Well, I picked it up today and it seems I'd contacted the guy a couple of weeks ago and told him how to fix it (in the previous ad he said "doesn't work - runs at full speed when switched on"). He didn't fix it. I removed the capacitor, oiled it and it's absolutely like new. It's one of the aluminium machines made in Scotland after WW2.
    We're all definitely spoiled for beautiful machines. These were very demanded in their day and now go for nothing. This appears to be *the* time to buy, or am I wrong and they'll actually all be worth nothing in the future?
    That's gorgeous. How could you *not* get it. I believe that because these old machines will never be made again, that *someday* they will be worth more than they are now. It may be 100 yrs, or 200 yrs, but some day.

    I have never seen this before, if it works this is soooo cool. You'd never need to thread your bobbins, just plug in another spool into the can. Awesome idea. Funny more machines dont' use something like this?

    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.

    Cecilia, it's totally original, model 320K2 and was something of an all-in-one solution until yesterday when I discovered that the instructions for sewing hooks and eyes, buttons etc (which I do a lot on this machine) required the darning/embroidery plate, which is of course missing and almost impossible to get
    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
    My Singers: 12k (1883), VS2 Roses and Daisies (1891), VS2 Victorian (1891), Improved Family (15-1, 1886), 15k (1917), 27 Tiffany (1900), 29k58, 96k41 (1947), 96k41 (1949), 201k (1953), 201p (1958) 206k11 (1950), 222k (1954), 222k (1959), 306k, 320k2(1959), 401g (1960), 411g
    Others: Empisal (1960s), Bernina Record 530-2, Pfaff 60, Pfaff 260, Lemair (1960s)

Both are operational but the electric needs to get the timing fixed and the treadle needs a new belt - I think That said, I don't plan on using the machines, they will stay tucked away in the cabinets. One will be used for my pressing area, I have a small ironing board that will rest nicely on top and the drawers will store fat quarters. The other one will be used to place my computerized Pfaff which I use everyday. It is totally inspiring when I quilt - to think who and what were made with this little peice of history! Love, love them.

    The first one is a 15-90, its a wonderful machine that I use for quilting and free motion work.

    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?Name:  P1020209(1).JPG

    That is a Model 101. Does anything move when the motor is running?

    Is the serial number on the front apron, under the bed?
