I am looking for this very hard to find trave. I'm not so much concerned about matching the bonnet lid and the wood deck as I am the irons and the particular cross brace that singer only used for a very short period of time.

I have a very rare singer head called a high arm familyBut I do not have the treadle that it would have gone with.

Are you willing to pay packing and shipping?  I think I saw a base in an east coast ad recently.  I’ll try to locate the ad if you’re interested.  I do not know the seller, or if they are willing to ship, but it might be worth a try.

I am pretty sure the ad was in facebook marketplace.  I went back and checked, but did not find the base alone.  I did find two ads for machines with base.  Sorry, If I happen across it later I’ll save the post and let you know.

Yes of course I would pay for shipping. And it wouldn't be the 1st time I had bought a complete treadle with machine when I only needed parts of it.

If I had a way to get it picked up and shipped I would go for that now.

Ask the Catwaba Valley Quilters Guild, chances are they'd know someone willing:

If you end up with the machine and don't want the head, I'm interested.   It's the same cabinet and head as my '85 IF.
