Hello group and Steve.....How do you like your Bradbury A1?  Have you been able to confirm if it uses the dbx1?  I've seen some very short posts on the Bradbury.  My concern would e without the treadle if it is just too unwieldy to use for small patch jobs.  Best regards, Mike

The handcrank is actually the most frequently used method of operation with my Emile James Politype #1 (virtually the same machine)  Unless I am doing decorative stitching, i do not treadle it.  My 3 year old granddaughter loves to help with that part.  Teaching her to NEVER go the other way was a challenge, but the down time resolving snarls provided the "this is why we do not" lesson.
