Bernina 117 Vintage Sewing Machine in Treadle Stand

This fine Swiss sewing machine is extra heavy-duty, though she doesn't have the industrial tension assembly like the 117k so she may not like some of the heavier threads.

She uses 287 industrial needles (Ten- new, size 16 needles included), and she comes with the original user manual.

She sews straight-stitch and zigzag plus, with the built-in fancy stitch, she sews a nice ball stitch.

Fresh off the restoration bench, she spins so freely that we decided to put her in a treadle stand for smooth, quiet sewing.

While we were at it we cleaned and oiled the treadle works, and painted the stand in a subtle, blended two-tone. Then we made a top for it with a generous work surface, longer and a few inches wider (24"x36") for your larger projects.

And, to keep things simple, we'll pay for the shipping to the lower 48 states of the US, via Greyhound freight to your closest Greyhound depot.

She'll come in 3 packages, the stand, the top, and the machine. Some simple reassembly will be required, four screws into the pre-drilled holes in the top, and two screws into each of the pre-drilled holes for the mounting hinges.
