    Anyone know what model this Singer is?

    This Singer is for sale on my local Craigslist for $100. It looks like it's missing the bobbin and bobbin plate. Other than that it looks in pretty good shape. The people selling it said it belonged to the hubby's mom. The wife is a garment sewer and no one in the family wants it. She said she'd look for the 2 missing items but doesn't know if it sews. I'm going to look at it tomorrow but would like to know what model it is so if she doesn't find the missing pieces I can see how hard they are to replace and how much to counter offer...thanks for any help you can give...

    It looks like a 28 to me, but I am new to these vintage machines so you may want to wait for someone more knowledgeable to verify.

    Thanks Clare. I went online and from the pics I see it looks to be a 28K which is 3/4 size correct? I've emailed the lady and asked for the serial number so I can look it up. I want to find out how hard it will be to find the missing bobbin and plate cover...

    Is there anything else I should be on the lookout for making this a good deal or not???

    She just sent me the serial number. Looks like it was manufactured in 1898...

    Pretty machine. The shuttles, bobbins and slide plates come up on ebay fairly frequently (we snagged a slide plate for one of ours a little bit ago.) At $100 in that condition I'd say it was a very good deal but expect to pay another $10 each for the things that are missing if you're not willing to sit and wait (which pretty much describes me

    Thanks for the feedback pinkcastledh. She sent me another pic and it looks like there is a bobbin with it. We have a repair shop here in town that carries almost everything under the sun. I'm thinking I may be able to find a plate there...hopefully. Listen to me! It sounds like I already own the thing! We'll see tomorrow!

    Good luck! Our local repair guy said that he can get them but that they'd be quicker to get off ebay and probably less expensive. They're a little shorter than the ones for the 27/127 but otherwise those will fit if you just need something that will cover the opening. Also be sure to check in the cubbyhole under the hand crank and in the recess beneath the machine. One of our machines was sold as not having the plate but it was under the machine all the time
