    I love the old iron and wood machines. They're solid and reliable.

    Thank you so much for your quick reply!! This one has decals that are in pristine condition. I see it was allotted in 1910!! Someone treated it with care or just didn't use it.
    Once again thank you Joe.

    Joe,sorry to bother you but I have looked to find the manual for this machine and can't seem to get one. This machine doesn't have a bobbin but I think it is called a shuttle?? I am looking for information on how to thread and use the shuttle plus where would I be able to buy more shuttles?
    Thank you.

    You might have the SN wrong. That one was put onto a 31, which doesn't have a shuttle. If it's definitely right, post a picture. Without it none of us can see the machine or its decals.

    Oh, and if it has a shuttle it's probably a 27 or 28. Singer have both of these models in their free manual downloads.

    It is a 127 made in 1915 in St. Johns. You have to be careful of the 7 digit number. You have to look farther down on the listing.

    Yes the leading zero is important to mention. Manual for 127 is here

    Also important to note it DOES have bobbins.... and a shuttle. the bobbins are long and weird looking but a bobbin none the less.

    Thank you so much for your help. I will see if I can get close up photos of this machine. To me it looks to be in pristine shape for its age.
    Thank you for the web sites!
