Baking and Eldredge Two Spool

I just finished baking the Amish Friendship bread. It is so weird that something out of a bag, and kept with no refrigeration whatsoever can taste so good. I do wonder about the amount of sugar and how Amish this really is… It’s almost 1am, so I am too tired to take pictures. The day before I almost did not sleep because my hubby and I were cleaning up… my Eldredge Two Spool! I almost had a heart attack when I saw that the seller packed the upper portion of the treadle, meaning the entire wood portion, with the machine inside! He claims he did not know how to remove the machine, despite all of the emails we shared when I stressed the importance of proper packing. Unfortunately a piece of cast iron from the base broke, but considering how bad the packing job was I am just happy to have the machine at all.

Overall the machine is in great shape, but the presser foot is missing.

I have a lot of cleaning and a lot of love to give this machine before it’s in working condition, but I know it’s well worth the effort!
The canister. It had a lot of surface rust, but nothing too bad.

  1. I live near Amish country and the Amish are notorious for their love of sweets. Everything has sugar in it. One of the biggest health problems is dental care. So if the bread had lots of sugar it is more authentic.

  2. Have you found a manual for your Two Spool yet?
