Manicmike, what a nifty free-arm! And very nice wooden base etc. I wonder, is that original? Looks like it is... or a nicely done home job. Anyhow, that is really nice! Also like the all-metal (non-painted) free arm surface. What model is this called?
I think this might actually originally be a 15-88 that was converted to electric. I have the exact same machine but its in the treadle base still. The 15-88 came with the wheel that's bigger and spoked for a treadle, its not the small solid wheel that came with the 15-90. ITs a beautiful machine. I posted a pic of mine.
Sewing a button on the flat bed version (319) can be done on the regular plate by dropping the feed dogs, but this can't be done on the 320. I'm thinking of modifying a 319 darning plate to fit.
There's a blog entry (not mine) on it here

Seeing as there isn't a lot of information on the 191J, how different are they from the 201's?

Here is a matte black Singer that was just given to me today. The people paid $5 for it. It looks the serial # tag has been removed or has fallen off. So I need some info on it. This pics are not very good. The machine is wired into the cabinet and the plug is located on the back of the cabinet that then plugs into the wall outlet. It also has a knee control, but appears that part of it is missing. The motor runs but the machine won't sew. Obviously needs some serious cleaning. Any idea how I can find a place to get the serial # and something about the machine so I know how to take it apart and grease it up and clean it?
