    She needs a few parts going to get her cleaned tomorrow. 1916 I think, can't find a model number. Her serial number is G6825965. She came with oddles of feet and stuff and a wonderful wooden fold up box. I think the box was from another machine. Now if I only knew what all those feet are for and if one of them is for normal sewing!

    Oh this is beautiful! Love the cabinet. My daughter got me a machine 1903, but doesn't have a cabinet. Lucky you!

    Wonderful oldie! Congratulations on your purchase.
    Check out "Singer Puzzle Box" & you'll see just how much they sell for - quite coveted among Singer collectors!
    You can get a free downloaded manual from Singer web site (Singersewing machines.com) that should explain how the accessory attachments are used - some were very elaborate from the day when 1) most people sewed their own clothes, curtains, bedding, etc. and 2) sewing machines did not have built-in attachments.
    When Mom was young, she used every one of those attachments!
