I mentioned earlier today that I was goin to go look at what I thought was Singer 127. I'm not positive but I think that is what it is. Needles to say, I did buy it, along with what I think is a Singer 328 and a Morse machine. All cabinet models.
I need to research more about the Morse, I will probably sell it and the 328, soon as I get them cleaned up some.
Well, here is a picture of my Treadle, I think buy the serial number it is a 1924 model or a 1935 model. Not sure if the serial number is one letter prefix or if it is a two letter prefix. Could be a GO as in letters or a G0 as in single letter and a zero.
I have 5 pictures so I guess I will make two post.

Do all Singer Treadle's have rolling feet ?

I know I will have to have a belt and am on the look out for a manual and some more bobbins, as well as what attachments that were made for it (as soon as I know for sure exactly which model it is).
If anyone can think of anything else I need to acquire, please chime in and let me know.
Thanks for taking the time to look and comment.

Jim

As far as I know all antique singers have rolling feet.

I think you do have a model 127. I've done research to compare the 27, 127, 28, and 128. The 28 and 128 have the 3/4 size bed and the 27 has the bobbin winder low on the column. It's just like a 27 so the manual for the 2 would be the same. Check the Singer web site for a manual.

It's a great machine. I learned to sew on a 27. Definitely clean it up and use it. There are several places online to get belts and bobbins. Just be sure the bobbins are the long ones. Some of the repros are shorter, I have heard, and don't work well. Do you have the shuttle? That is most important.

Thanks Barb, I have 2 shuttles with it and one bobbin. Soon as I get time and are for sure which model it is, I will start rounding up what I need to make it useable.
