Great idea of on the shield’s in will look into those.

The entire top is going to be replaced with curly maple. So just some cutting and glue really. I can do that. The problem lies with figuring out how the treadle works and if all the pieces are there. The ones I did before are electric.
I think that she seems OK with the new parts because the machine is what she wants to be able to use. And I don’t think anyone will really know or care she’s not going to sell it as authentic or really have any plans to sell it.

Spindle Maker, I’m a little in the same predicament. The lady is my friends girlfriend and I do a lot of work for him restoring 1900s era homes for him in the Shreveport area. Mainly windows, doors, and trim. So I will make it up on the backside. I took the job on mainly for the experience. For me it’s a learning experience and I don’t like to charge my normal price if it’s new to me. I know I can fix it, but it’s not my customers fault it will take me longer then it should. I didn’t realize the drawer was missing I just figured it only had two.
I would appreciate any info you have to share. It’s all taken apart so I guess I’m on it for the long haul.

Thanks to all your boys help,
