Shown is Singer early 28 bentwood case from 1895 or before, based mount hinges. On base bottom, three cast iron extending feet, are inset. The inlets are old looking, so assuming original. There are detents on feet, snap in, and out nicely. The feet are sharp, with no signs of wear.

I wonder if they were mounts, when used in treadle table? The base is drilled for belt. I have never seen picture of receivers in table, that might match legs.

Yes, this is for the "convertable" treadle/handcrank system.  This is only the second one I have seen.

Been thinking about making second top for table below. I have rough 27 top. I am wondering about receiver, supports, and top filler board latch. I have Singer 99, 301 combination table, but think design much different.

Silly me discovered right treadle iron conflicts with setting 28 base in top. Base has to set on top.
I discovered cover latch receptacle is correct size for extending feet receivers. Plan to make alternate top, mount three receivers.
