    It appears from these photos you have 2 industrial machines, a Singer upholstery machine and a cylinder bed of unknown make. Some clearer close ups and a bit more detail, would help a lot, such as any serial numbers or other numbers on the machine - the Singer model number should be on the pillar and the serial number on the bed :)

    Serial #on one is G4194335 big one and the other says 259431 complete simancous dearborn blundering. Dated Feb.21 1897 and has a clutch motor. I have a face book and have about 20 pictures on it if you know are want to look at them. You can find me at Jackie bender bartley

    Hi Jackie,
    Singer G 4194335 is a model 31, one of a batch of 3000 commissioned October 19 1915. The 31 is a high speed lockstitch tailors machine suitable for continuous use, there are several sub-models which are set up for various types of heavy fabric and light leather work. on the front upright of the machine, can you see a little brass plaque with 31-? on it? this would tell us the sub-model.
    I tried to look at your facebook photos but can't see the ones of the machine - perhaps because we are not friends. You are welcome to post them on my fb page:

    I'm not sure if your phone or tablet has changed some of the wording in your post? The Dearborn machine - what else does it say? Dearborn is a brand of industrial sewing machine but I can't tell you any more about the model you have without a closer look :) They seem to be mainly hemming or finishing machines.

    Thanks for adding your photos to my facebook page :) the Singer is a 31-15, a tailoring machine as stated above, the -15 submodel is for garment making, canvas goods. http://parts.singerco.com/IPinstManuals/31K.pdf

    The Dearborn is a blind stitch machine, for hemming. I can't find much about it. Seems to be associated with a company called American Blind Stitch Machine Corporation, and with Singer somehow, but hard to get concrete information. Maybe someone with more knowledge about industrials can help :)

    the part that reads 259431 COMPLETE SIMANCOUS is a Singer table-mounted bobbin winder.
