Thank you both for your input.

It’s not about the value for her it’s a keep sake. I told her she would never recoop the cost. For me it is the challenge so I probably wouldn’t charge her too much. The wood refurbishment isn’t the challenge as much as the treadle parts.

I hear you on the motivation and expense. The motivation is there and the cost I told her around $300. After looking at the piece a bit longer and getting you all opinions I think it might be a bit higher cost. I’ll have to have another discussion with her. The folding top part isn’t original and there are other pieces that have been replaced. There is a lot of parts that either have been or need to be replaced, either unrepairable or not original.

From the last one. I hear ya on the clamps.
