    Looks like a wonderful find! Congrats. From the condition of the decals on the bed, I'd say it was only lightly used.

    That's a serial number on the plate on the right side. PM me with that number and I'll look up the date for you.

    I don't know the year number, but the light bulb can probably be replaced easily at Lowes or some other hardware store, does it screw in or does it have little knobs on the end - a bayonet bulb- which twists in the socket. You just need to know the correct wattage for the machine, it should say on the end of the bulb. You may be able to find one at Hobby Lobby.

    Same here. Looks like my mom's machine that I was making doll clothes on back in the 50's.

    Post your picture and questions on the Vintage and Antique Machine site here and you will get much help from them. I know they were able to help me get all the answers I needed to get my 1916 Singer running.

    Google Sew Classic dot com. They are well known for having bits and pieces of antiques and vintage machines. On this board there is a whole section devoted to older machines. http://www.quiltingboard.com/vintage...thusiasts-f22/

    That is a sweet little machine and was obviously given a lot of love through the years. FYI for anyone interested in acquiring these machines, the bobbin case is usually the first thing to be "missing" on one of these beauties. The bobbin case is one of the hardest things to acquire as a stand alone part too. I learned that from an article written by a serious Featherweight machine collector. Great prize and you will have lots of fun enjoying that machine. They tend to do a fantastic straight stitch according to book author Judy Martin.

    I haven't been able to go get it yet...as you all probably know, Texas is practically under water...I'm up high, but still raining, and I only have a truck, so I can't go in the rain...called the lady today, maybe we can get together Sunday, if the rain stops...and that is a mighty if.....She was asking $75 and taking offers, so I offered $60, after I see it I will know if all the parts are there etc...thanks for all the information....appreciate it..
