Not a scrubber. Not a jaccard. Not a zester. Not a garlic press. Not a juicer. GB is closer than anybody, sorta.

What you have is a bobbin case and a bobbin from an old treadle sewing machine. I have several of these machines, which work perfectly.

LOL We had a treadle sewing machine for years and I loved using it. I used my regular machine to make clothes, but it was fun using the treadle.

Give us a good one Katie!
