    Can't trust the serial number on the Singer...it's a 9W, and those are the machines made from old Wheeler & Wilson stock after Singer bought the company. Looks like an early one, so 1908 might be fairly accurate...they were made from 1906-1913.

    My first thought on the handcrank was a Singer 12, but that badge is not a Singer badge, I can't read what it says... these should be fun restores for you!! Can't wait to see what you do with them!
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    There is no lettering of any kind anywhere that I can find so far on the hand crank machine.
    The image on the badge looks like a picture of a castle with a ribbon banner draped around it.
    The center of the bed has mother of pearl inlaid flowers and leaves.
    The shuttle is missing.
    The bobbin plate arrangement is like on the Singer model 12, but the base of the machine is standard rectangular shape, not the fiddle shape.

    There are quite a few similarities to the Singer model 48k as well.

    There are quite a few similarities between the last two posts as well.

    I would guess a Frister & Rossman or a Gritzner. I will check and try to be more precise later...

    Thanks SteveH!
    There is a picture (3rd one down) on http://www.sewmuse.co.uk/frister.htm that looks like it could easily be the cleaned up twin of this one except this one has the mother of pearl inlay and that picture doesn't.

    MOP inlays were done by most companies but "only for the finest" machines...

    I am in the process of learning to do MOP myself for restoring machines. The information I have says that it is up to 20 hours of block sanding to get the effect.
