2. Imported leather treadle sewing machine belt with clip, comes in one size, fit to your machine. Belt is 3/16 inch in diameter and 72 inches long. Includes a page of instructions I wrote with tips and clear illustrations showing how to install. Leather belts are like leather shoes, they stretch and weaken over the years so start with a new belt. When a belt starts slipping it has stretched, it needs to be shortened to be snug again but not too tight or it makes it harder to treadle. Belt may not look like the photo, every order of belts I receive varies, depends on what the distributor gets, they tell me they don't have control.
3. Two red spool pin felts for your machine, start fresh, they get dirty and compressed over the years. Red was the standard color for the vintage machines.
4. Oiler with high quality clear sewing machine oil, oiler has a thin brass tube and cap that screws in place. Tube end dispenses a drop at a time and is thin enough to get into tight spots. Oiler can be refilled, always use clear good quality sewing machine oil.
5. The double end lint brush is used to flick out lint and dust from machine before you oil it. The round brush end works well to clean lint from the feed dog.
6. For fun you get an official “Treadle Lady Driver License.” For years I have said, "Treadles are like classic cars, take them for a Sunday drive." Yes, I drive my treadles! The proof is on YouTube. Oh, what a girl can do with a goofy idea, iMovie and her MacBook.
Other photos of my nicknamed machines are, Twiggy my 1917 White Rotary, photo of 4 from 1886 to 1930s are Grizelda the Black Widow, Her Majesty, Bertha and Davis. The last photo is a Singer 216G made in Germany from about 1958 to 1960 and looks like a military uniform so he was nicknamed G.I. Elvis! Elvis was in Germany in the Army during that time.
