Restoration complete 🧵

Grandma’s old Singer treadle sewing machine is done ? The wood is reoiled, the cast iron repainted and the sewing machine cleaned and oiled. Now to replace the leather drive band and waiting for bobbins to arrive. Have discovered it was made in 1910 – it’s a 66 model and there were 50,000 of them made! ?? #singertreadle #restoration #restore #repair #reuse #mend #history #singerhistory #repaired #vintagesewingmachine #summerprojects #sanding #woodoiling

Restoring the Singer treadle machine

Brunswick, Victoria,

Another summer project. This is my grandma’s old Singer treadle. She used it as a plant stand in the later years of her life so the top is rather damaged and there is rust on the cast iron legs. Lots of sanding and scrubbing to come! ?? #singertreadle #restoration #restore #repair #reuse #mend #vintagesewingmachine #summerprojects
