    This Easter my mother gave my daughter a National Vindex Special treadle sewing machine that originally belonged to my grandmother. I am trying to locate a manual for it and I was hoping that one of the members could point me in the right direction. I am also trying to find some staples for the belt. As a child I spent a lot of time on the floor working that treadle. Mode if this is in the wrong sub forum please move it.

    Here is a vendor who sells belts for vintage treadle machines. He can likely help you. My wife has ordered from him and got good service.

    A quick Google search found lots of stuff about that company. There is a magazine and other cool information.

    I called these guys about my leather sewing machine and the gentleman has been in the business for over 50 years and is very knowledgeable. If he doesn't know the answer to your question, I would be very surprised
