I got this machine to replace an electric one. It works great and sewing is much easier and way more fun with a Treadle Sewing Machine. Cabinet is very solid and in a beautiful finish and the machine has lots of options and a great (very helpful and easy to understand) instruction manual.

I have this machine and I love it. I have had it for several years. It is an excellent quality high performance machine, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who lives off-grid, or just wants an excellent machine. I love sewing, and use it to make clothes for the family and myself. Quilting and making things for the home I enjoy doing too.

I dropped this Janome head into an existing antique Singer treadle cabinet I own and have been sewing ALOT with it for about 5 weeks. It performs beautifully! I have purposely used all the attachments and different stitches and it works as well as my electric machine. It does take about 10 hours to break in the machine and becomes easier to treadle. It's better to keep the belt on the looser side rather than tightly stretched. My belt was at first almost too tight so I left it opened and under tension for the first week and it cleared up the problem. This is a very solid machine that does it all. I am thrilled to death to own and use it and highly recomend it to anyone wanting a treadle machine.
