    parts: presser foot, bobbin winder, bobbin, uh... not much to salvage on those... well, not unless you have one like it that needs some parts...

    Wow, just dropped off! Someone thought enough of that thing to give it away instead of taking it to the dump? I'd donate it to hospice!

    I think hospice probably has enough near-dead on their hands...

    I fear they have already infiltrated and then they breed - some of them morph into button holers and old zig zag attachments that don't fit anything or junk sewing machines - there may be something that gets into the air then consequently into the blood - then before you know it old sewing machines invade your space until there is none left and the rest of the family thinks INTERVENTION - all they needed to do was find the trojan... its still there somewhere...

    Singer 115-1 treadle

    I just got my Singer 115 all cleaned up and oiled last night. She finally sews!!! The serial number is : #G3702481
    It has one major rust spot next to the "S"on the front of the machine. It was totally frozen with rust, nothing moved.
    The decals are mostly intact, I can't believe how well it sews. The machine is currently living in my franken treadle; top from a coffin top Singer and Elgin(by Free) irons. It uses standard 15x1 needles.
    The first 2 pictures were taken today after last night's cleaning and oiling, it has the face plate from a Singer 15-88. The original tension assembly is so rusty that the tension disks are fused with rust.
    The last picture was taken the day I brought it home; it had a lovely mud dauber's nest in the pillar.

    Sharon,

    What is the difference between a 15 and a 115? From your pic they look the same to my tired eyes.

    115 is a Rotary and the 15 is not. I think most of the visible difference is on the bottomside.

    This is my Singer Treadle, I have no idea about a serial # I did not even know they had one. I will have to look when I get a chance. I'm not sure it works, it needs the belt that runs from the treadle and I'm not sure where to get one. I learned to sew on a treadle my mom had, not this one.

    sew-classic has the belts - look at Muv's videos and her blog and you can learn how to use that machine:
    HOW TO CLEAN UP and use a vintage sewing machine - videos by Muv and Fav
    and her blog:
    http://www.lizzielenard-vintagesewing.blogspot.co.uk/
    I like the one with the little man threading the shuttle:
    http://www.lizzielenard-vintagesewin...bin%20machines
    she has a ton of good info and lots of pictures of things she has sewn on her hand crank and treadle machines.
