    I love the cabinet. What is the s/n? Have you looked it up on the Singer Website to see what model it is and when it was allocated?

    I will have to look at the serial number. I paid for it but left it at the shop. My son is coming home for Memorial Day weekend so I will pick it up then. It needs a belt and a few other things. I saved the tutorial on a restoring a Singer. Hope I can get it working. Will let people know once I get it home.

    I already am bitten by the bug. I can hardly wait to get started on it. I may go back to the antique shop to get the serial number so find out more info. I like redoing things so this should be fun. I was online and was surprised on how much information and parts are available.

    Mortina, you have the serial number already! :) Do you see the little plate that's attached to the machine base by the bobbin winder? That's got the serial number on it.

    Beautifull machine and cabinet. Be sure to find out about the sphinx exblem--it means it is a certain age and they are more valuable. I'm sure you will find more info about your new beauty.

    I have one but I am not sure what year it is. It has 3 drawers on each side with a neat tilting drawer in the front. Mine works really well and even has one of the early electric motors you could add on. Randy bought it for $20 in 1982 when we were engaged. I've set my machine on top, but never used it to make anything. My daughter Gabi wants to take it to her house. I'm thinking about it.
