Household Model 5-1/2 Treadle machine

c. 1882. Machine is in a six-drawer cabinet. Machine cabinet/table all in excellent condition. I obtained an original Household coffin-top from Wolfegangs Collectibles that is included. The machine has been completely cleaned, serviced and adjusted, with a new belt, and it is in excellent working condition. It has its original bobbin winder.

Also included are three shuttles, and 24 needles (in two sizes), and an original manual.

More information can be provided via private e-mails to

Asking $250.00 (approximately what I have spent on it). Buyer must pay for shipping by method of their choice. Will consider reasonable offers.

Shipping is tricky...if it can be picked up, that would be best, or buyer arrange a pony express. Location is Sebastopol, California (about 50 miles north of San Francisco).

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.
