I hope so! I'm enjoying the whole process even more than I thought I would!

Oh, on a semi related note - when you modified the treadle on your Tacsew, did you flip over the bracket on the foot pedal itself so that the rod connects to the pedal on the other side?
Yes. The bracket for the pitman arm, on my treadle, can be located on either side ... I just removed it and mounted it on the left.

The real deal here though is to put a smaller pulley on the motor -- *that* made the biggest difference!
