  1. Bernadette : I am restoring a New Home sewing machine for a customer . I have been looking on the internet for information and a picture of one like it and I have been unable to find out much about it...
  2. Ah , Yes I see it now . Thanks Bernadette .
  3. Bernadette : Thanks I could not read the first number or letter . What is it ? vintage4me : If the machine you saw was in a treadle cabinet and the cabinet was in half decent shape with all the part...
  4. It looks to me to be a machine made in Japan . A copy of a Singer class 15 . They made all sorts of them under many different names in different colors and designs . They are good machines . Look on ...
  5. It is either a 127 or 128 Singer . I do not remember which . I think it has to do with the position of the bobbin winder . If the first number of the serial number is an 8 according to the Singer char...
  6. The picture is so small it is hard for me to see . However it looks like a slide plate from a Singer model 127 or 128 might fit your machine . I do not know about a manual . The top tension is what i...
  7. How neat !
  8. I have one just like it . Nice machine .
  9. Francis : The model # is not all that important . What is important is the shape of the part that goes into the body of the machine . ( The part you took out . ) I may have a tension assembly that wi...
  10. fortapache : I have at least three of them . One was the very first machine I ever bought for myself with my first job out of high school . It is a treadle White . I even made my wedding dress on it b...
  11. You did not get hurt bad at all . Nice machine . It did not start out as an electric machine however . It started out as a treadle . I have several of these machines two of them have been put into a c...
  12. According to the Singer web site your machine was made in 1909 . It started out as a treadle machine . Someone has put it into a case and put a motor on it .
  13. Erikj: An antique guy might be able to appraise it if they see it in person . Also are you sure that you read the Singer charts correctly ? Some people do not understand them . If you give me the seri...
  14. I did some research and I believe your machine is a Singer 201-2 model . The green machine that I restored for my friend was not the same model . Her machine was a 15- 125 . The difference is that on...
  15. I hate to be the one to tell you this but your grandmother's machine is not a Featherweight . A Featherweight machine is a 3/4 size portable machine and has a bed that folds up on the left end . This...
  16. It all depends on the condition of the machine . What condition the decals are in , if the machine has any rust or not . How dirty it is . If it is missing parts , paint . Does the head move smoothly...
  17. Yes I did , It still did not work . My e-mail address is : earthworms@sbcglobal.net
  18. stefdesign : I tried to send you an e-mail at that address and I got a message saying that it was an invalid address .
  19. I realize this is an older post but I have some questions . I just got a vintage Zither or autoharp in great condition from a friend . It is called a Marxophone and has little hammers on the front . ...
  20. Niclole : Very nice find . I have one in a cabinet like yours only mine has the machine with the gold decals and my cabinet needs work . The door on the front of mine will not stay shut and the wood ...
  21. I can not tell you who made it or when , but it is a copy of a class 15 Singer sewing machine . They are very nice machines and built every bit as well as a class 15 Singer . There is a member on here...
  22. Nice find . These are every bit as well made as a class 15 Singer and will last a long time . I have my grandmother's and I love it . It will sew just about anything I throw at it and I love the color...
  23. I have gotten machines in similar condition freed up , and the rust removed and the machines sewing again . It just takes a little time and know how to do it . There is a group on the net with people ...
  24. Pretty decals .
  25. kygurl32 : I forgot to tell you even though the cabinet your machine came in is stamped 1968 , I believe the machine itself was made in the 1930's . Someone could have put it into the newer cabinet fo...
  26. Great find ! These machines are known as a clone of a class 15 machine . I have my grandmother's . They are great little machines and every bit as well made as the Singers or Janomes plus they have d...
  27. It is from a buggy or a sleigh . A seat this fancy would not have been inside of a car .
  28. Industrial machines are not my thing so I can not give you any information on it . Bernadette however may know .
  29. Jennie : Nice machine . I have one just like it . Even though it may have been bought it Germany , your machine was made in Elizabeth New Jersey , USA . According to the Singer chart your machine was...

  31. momof3 : Look on the internet at : shopsew-classic.com , you should be able to find a belt for your machine there at a reasonable price .
  32. antiquesandcollectibles38 : I asked my husband if he remembered where we got our tins . He said one of our tins has been in his family for a very long time and the other one we found at a yard sale ....
  33. I have two of these boxes just alike . I do not know for sure just where we got them . One is not in very good shape but the other one looks about the same shape as yours . We keep them just because w...
  34. moh85 : There should still be some pull on the top string . It should not just pull through without any resistance at all . I would try and dry up some of the oil you put on the disk by running some ...
  35. moh85 : If the thread ( string ) is looping on the underside of the fabric you are sewing on that means that the top tension of your machine is too loose . If it is looping on the top side of the fabr...
  36. davyd286 : I not only had the one that belonged to my great grandmother ( I gave mine to my daughter . ) I have also seen many of them in anitque shops in our area . They also came in gold color . I...
  37. These jewelry boxes are from the 1920's or earlier . I had one that once belonged to my great grandmother . She was born in 1876 . So these have been around for a lot longer than the 1980's !!!
  38. moh85 : I have seen shuttle bobbins like yours on a website called Treadle On . You have to join the group but it is free . People there only use treadle or hand crank machines like yours . Someone th...
  39. Marko : That looks like a very nice machine . I can not tell you much about this machine . However make sure that your needle is in the machine correctly with the flat side at the top of the needle ...
  40. Never mind , I see that the pictures are from Fort George Wright , Washington , 1920 . Lol !!! But the first horse still looks like my beloved Sweet Regardless .
  41. That horse looks like my first horse . She was a registered American Saddle Bred by the name of Sweet Regardless but we called her Brownie . Do you know when or where these photos were taken ? Browni...
  42. A lunch box ?
  43. I use to have one of these only in green . I used it in the winter to cook on and I loved it . Good wood stove . But that is about all I can tell you about it .
  44. Thank you Bernadette for posting the correct information on this machine . Like I said I am still learning about these old Singers . I was not sure about the model on this one . Now I know . kezza sho...
  45. You are very welcome .
  46. Oh I am sorry . I forgot to tell you . If you go to : www.singerco.com/accessories/instructions-manuals , you may be able to find a free download manual for your machine .
  47. All I could find out about your machine is that it was made in 1873 . I am still learing about these old machines although I have been collecting and restoring them for years there are so many model...
  48. Thank you .
  49. trunkman : Thanks can you give me a website where I can look for replacement parts ? I also would have no idea of how to go about restoring it . My grandfather's last name is Boone and he is related ...
