    Look @ this Beauty 1910 SINGER Treadle

    She is a Singer Treadle 1910, her serial # is G6012478, which dates her to 1910. I know i need to call Singer to get more info. Her body appears to be in great shape and the decals look gorgeous as does her treadle table~she is non working. I do need to get more photos of the top closed so I can actually see the top, and to make sure she is secure when she closes and doesn't fall out of her hinges.The seller is asking $125 OBO and she is 3 hours south of me, so I would have to commit to buy before I decided to drive my truck down to pick her up (it would cost $60 just to drive there and back to get her).Advice, comments, info on the machine, cost suggestions would be greatly appreciated.I know I have gone crazy with these vintage sewing machines but I can't stop, it is such an addictionIm not worried that she doesn't work DH got my New Home running like new so I know we could restore her. My only problem is where in the heck am I going to put her?? Name:  400366_150579728393746_100003251588015_185087_2100176988_n.jpg

    It's nice Kay...a model 66 "Redeye" or "Redhead" decals. Looks like backclamp attachments, they can be spendy, but not impossible to find. Cabinet is really pretty!

    As for where to put her? I told the spousal unit that if he would just get rid of his recliner and entertainment center, I could fit at least 4 more machines in the living room!
    We live in a 2 bedroom...I was telling Whigrose earlier that I have two cabinet machines in my bedroom, two cabinet machines in my sewing/spare bedroom, my dining room is lined with 6 cabinets, and one in my living room...the portables live where ever they get set down at! I have one more cabinet coming from the guy that does my SERIOUS refinishing stuff for my Redeye, and that will be it for cabinets...
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    You know how the attachments (presser feet) go on your featherweight? Those are "side clamp" attachments. The attachments for this machine clamp in the back instead of on the side. I can't think of another machine other than this particular model that are backclamps... (doesn't mean there aren't any, just that I can't think of one..Wheeler & Wilson machines are a backclamp of sorts, but not the same)

    I told you that Vintage machines are addicting. Remember? I am sure you will find a place for her if you buy her. You might ask the seller if the machine comes with attachments and if all her parts are there such as bobbin plates, etc. It does look as if she needs a belt. I think you should ask the seller for more closeup photos to help you make your decision.

    Caroline, I will ask her for close ups of the machine. She posted that she has another 66 I date her to 1911 that her mother motorized in the 60's. I asked her for photos of that one as well. Sounds like this one is a table top.


    Thanks again Charlee and Caroline for all your assistance. It is definitely fun to date these machines and read their history.

    Here is a message she posted about the 2nd 66 she has that her mother motorized. Not sure what she is tailing about when she mentions a $100 junk box. She describes the decals on the machine, does this mean anything?

    Ok I have to go looking I believe I have one of those $100 wooden boxes with "junk" in it. Also I have another singer. My mom back in the 60's had it motorized the # on it is G9852752. It has gold decoration on it with Egyptian Pharow head and wings and a lion body.
