanical machines. Mostly cars from 1937 to 1999, manufactured in English speaking parts of the world, but also kayaks and sewing machines. So here you can see how we travel, drive, paddle, break fix and find on a regular basis.
This 1926 Treadle machine has a past of a long history . Sometime the cover was lost, so someone made a beautiful new one. Very similar to the older 12K cases. Later another cover was found, so we have two covers. The new one suits the single drawer table well.
The machine is well used. The two metal covers have gone missing too, so there are two home made aluminium on the machine now.
Mechanically the machine is very good and it sews as a new one.
As always the machine shows beautiful details, like the decorated headplate and nifty side panel support.
