    I am a member of Treadleon, another member told me what he thought was the approximate date of the machine that he had repainted. He told me that the decals were totally gone and he was experimenting with the color and water slide decals.
    I thought it was so cute that I bought it.

    Nancy,
    I am sorry to hear that your Balto has passed away. I know you miss him terribly. Dixie,my 16 year old, lab/pitbull mix passed away last April, I feel your pain. I miss her whole face kisses and
    singing when I would come home from being out.
    Hugs,
    Sharon W.

    It is cute. Don't think I've seen this type repainted. I would be smiling as I sewed on this one. :-D

    I have not been in the shop for a few days. My little blue chihuahua, Balto, died Saturday. We were not prepared for that -- he was such a sweet little guy and up until Friday he seemed so healthy! It is hard when you love them so much.
    Gosh, Nancy, I'm sorry about Balto. Been there too.

    My 127 is # Go382989. That 2nd digit, is a slightly smaller 'o' than the numbers. I'm guessing it's a GO... from Scotland. Records lost or unavailable. Oh, and I did look up the G's just in case that 2nd digit was a zero. The singer number list identified that number as an 18 (industrial with the big chrome squareish work surface) from 1911. Okay, so it's NOT that. Not even close.

    Regarding that ejector button question: There is a little hatched press button to eject the bobbin holder thing out of the bullet arm. I have been calling that a 'bobbin ejector' but chances are, I'm wrong and it has some really fancy Singer name that Billy and you can tell me. LOL!

    This machine has the totally flat face plate with scroll leaves, Sphinx decals, VS2 style bobbin arm swings and two long rectangle cover plates plus a little circular plate over the feed dogs, the trapazoid front acess plate, says The Singer Manufacturing Co. on the top. The casting itself is from the 'B' mold. Bobbin winder up high, spoke chrome wheel, with the decals on the black bobbin winder/belt cover. The motor is a bolt on "Safety" brand, not a Singer motor (and not that really cool chrome retro vented motor we saw a couple pages back! rats). This is the 2nd of the two 127s I have, and this one is not working at the moment.

    Sorry I don't have a picture of it at the moment...

    I've sewn with it a few times, I think it needs more oiling and cleaning. Its noisy and doesn't sew very well. I got to sew with one that is well oiled and adjusted, sewed wonderfully.

    Is there a website to go to to cross check the serial numbers on the machine? The shop I got it from said 1954, but I just wonder if that's correct.

    Nancy, my heart goes out to you too. I recall the pain, 23 years ago, as my husband and I helplessly held our doxie as she drew her last breath. I had taken her on a volks march earlier in the day, and ended up carrying her most of the way. We still cry. May your grief be brief.

    Hi purplefiend, Love your little machine. it looks similar to mine (except for the beautiful paint job!!! ) I did research on the Smithsonian site and got information on the company. And I called the 800 no. for New Home/Janome.
    Talked with a lady who asked where the machine was made and as far as I can tell, it was made in Orange, Mass.
    Which she said placed it at the year 1882. That seems awfully early to me, but the previous owner got the machine from her mother, and that date would have been in the ballpark of her younger years.
    Anyway I am having fun cleaning it up and hope to have a good picture of the end result soon. I will attempt to send a picture or two today, but cant promise any thing.
