  1. It's a really pretty cabinet and a lovely machine, looks to be in great condition.
  2. I love the flat top desk cabinet :) the machine itself appears to be a 'Touch and Sew' a model that has lovers and haters amongst vintage machine collectors. It's value is as a second hand sewing mach...
  3. Made or assembled at Singer's Penrith factory in NSW Australia. The serial number will be under the edge of the machine if you tip it back.
  4. Singer 28 Hand crank. 3/4 size Vibrating Shuttle machine. Here is a free manual http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/268_27_28.pdf Here are the serial number lists which you can find the year an...
  5. It's a Singer cover from 1950s to 60s - does it have the machine with it or just the box? Here's one from 1956 in nice condition http://www.mckennalinn.com/for-sale/singer-99-with-handcrank.html On t...
  6. This machine is a Charles Raymond High Arm - White Sewing Machine co bought out Raymond in 1916 and continued to manufacture Raymond models until 1922 when the factory closed http://needlebar.org/nbwi...
  7. New Williams - http://needlebar.org/nbwiki/index.php/Williams http://www.sewmuse.co.uk/american%20sewing%20machine%20manufacturers.htm#w Started off as C W Williams, 1863, in Montreal, and relocated...
  8. Not single J serial numbers, no - J for St Jean. The serial numbers for the St Jean sur Richelieu factory in Quebec commenced with JA in 1924 and went to JE in 1961. There are sites which mention star...
  9. While the majority of 'typical' badged Japanese machines were based on the Singer 15, this one seems to be a copy of the 99 and is probably 3/4 size - a little different to the usual finds.
  10. This Atlas machine is a badged 'Brother Windowmatic' from Brother, Japan. Lovely pink :)
  11. Definitely German - Clemens Muller machine I would say - check under it and on the bobbin winder for CM :) Japanese didn't copy the Singer 27. Not the original base for this machine.
  12. Research values by searching Australian eBay for sold machines. My experience in Australia is that often that type and condition of the cabinet, is what determines the price, rather than what the mach...
  13. Ward Bros certainly did import Vesta/L.O. Dietrich machines. Here is a timeline of Vesta logos that may help you narrow down a year http://needlebar.org/nbwiki/index.php/L_O_Dietrich
  14. G- 8199076 8249075 model 15 from a batch of 50,000 commissioned August 5 1920
  15. the J serial numbers can't be dated from the Singer online records any more. The machine is a model 15 and dates to 1939. Made at St Jean sur Richelieu factory Quebec.
  16. Correct date from your serial number is 1895. The model is 28.
  17. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/19062-singer-21-w-180-industrial-compound-nee http://parts.singerco.com/IPinstManuals/21W.pdf
  18. the serial number is stamped on the raised area, on the flat bed, below the bobbin winder, I can't read it in your photos. The Singer website isn't all that great for checking the model but you can lo...
  19. The machine in the pictures is a model 66-3, it has the rear attaching feet but also has the mount where the motor is now fitted. With the decal pattern usually known as Red Eye. The correct date batc...
  20. The logo is for German maker Durkopp. It's not in excellent condition and looks to have been converted to electric - researching online is difficult because of Durkopp's modern history. http://need...
  21. the machine is a National Expert BT in the later style.
  22. Bell sold several models - some were Messerschmit, some were Adler, and it's believed they made one mode themselves - I can't see the photos clearly enough to tell which model you have. http://needle...
  23. Definitely a Davis machine. I'll have a look for your other photos
  24. No matter what the name is on the machine, it's still a National Top Tension machine. Here is a link to the Paveway manual which is the 3/4 size of the Vindex, but it should get you by for instruction...
  25. Yes it's a National Vindex Top Tension machine. The wording with 'B' at the end could have been 'Harris B', or 'Excelsior B B', or 'Windsor B'? and you're right that name would have been put there by,...
  26. Hi AdaDodd - your machine is also a National if it is the same as this one. Are you able to post a photo?
  27. A Grimme and Natalis 'Original Princess'. It's not possible to give an exact production date. Grimme and Natalis Company formed in 1871 and although this style of machine looks very 'old' they were st...
  28. I found your other post :) it seems to be a New Home Model N
  29. Hi Tracey I found your machine now - it seems to be a New Home - there should be a serial number on or under the front bobbin cover and you can date the machine with this.
  30. The Minnesota C is a Davis model M - Sears used Davis machines exclusively for a short time in the early 20th century - the loss of the Sears market by 1919 is said to have been the cause of the compa...
  31. Pretty cabinet. I have a similar style that has a Standard machine in it. As racer4four said, if you want to know about the machine, you will have to post photos of the machine itself :)
  32. Is it worth restoring - sure if you want to. It's already cosmetically challenged and it's not a terribly rare machine, so if you mean, is it worth restoring to sell for a profit, the answer is probab...
  33. sorry I can't edit that above post, it is a copy and paste from Dave Best's list of American Sewing Machine manufacturers. Look at Foley and Williams. http://www.sewmuse.co.uk/american%20sewing%20mach...
  34. Foley & Williams Manufacturing Co. 1885 – 1924 ?Factory: Cincinnati, Ohio. ?Offices: 149 W. Sixth Street, Cincinnati, Ohio 1891 President: William C. Foley 1902 - 1913 Formerly: H. B. Goodrich...

  36. Nice find. Singer model 15 with Pheasant decals. Where did you find information about the date Tom? What is her serial number? I would expect a machine from 1887 to be a fiddle base.
  37. It appears to be a Singer 327 - on the stitch length surround you may find a model number. It will have a serial number under the machine, stamped into the casting at the bobbin end. 1960's is about r...
  38. I really don't know. A one off machine from America seems unlikely.
  39. Singer 221 aka Featherweight. The 222 is the free-arm version. The 221K was made right through to the 70's but this one is pre-1951. The serial number is stamped into the underside edge at the bobbin ...
  40. http://parts.singerco.com/IPinstManuals/241.pdf
  41. Singer 328, a domestic machine. There will be a serial number underneath the edge. Should be able to date the machine from that.
  42. Centennial is just a name added by the seller - anything that says 'Deluxe Precision' will be post WW2. It could be from 1951 taking advantage of the centennial of Singer perhaps. The same style of ...
  43. You'll see many different sewing machines marked Pinnock - a company started in 1891 and was in operation until 1967. They never made machines, all imported and badged.
  44. Also under the machine it will probably have Light Manufacturing Japan markings. These look like J-A or J-C, the J is actually a J and an L combined which makes it look like a -
  45. Any chance of a clearer picture of the main machine body? It's very nice.
  46. Could be Japanese or another south Asian country. India, China, Malaysia, Taiwan, probably made in the 60's. Usually unmarked except for the brand name also stamped into the rods underneath.
  47. The Graybar is a National Expert BT. Gray & Barton, the telephone and electrical company started by Enos Barton and Elisha Gray in 1869, became Western Electric in 1872 when Western Union bought in ...
  48. an industrial or home manufacturing machine in the style of a Wheeler and Wilson 12. http://www.oocities.org/heartland/plains/3081/ww12-01.jpg. Singer continued the W&W12 as their 12W after they took...
  49. Singer did not make 'badged' machines or supply machines to other companies to add their own names, these Asian machines used the Singer 15 design after the copyright expired
  50. Made in Taiwan - deluxe precision - Asian machine in the style of a Singer 15- produced in the late 40's early 50's. Not possible to date these unless you find a dated receipt or warranty with them
