    What Do I Have Here model 15?

    Was given this machine today as a gift after a gentleman saw how wonderful my Model 66 Red Eye looked. Trying to find information on the model and I'm still not sure if it is a model 15. Would appreciate your help in identifying it. Thanks.

    It looks like an early 15 to me. Do you have the serial #? That would tell for sure.

    I'd rather spend money on my quilting hobby than the therapist.... I'm probably $$$ ahead.... and I'm happy!!

    It is a model 115 ! Its serial number was allocated on March 18, 1914 and there were 5,000 serial numbers in that allotment.

    You're welcome. I am lucky enough to have a 115 also and it has those Gingerbread/Tiffany decals also. I think you will be very happy with your machine. Happy sewing to the two of you!

    I have already started the cleaning process. I will try to post a picture when I finish. I think she will be a beauty. Any more information on this particular machine? I have been searching the internet and haven't found much. I did find a manual that was downloadable tho.

    The model 15 and 115 are very similar. The difference is underneath the machine. The 115 is a true rotary hook machine while the 15 uses an oscillating hook. If you look underneath, the hook assembly is much smaller on the 115 than the 15.
    It should be a really nice machine for you. That's also one of my favorite decal patterns.

    Candace, I have not tried FM on my 115 yet. It sure does turn nice/make a nice stitch. I should put a motor on it and try it out - I just haven't had much time to mess around.
