One of the more common "help" calls on Treadle On is from new White owners who can't get their machine to stitch because they are trying to make it turn the same direction as a Singer.

White owned their own forests and operated their own cabinet factories, rather than contracting this out.

He was a bit of a wastrel, and was in serious danger of losing the family fortune.

While traveling in America, he noticed a White sewing machine.

These were introduced in 1928 and were all electrics.

You can substitute an earlier FR handwheel and put them in a treadle.

FR serial numbers were used on badge machines as well as those labeled "White".
