    My 15-91 is a treadle machine. It is a straight stitch machine. They also made them as handcranks machines and as electric machines. I love the stitch on mine. It is a great machine.

    Here is a link to a review of the machine...

    The machine is a 15-91, and the AH # is the serial number.
    Singer has a site where you can check to see when then machine # was alloted. I don't have the address, but can google it. Check Singer sewing machine serial numbers, or something like that. :)

    I do believe that the 91 is one that everybody likes around here. It is a sleek looking machine.

    If any of you live near Roanoke VA I have a coworker that is selling one for 75.00. That's just too far for me to drive to pick it up.

    The 15-90 is the model 15 that is able to be handcranked or treadled, it's a belt driven machine.

    The 15-91 has a "potted motor" and is gear driven. One of my favorite machines!! You can drop the feed dogs, it has an eight inch harp/throat space, and it's a powerful workhorse!
