A Wilson and Wheeler W9 Treadle Machine for $23.00

Mister located a treadle for sale on Craig's List and we were off to check it out.  It turned out to be an 1895 Wilson and Wheeler W9 manufactured in Bridgeport, CT.  What a great find by Mister and the treadle soon found it's way into our car for the wonderful price of $23.00.  Yep, all the parts are there, even the missing decor for the drawer fronts.  It will take some work by Mister to get her shiny and pretty again, but everything moves and she runs.  I cannot tell you how excited I am.  What a fun thing to have.

As soon as we get her home, Mister gets the shop vac out and starts the cleaning process so that the photos can be shot in order to have a good record of everything.  Here are the pics and I will show the finished ones when it is all finished (probably several months worth of work).  Enjoy.

Yep, that's me working away.  Silly Mister.
