McLeod 1 B 143

Model for Patent #156,230. Murdock McLeod, October 27, 1874.

Model is a miniature: 1 ¼” wide, 2 ¼” deep, 3 ½” high. Two U-shaped metal sides hold a table top. A treadle is located between the front part of the legs. It is connected to a drive wheel attached to the right side of the frame. A drive band circles the drive wheel then goes through holes in the table top and around a pulley on a bar. The bar is located between two metal uprights. Another bar goes between the tops of these uprights. On the left side of the lower bar is another round piece of wood that rubs against the small wooden pulley on the top bar that makes the spindle at the end turn.
