An introduction to Jonesy - now rehomed.
« on: December 12, 2019, 16:39:51 PM »
I would like to introduce you to Jonesy. He is a Jones Spool machine from 1897 and has recently seen much neglect. I bought him 3 months ago, housed in an equally neglected and abused treadle cabinet. However, they have both been fully dismantled, cleaned, lubricated and loved and are now happily stitching. Not as neatly as my 99 hand crank but then that is 20 years younger. Hopefully, I can now show you some pics......

Oh, he is beautiful!  And that cabinet might well be the nicest I've ever seen.

Fantastic work!   :toast:
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

I thought it rather nice myself, and such fun giving it tlc that there is another the same in my garage, waiting for the white paint to be removed. Grrr!

Each item on its own looks fabulous but the two together look really special.

That is absolutely beautiful. I’ve never seen a treadle in a cabinet like that, so neat.

Well, Jonesy has set off on the next chapter in his life. He is off to live with a young lady in Yorkshire who has promised to look after him and put him to work. Her gran has one the same so he should be well cared for. I now have a gap in my display so I've sifted through my workshop and dug out Jonesy Mk2. Time to get the paint stripper out.
