OK - I'm confused. When I went to the Singer website to look up my machine's SN I found it under 1923.

I just found another post where I could print my machines 'birth certificate' and it says 1910.


Which one is right? My SN is G0292904.

Ok ... I see ... at the beginning of the list is a SN G292904 model 27 made in 1910 - at the end of the list is a SN G0292904 model 66 made in 1923.

Looking at pictures of model 27's and 66's - I'm thinking mine is a 66 which means I had read the SN correctly.

So why did my 'birth certificate' print 1910?? I DID put the zero in the SN.

I am VERY confused.

With a bit of TLC you're going to have a very nice machine.
Check my Avatar - same model, Red Eye 66, love it.

Your number plate is there it is the number in the 3rd picture. Not sure what the hole is but it looks like where you could get into it to oil the mechanism.
I was just viewing one of Billy's tutes for a similar electric machine and that plate with the hole in the machine he was demo'ing was the mounting area for the motor. So perhaps they made the machine cases to be either treadle or motorized and mine became a treadle.
Good to know. Thanks.
