Just saw a Franklin hand crank for sale. Had one in a treadle cabinet, but didn't know that they made hand cranks. Interested in adding to my collection. Anyone have any information on them? Haven't been able to find anything so far. TIA

I think around 1900-1920. I need to go to some more looking.
