Treadle and Hand Crank Sewing Machine Restoration or Refurbishment
This Singer 27 came in kind of rough condition. I was able to refurbish this machine without the customer having the expenditure associated with a full restoration. Now it looks good in the restore cabinet and sews beautifully.
readle and hand crank machines are becoming even more popular as the baby boomers, like me, get into the nostalgia of our past and a simpler time. Singer, which by far, sold the most treadle machines in the U.S.A. and Canada are widely available at the local level at very reasonable prices. The Singer machines themselves are excellent straight stitchers, and unless you are looking for a really old machines that use a shuttle bobbin, then you should look at Singer models using current bobbin systems such as Class 15 ( Singer Model 15 and all variations) and Class 66 (Singer Model 66 and for 3/4 size the Model 99). Try to find a machine with good cosmetics and good decals (decals are a very important factor in the machines value). There are a large variety of models and sub-models with plenty of decal variations.
