    What model Singer might this be?

    I'm waiting delivery of the 15-99 I purchased and am beginning to look at either a cabinet or the hardware to put it into a table I have. I found this on Craigslist. I really like the cabinet and that is reason I would purchase it, but also wonder what model the machine is? A 66 perhaps?

    Belfrybat,

    From the size of the motor compared to the pillar and the length of the bed, I'd say that was a 99. The 99 is a 3/4 size machine so your 15-91 won't fit into the cabinet.
    That's too bad cos I do like that cabinet too.

    A 3/4 sized cabinet!! That's not easy to find. I'd probably make room.

    That is a 66 machine. If you look to the tight of the machine bed you can see where the cabinet cut-out continues. If the machine you are getting is a full size machine it will fit right in that cabinet/desk. Those desks are wonderful if you get it for a good price. They are solid wood. They were introduced in the early 60's to be sold with the 400 and 500 series machines. The black machines are a smidge shorter in the bed so you will have a gap like the one shown in the pictures. The hinge pins will line up okay. Are you getting a class 15 machine with the verticle bobbin or are you getting a 99 that uses a drop in bobbin? There is no 15-99 machine

    I agree with Joe, it looks like a 99. The gap to the right of the machine in the cabinet makes me think that it doesn't fit properly so the cabinet is probably for a full sized machine and the 15 will fit fine.

    I mistyped -- the machine I am getting is a 15-91 with the vertical bobbin. The advertised price for the above machine and cabinet is $75.00, which seems like a decent price if the cabinet is in good condition. I really am only interested in the cabinet, although if I get it, I'll probably keep the machine if it runs.

    Contact the seller and get the serial number. The model can be positively determined that way.

    It's a 99 ..... ..... a little birdy told me ....

    If the machine in this cabinet is a 3/4 you can not put a full size machine in it. The spacing of the hinge pin on the full size machines is different than on the 3/4 size. The are not interchangeable.

    I really like that cabinet. Machine looks like a 3/4 size. should entirely fill the hole if it is meant for a big machine. don't think your pins will line up right for a big one.

    I would get it for the cabinet alone. If the machine fits, fine if not, your other one will. Either way it's a great cabinet desk!
