Happy Birthday..... again :)
There was an estate sale today across from school. Kevin got there at about 4:30; I was scoring a volleyball game. Our one and only mission was to check out the treadle machine. He had actually done a little research before hand, printing out some information and serial number list so he could narrow down the date.
It's a Model 27-4 according to the book, but what I found, with the decals that are on it, is a Model 127 which replaced the 27 around 1910. It has a Vibrating shuttle. There are about three boxes of stuff in the drawers so we need to go through that and the manual is there also, though not in the best of shape.
So for the bargain price of $22.50, in the cabinet, it came home with us.
Anyway, I just think he's cool. We are considering the name Isaac, for Mr. Singer himself.
I love my husband!!!!
