    Is this right?

    I've been looking for a vintage machine that I can use for FMQing and I came upon this one. It is described as a Singer 319W, but the other ones I looked up didn't look at all like this and there is no mention of the green and black color. If it is a 319W can it be used for FMQing? I am a novice with vintage machines and the description left a lot to be desired!

    find the serial number on the machine (possibly on the bottom) then visit the singer site- you can enter the serial number and find out exactly what it is, the year it was made and download a manual for it.

    This is posted for sale and the serial number isn't visible. I would hate to buy it and find out it wasn't what I thought and won't work for what I hope to use it for. This was the only picture posted.

    It doesn't appear to have a foot pedal or power cord, so I may be buying a "decorative" machine for my sewing room, but I am going after it....fell in love with the unique coloring! I have to stop browsing!

    I have a 319w Singer in my collection in both all black and in all green. In fact, the black one was my first vintage machine and the reason I fell in love with vintage Singers....be aware if you do sew with it, it takes a 206 needle that you can order on line....It is a wonderful machine!

    Can you drop the feed dogs on the 319w? Not that it matters now, because I want it either way, but maybe I could just cover them if they can't be dropped. I am sure I will be looking at online sources for pieces and parts since it comes "naked". Thanks for the tip about the needles.
