    Go to the singer website, type in your number and a whole list will come up. You will be able to find out where and when your machine was made. Congratulations!

    You should join the vintage singer yahoo group. They have a wealth of information.

    My grandmother had a treadle and she would let me "sew" on it when I was a kid. Maybe the fact that I was a gangly, uncoordinated kid has something to do w the fact I could only make it sew in reverse. My feet just didn't have the rythm - wonder how I'd do today. Bet I know, I still have the same feet. :/

    Have fun with Her. We bought one at an estate sale last month DH said it was a late birthday present.So far we've sanded the wood and stained her then used Tung oil on her ( what a shine with just one coat)We are doing the work ourselves as we are on a very tight budget. She is a beauty.

    I love my treadle, too...my great grandma actually had an electric motor added to it, too...when I say I love it, I mean I love the memories I have of "Ma" and "Nanny" sewing while I was visiting, and their patience with me...I also love how it looks... :-) ...I just recently figured out that it may be nice to actually use it... :oops: ... after seeing so many on here sew with theirs!! So, dh is in process of cleaning it all up for me, and I can't wait to give her a whirl!!... Congrats on yours!!

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-155695-1.htm this is a video on cleaning and oiling a vintage machine. If you can find a manual it will have info pertinent to your particular machine. Muv is one of our board members and has 9 videos on Utube - see the top of the video for other videos she has done. She also has a link to her website under her posts on here. Down a ways on the above link is her post.

    I printed out the list from Singer for the serial numbers starting with AB a while back if anyone would want it.

    If you post pictures, someone will be able to tell you. :)

    I have a treadle and I just researched my serial number online. I was able to locate the year it was made and information from Singer on the development of that brand for that make and model for that year.
