The owner, when asked said, "This must be model number AL841238." We all know that's the serial number. .

    I tried searching here for the info, but it only tells you the thread it's in, and as we all know, this one is pretty long. I will read all this until I find something if I have to. . .

    I think I was able to post pictures the owner sent me, since he didn't put it in the ad.(http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/atq/2704867044.html)
    edited: I am not having any luck posting the picture. I click the "go advanced" button, manage attachments, tell it to upload then the only other thing I see on there is to close window. Bummer!
    Sorry, can't help with the pics. Here's the link to find the model # and dates, I know there are a few dead ends on ISMACS http://www.ismacs.net/singer_sewing_...-database.html
    Looks like a 15 Class from '54.

    If I counted right, thatís 35 machines in your home? Isnít finding a place for them fun?

    My wife and I turned our living and dining rooms into our sewing room back in 2009, since we were spending more time in the small sewing room (spare bedroom) anyway, including our guests that had to see what the latest project was. We have our 401A, 301A, 14SH654 serger, and the White W3300 Embroidery machine set up in a large 3-sided sewing area, with the 404, 221, and Genie 353B in portable cases and the JC Penney 7057 FA setting underneath ready to go when needed. A retired (wifeís first, now on standby) 14U344B serger and nine other assorted heads are stored down under there too. In our parlor area (living room), one of my 29K70 boot patcher treadles, a W&G Type 11 in a Parlor cabinet, my Grandmotherís old White VS3 treadle, and a W&G Automatic treadle are lined up along the wall, with my 28K2 hand crank and 221 hand crank setting on top of them. A Singer 20 and a Singer 24 are on small shelves up on the wall. A Davis NVF head is hiding on the floor between cabinets, and a Wards UHT-J266B (copy of my wifeís very first sewing machine) is trying to blend in with the kidís photos and seasonal decorations on the bookcase built into the adjacent wall. A White Embossed Rotary is inside of the Martha Washington cabinet that is serving time as a coffee table. My Singer 319W hides in its model 56 cabinet and stool in the guest bathroom with my 66-1 hand crank in a portable case setting underneath ready to go, a pair of centennial heads (201-2 and a 15-91) are stashed on shelves in the main bedroom, and two cabinets containing a green Singer 185J and a bright blue Sears 158.443 serve as a desk for the computer that I am using. My newest acquisition, a 201K hand crank and portable case with extension are temporarily residing in the hallway next to some shelving, and Grandmaís 301A and cabinet are waiting in her bedroom for her to finish moving in with us later this month. The National Model J and portable case is hanging out in the bike shop (utility room), and the card table for the 404, 401A, and 301A is in another spare bedroom.

    I think that makes 38 here inside the house, and I have 5 more of my collection at the shop, including another 29K70 treadle that I use there. Oh, and wait a minute, thereís an auction coming up this weekend that I hope to be at that lists a treadle and a portable.....

    I'd imagine quite a few of us could use a call from "Hoarders", the TV show, myself included. I started collecting Sewing machine trade cards--- small, light, and don't take up much space.

    Thanks, Glenn, that will come in handy.
    ThayerRags, I guess I can keep on collecting after all. Not sure there is a 'holy crap, you've got too many' number. lol

    Really like the looks of this machine and table!

    It is very simple and clean (streamlined) looking! Would fit in well with the way I decorate...as if that matters when it comes to vintage machines!! LOL

    Now you made this hoarder think, "Wow, I wonder if I can find the trading cards to match all my machines? What are Sewing machine trading cards? Where can I even get them? I need them."
