Yep, I've got three treadle machines of various vintages, and a couple of hand crank machines. You can actually buy new hand crank machines, but the quality is better on the old ones. My one concession to electric machines is the Singer Featherweight. I've collected a few of those through the years. They are an absolute joy to use.
