1917 Treadle Singer Sewing Machine - An awesome prepper tool

Just got an old near mint 1917 antique Singer Sewing machine with treadle power. The thing is fully complete, including an old belt in the drawer. I also found some old accessories, which I cannot identify, but are brand new looking and well oiled. The old treadle machines make great survival tools. Not only are they good for off grid sewing, but they can be used to power other tools as well. Any rotary tool can be powered with a treadle machine. You can run a grinder, table saw, polisher and more with the treadle part of the machine. I would never modify the original Singer machine, but rather run a separate belt to power tools on another table sitting next to it. These old machines are hard to find in such good condition and this is a true gem, I think.
