GO TO MY FEATHERWEIGHTS PAGE AND CHECK OUT MY NEWEST FEATHERWEIGHT PAINT JOB
I can't pass this up to put on my machines for sale page, it is too nice.
I recently acquired this very nice FREE brand treadle made in Chicago, Ill. I used to have one of these in my museum before i sold the museum as i beliieve it to be the smoothist running treadle of them all due to the fact it runs on ball bearings when all the others i know of had metal, nuckle joints. I have cleaned it, polished the shiny parts, and test sewed with it. It has a box of accesssories also. Soo, here it is!!! Oh, I'm only asking $125.00, as i am out of room. I sold the other one for $300.00
It turns out that there were 130 parts machines from the 1800's to the 2000's and no one took advantage of my offer to sell for only $300.00. Well 7/6/22 the junk man picked them all up and hauled them away. You folks just lost out on thousands of dollars in Ebay sellable machines and parts. There is still other stuff for sale but not for long.
I have added a new page to the site, it is for machines for sale that are not featherweights check it out, and there are more to come so come back often.
Here is a new surprise for everyone, it is up for grabs @ $150.00
2 stage light. The original light can be used as a night light, the upper light for a desk lamp. enjoy. jj and yes it is a real featherweight it just doesn't work anymore except as a lamp.
Class outline can be found on this web page under lectures and workshops.e now have 2 featherweight classes set up for the fall in 2 different locations. Here they are:
I am again opening up the featherweight maintenance classes at our shop. I can hold classes for 1 to 6 persons at a time. Call 352-867-8035 for booking appointment. Class fee $50.00 per person.
