    Hello everybody.

    I've found this very old industrial singer sewing machine in my beloved great-granddad's house and would really like to know which model it is. My great-granddad has spent his entire life in Salzburg, Austria, working as upholsterer and serving bravely in WW1.

    I would be very grateful if you could help me solve this mystery.

    Thanks and best regards,
    Nadja

      Hello freon,

      Thank you very much for your comment. It's really though finding information about such an old machine.

      1871 and I fear that is all there is. Puts it at the first year of Singers.

      Looking for some information I found that it could be Singer model 7 series. Look like Singer 7-33 or 7-34. Look for more information in this series. I'm restoring one myself the Singer 81-5 from 1925. I will post my sew machine when is finish. Hope you get more information

      Hello,

      Thank you very much for your comments. I've been looking at Singer 7-33 as well as 7-34 and even though they have a lot in common there is one big difference which I have not yet noticed on any other sewing machine. I'm talking about the shape of the covering plate which can be seen in the second picture - all other models have a round covering plate except for this one. Identifying such an old heirloom is really tougher than I thought.

      It is a model 7. The serial number with 7 digits dates to 1889. The 7 was built in many configurations for many different applications. http://needlebar.org/cm/displayimage.php?album=643&pid=3420#top_display_media
