    My new Singer 27 VS2 Treadle c.1895!

    Well... thank you to everyone who answered my frantic pleas for info on this machine.
    She is now all mine and I'm very excited to own my first treadle, especially one with such a beautiful original cabinet and amazing sphynx decals!
    Here are the "dust & all" pics from my first inspection this afternoon....

    Oooooo, nice machine and cabinet. You did good. That machine makes my 127 look like a door stop.

    Well done!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    My mother had a Singer treadle converted w/motor & lamp that she got in the 1940's when I was a baby. I learned to sew on that machine. Fast forward to 2013: I have a room devoted to notions, supplies, fabrics, 3 sewing machines, 2 sergers, & a TV & radio. Mother did all her operations out of a hatbox and the 5 drawers in the Singer cabinet, and made all my clothes, all hers, and most of Daddy's short-sleeved shirts. Sometimes I think we have too much stuff and not enough practicality. I'm just sayin'

    Check this link for a manual

    http://www.ismacs.net/singer_sewing_...e-manuals.html

    I have the very same machine and cabinet though my cabinet is missing the long drawer cover. The serial number on my machine is 14816344, giving it an allottment date of 1874. What is your machine's serial number?

    You can date your machine here
