FOR SALE

A Famous Buttonhole Worker that is for some unknown machine but most likely to be a National Rotary or National Two-Spool. I have posted numerous photos of the set:

Examine the photos and proceed as per your best judgement as to whether this meets your desire, as I do not want to have it returned. NO Returns. :-)

BTW, this unit is not the same as the Famous "C" that fits my Singer 66 - this crank arm is shorter.

This can be yours, all as shown, for $20 which includes shipping in the USA contiguous 48 states.

Up For Adoption: Eldridge Improved Rotary #8 Treadle

This is a perfectly good treadle machine. Very nice in fact. Every time I've thought it's the next machine in line to be worked on, though, I've found another machine had jumped in front of it. Or, did the Eldridge duck further back in line?
Having studied this phenomenon for awhile now, I'm pretty sure it IS ducking and wants someone else to bring it back to life.
If you're that person, shoot me an email at kjohnsonark1@mac.com for more info/photos.
PS: Can't ship but will happily work with a pony express or it's here in Jersey for pick up.

I have a very old treadle sewing machine Stamped "James Willcox Philadelphia"

on inside bottom rung of both legs of the stand.
"Patented June 1, 1858" on outside bottom rung of both legs.
"Patented Dec 15 1857" on the outside of the large wheel.
Has original coffin lid. Drawer is missing, Also missing is the rubber band.
(Ed note - I think she means the treadle belt, these are usually leather)
Plate is a bit rusted so not possible to read. This is the design of an original Willcox and Gibbs machine but it has only the signature floral design and no name on the machine itself plus no W & G medallion.



It is clearly a Willcox and Gibbs-style but without that signature.
I could not figure out how to search the US Patent Office to find a Willcox patent, but perhaps someone else could figure it out. I believe this may be an original model before Willcox and Gibbs started manufacturing in 1858, in which case it is a collector's item. I am happy to take more photos if that would be helpful.

I am asking $400 or best offer and am near Boston.

I don't think it could be easily shipped.
