I found this Willcox & Gibbs earlier on shopgoodwill.com. The write up says some parts missing. I was looking at it and decided I did not know enough about it to bid. In looking at the photos, is there anything missing besides a treadle?

Other than the spool holder, I don't see anything else obvious. As to a base, I'd suspect this was in a case with an electric motor (which is normally attached to the base). So you'd need to either find a motor or a hand crank to put on it. None of what is missing is going to come cheap either, unless you luck into a machine in bad shape that comes with everything.
