I know some things about treadle machines, mostly Singer however.  One thing I can tell you is to oil every joint in the treadle mechanism with a machine weight oil (3 in 1).  Also, other areas of the machine need oiling.  I found some videos on YouTube about working with an old Singer machine- how to oil it, thread it, etc.  These might be of some help to you.  I googled Antique Singer Sewing Machine to find the first one.  
Where are you located?  I may be able to help or know someone who can.

I'm new to treadling. One of our friends gave us a treadle sewing maching! (YAY!!!!)  We have been trying to research it but can not find anything on this particular brand.  It is a Sterling Brand and while it is in really rough shape it is a very beautiful piece.  I was wondering if anyone either has one similar or knows anything about it.  we are wanting to restore it to working condition but also not destroy any value the piece might have.
