    Pretty cabinet and machine! The decals on the machine is Tiffany or Gingerbread.
    The machine is a Singer 15-30, beautiful machine & OMG the parlor cabinet is to die for!
    I have that same cabinet but mine is really dark and I don't like it but I do like the one in the ad. I wonder if it's possible to lighten a darkened cabinet by removing the shellac/varnish.
    Numerous cabinets seem to have the dark varnish/shellac on them. I too wonder if removing the shellac/varnish would make a big difference. I sanded one of my cabinets down and just used tung oil on it to finish it, but it is still dark looking.

    This cabinet is gorgeous!
    Furniture Doctor by George Grotz I think has info how to fix up the shellac - if not it is a pretty good read

    Lucky you! Attachments can be hard to find. I love my 9W. Beautiful stitching, easy to treadle. Any of the Wheeler and Wilson type machines are fabulous to sew on. Cabinet is nice, too!!
    The "sad" one that follows will clean up and sew like a dream. You'll be surprised.
    Yes, Miz Johnny, I know that it can be cleaned up and it too will sew beautifully! I just need to get a couple of missing parts for it, which I haven't done yet. This was my free machine in the badly worn cabinet with the treadle that treadles very smoothly. I went for the free treadle for a different facelift project, and the surprise in the cabinet was this Singer. Again the machine found me! One day it will work too.

    Here is a picture of the attatchments. Does anyone know what the attatchments are for or what they do? The second picture is of a wooden box a friend gave me a long time ago, I collect boxes. I knew they were attatchments for a sewing machine, but I never knew that it went to a vintage Singer sewing machine. I think it is called a Singer puzzle box. How do I find out if they will work on my Singer 9w? I forgot to mention that I paid $30 for the machine and cabinet, it needs a belt.
    i just left this site and you can down load pics of many boxes of how they were from the factory.

    Keep in mind with these old cabinets that if there's no reason to refinish, then removing patina removes value... that being said, it's yours, do what you want with it! ;) :)

I have had this machine tucked away for thirty-five years and got interested in getting it to work from this thread.
    I certainly appreciate knowing more about it. Thanks for what information you have given me already.
    Take a look at page 8 of this manual and see if it helps any at all:

    Lori, here are your attachments with some comments.

    Numbers 1-4 (and maybe 5, I can't see the clamp fixture well enough) are all for your Singer 9W.
    1. is part of an adjustable hemmer, I think the other part of it is laying in front of #5.

    2. is a gathering foot....it makes a small or puckered gather at the seam line.

    3&4 are too difficult for me to see to be able to tell you for sure what they are.

    5. If this has the same kind of "shank" on it as 1-4, then it's also for your 9W, and is a pintucker.

    6. I hope these are Boye 18 needles, they'd be for the 9W if they are, and are getting to be scarce as hen's teeth!

    7. These feet look like top clamps to me, and would be for a White, National, Davis, New Home, Standard, Domestic, Kenmore, or Free Westinghouse. There are 12 different widths of slots in 1909, according to the Sewing Machine Attachment Handbook that was recommended by someone else...a great little book to have!! :)

    8&9 are rufflers, and I can't tell from the photo what they fit. The piece just to the left of 8 & 9 looks like it may be the missing piece of #1, the adjustable hemmer.

    10. Is a quilting bar. It attaches to a quilting foot so that you can stitch lines an even distance apart.

    Hope this helps!
