My husband is not a junker! But he was at this guy's house and saw an old Singer in the junk pile. He told the guy to not pitch it until he spoke with me. We went today and picked the poor thing up. I figure if people can take old rust buckets and make them into shiny vintage cars, we can do this, too. From the S/N (G7462571) it appears to be a model 15, made around September 1919. He won't bring it into the house until he is sure that all the vermin are out of it. I started printing Lostn51's instructions for taking it apart, but ran out of ink. I will take pictures of the before. I sure hope we can do this!
