A rusted sewing machine, mystery steampunk project and playing with my typewriter

Found some neat stuff at yardsales yesterday. Among them yet another Singer 127 sewing machine on a treadle base for next to nothing. Problem is, it's in absolutely rotten shape. Everything's rusted, including the treadle base. However, it does have some parts on it that I can use to repair this 128 I have hanging around. Perhaps the left over parts could be used for art part of my mystery project? What do you think? Do manual sewing machines seem steampunkish to you?

I also found these nifty tags.

Of course, this means that I had to play with my typewriter. But I don't need much excuse for that.
