    I recently picked up this Singer 99K. It is in a Bentwood case. The machine came with a hand crank and 3/4 treadle.
    The machine and base drop in to the treadle and is held securely by four cast metal brackets. The bas has two holes to accept the treadle belt.
    So far I am not finding much information about this configuration online.
    I do know from the serial number that the machine had a slated proiduction date of 1913. The woman I purchased the machine from brought it to Canada from England. She purchased the machine from a family friend and the machine had been stored in a barn.
    I have cleaned and oiled the sewing machine, which turns like hot butter on corn and I restained the wood table top. The leg irons were washed and left as they are. I'm not big on full up restorations because I like the history to show through.

      I agree with you on restorations. I like to see the age.

      Lovely combination treadle/hand crank, they aren't easy to find. I agree too on the restoration - the table came up beautifully.
