    New Girl At My House

    Here is my latest Goodwill find. I was interested in her mainly for the wood treadle base which I had never seen before. She was born in July 1941. She is missing a few parts on the treadle mechanism but I have a doner treadle base to rob for parts. The cabinet has seen a lot of use but I have seen and have worse. I ended up paying a little over $30 after some serious last second bidding.

    Dear Carolina,

    Thanks for the pics. I too have been bitten by the vintage bug and love that cabinet. It should refinish very nicely. What model Singer is that?

    My Goodwill doesn't carry fabrics or machines. Love your new find. Very different base- don't think I've seen a stand like this before.

    Looks like it will turn out to be a nice machine all the way around when you're done with it.

    Beautiful! I have that exact same cabinet with a 15-96 with RAF decals. I wish I only paid $30 though you lucky duck!

    According to the ISMACS site, she is a model 15 born on 17 July 1941. I sure would like to find more information on the unusual cabinet.

    That is a straight leg treadle base, which bases began to be manufactured in late 30's through the 1950's and even into early 60's. The metal for the legs changed over time, but the design remained basically the same.
