Treadle for C&P Old Series 7x11

Hi, Does anyone have any information on the dimensions of a treadle for this press model? Hern Ironworks doesn’t carry this type, but I’m trying to figure out if one of their other treadles would fit. Thank you!

Thanks so much, Mike. I appreciate the info!

Can I ask you two more questions, Mike? Where on the treadle (how far from the rod connection) does the hook connect? Also, how long is the hook?

Thanks again!

An 8” x 12” treadle should fit a 7” x 11” press. I operated one that way for several years. Just make sure the part that attaches to the press will fit in between the sides of the frame.
