Threaded View
I acquired a "new" treadle on Friday - a Davis Vertical Feed.  The patent
date on the front of the tension knob is Sept 1916.  Don't know exactly when
it was made but according to internet sources the Davis factory switched
from sewing machines to making Huffy bikes in 1924 so it was somewhere in
that 8 year range.  I was amazed to find that it has a 2 piece foot that
walks (no feed dogs!) and a button to hold in to sew in reverse!  It makes a
beautiful stitch and I love treadling.

Those are so neat!  I've seen pix, but never got my toes on one.  Not
sure they made it over here!  :)

I love treadles!  Don't have one anymore, though---sigh.
