    You are right. I had the numbers all confused I suppose. It is a 15. Thank you.

    The 99K isn't a featherweight is it?

    From what I found AK Model would be a 247 model
    Don't know. I cut it from the PDF file using AK469484 to find the range which shows that number assigned to a 99. The 257's range was 467726 - 467750 showing only 2 assigned.

    Lordy no!! :lol: The Featherweight weighs 11.2 pounds... I don't know about anyone else's, but my 99 weighs a TON!

    The easiest way to distinguish a featherweight for me is if the extended bed of the machine folds up, and nearly touches the top of the machine. (The really short bed that folds up is another model)

    O, ok. I haven't seen these. They are at my parents house. They are telling me over the phone. LOL

    Does anyone know anything about either of these machines? Would love to hear. Thanks for your help so far. They have another one but it's also in a cabinet and it was my stepdad's great grandmother's or grandmothers-he's 66! So, I can't wait to look up about it. :)

    A treadle is a sewing machine that's mounted in a cabinet with a foot pedal that you manually pump.

    I'll try to find a photo. Here is a photo of my treadle. It is a model 27. If you need help indentifying the model of machine you have, you can use this website (http://www.sandman-collectibles.com/...achines.htm#14) to help you figure it out.
