    I don't know the exact size, but the 99 is a 3/4 size machine, so it will give you a smaller opening than most machines. (I assume you mean the distance between needle and pillar.)

    I could be wrong but I see a G in front of the numbers. That would make it a 127 from 1919.

    On two of the pictures I think I can see the 'G' too. The last picture looked more like an 'A' (upside down) but the 'G' makes more sense.

    After cleaning with some of the hand cleaner and a Q-tip, I can definitly see the 'G' stamped very close to the edge. So it's not as old as I first thought...but I am still happy!

    Your Sphinx looks exactly like my Sphinx posted here on page 469. Mine in a Model 127, as yours is too, and my machine is a 1913. It appears someone put a motor on your treadle, which I would promptly remove!

    I love my Sphinx! It makes a perfect stitch!

    Congratulations!

    There is a "G" on the front of the number, plus they didnt make the 127's until 1913 so it has to be letter in front of the number.

    I have agree with Vintagemotif, it looks like an 'A' now that the upsidedown picture has been flipped over. When I first looked at the posting, the two pictures that were posted first looked like a 'w' to me, but this last one definitly looks like an 'a'. Unfortunately, the letter's 'a' and 'w' were both lost. I can't see a 'g', but it makes more sense that it is a 'g'!

    Anyway, once you get it all cleaned up, you should be able to tell with a magnifying glass, try different angles!

    OK, I am back into my own account. A few posts back I mentioned that after cleaning a little, I could see that it was a G....it was stamped very close to the edge. I just took more pictures that I think will show it better.

    They almost missed the plate with the G..it is stamped very close to the edge.
