Below are prices of several treadle lathes I had seen over the years.
Some of the pics aren't the best quality due to the camera and lighting back then.
But these will at least give you an idea of some of variety of these
As always, to see a full sized image just click on it.

This is a treadle lathe that is at the Jacobsburg Historical Society,
home of the Henry Gun Works.


This one is at Old Mill Village in New Milford PA

This is an interesting one for the inventive types.  This is an old treadle sewing machine
base that was converted into a lathe.  The headstock looks to have been from an early
metal lathe.  It works too!
