I dug up a sewing machine today at an old homesite. Definitely a first for me. I have found the neatest stuff since I started digging the big iron signals! I haven’t researched it yet but the homesite site is circa 1900. If anyone can ID it, that would be awesome!

nice find and nice pun, had me in stitches
 

Hard to say which manufacturer made that, but I absolutely agree with around 1900 or a bit each way. My grandmother (born in 1903) had a Singer given to her by her mother who'd used it for years.

Definitely a first for me also seeing this..It’s a great recovery Congratulations
 

Man, those aren't light. Hope you were close to your vehicle. I think it's a New Home brand vibrating shuttle treadle sewing machine. The decal on the bed is still somewhat legible.
 

That can probably be restored if cleaned up properly, or sell it after cleaning to an Antique store.
 

That is cool indeed,very much so.Imagine the history behind that thing.How many sets of clothes were turned out by the user!!!!!Cool bit of verbal skullduggery too!
