    What's the serial on yours Crossstitcher? If I remember right, I have to agree, your's is older. What color is the felt in your attachment drawer? Do you have the dividers in it? I still have the blue felt, but the dividers are gone...

    But??

    Looks like it might have one of the green machines.... a 185 maybe? Nice price..the cabinet is a Singer #40. The Queen Anne version is the same number only with curved legs, I guess it has something to do with the way the top closes, maybe?

    Picot hemstitcher cover plate numbers:

    Class 15 machines take the 121388 plate, the attachment thumbscrew number is 51347A
    Class 66 (EXCEPT the 66-1 or 66-3) take the 121389 plate.
    Class 99 machines take plate number 121389
    Class 101 machines take plate number 121390
    Classes 127 and 128 takek 121391 (including screw number 202)
    Class 221 takes plate number 121392.

    They all take the same attachment thumb screw. The Singer part number for the hemstitcher itself is 121387.

    This is according to the manual that came with my hemstitcher... My other hemstitcher is a "generic" for "Rotary machines"....wonder if that means I need to buy a White? LOL!

    has anyone ever taken the front plate off of a Domestic series 153. I need to see what it is supposed to look like when you do. Can't seem to find one anyplace!

    Was playing with dropping my feed dogs on my 301 last night. (Amight handy feature) Do I still need to get a special attachment when I start doing fmq/darning or embroidery?

    Just the hopping foot! You don't need a coverplate when the dogs drop.

    Ok Jon, the picture of the Hale Crescent on the newspaper ad, is my machine - the cabinet looks exactly like the picture. I wish I could print out the newspaper article, but when I try it comes out 'tiny.' I have tried re-sizing the article, but it still comes out tiny! I want to put that article in the paperwork with this machine! Thank you so much!

    Now what makes you think it is a Davis? My Free has the same chain lift on the cabinet, so does my National Two Spools? My Davis Vertical Feed uses the flip lid, not the chain lift? I am just curious, I am not doubting you. This machine definitely is the machine pictured on the newspaper article.
