    I'm hoping this pdf will upload okay.
    I've seen a lot of people on here get all excited about finding a "Featherweight" only to find out they actually have a 66 or 99 or 15 - not that there's anything wrong with those machines - they are all great but they fershure aren't Featherweights.
    So I worked this up and hopefully it will help people recognize some of the various machines. I don't have a 201 or a few of the other desirable machines so didn't include them.
    Print this out and take it with you when you are out looking at old machines!

    ps, if you use tabbed Internet Explorer or Firefox, you can right click on the word "download" and then "open in new tab" to see the pdf file.

    Thank-you so much for the wonderful reference guide. Not only are they great pictures but you've also described their main features. That's a beautiful collection you have.

    OOOH I have a 301. It was my mother's. I haven't gotten it out of the closet in years. But I used to sew on it all the time through the 70's.
    Someday I want a handcrank machine too.
    And a treadle too if I ever live in a house again instead of a small apartment and have enough room.
    I'm envious of your collection.
    Thanks for the pics.

    I might some day. I remember how nicely it sewed. I even used to know how to use the cams. But I'd feel guilty for not using my current expensive machine that I just had to have...lol.

    Very beautiful old machines. I have a Singer 328K with the fashion discs for fancy stitches and it still works and uses regular Singer needles. I got it in November 1963.
