    1934 Singer sewing

    I got this at an auction for $25.00 and it sews just fine. Cabinet was a little rough, but will try and refinish it. It had all kinds of attachments. I'm 'sew' happy with it, just wanted to share. I hope the picture comes through. Seems I have all kinds of problems when I want to post a picture.

    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    Love my 15-91! If I could only keep 1 machine, that would be it. I found mine at an auction too.
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!

    Really nice, there is something that draws us to these older machines, and it's not just their reliability. They have a special charm.

    How do you know the number 15-91, and does that mean anything special?

    We can tell by the shape of the machine, and the location of the tension dial on the faceplate that the machine is a model 15, that we can't see a belt to "drive" the machine, tells us that it's got a "potted" motor. Machines with those features are models 15-91.

    Thanks, after I asked, I started searching on Google and found some information. I did get a manual as well, so I will need to go to my studio and it probably has that number in the manual someplace. This is fun. Thanks again.

    Even if you weren't sure about the motor/belt differences, if you look just to the right of the stitch length selector lever, you can see one of the grease cups for the gears. That's also a sign of a "potted" motor, gear-driven machine (15-91 or 201-2).

    Wow! $25.00 for a 15-91! I paid $45.00 for mine and I thought that was a bargain. You will love it.

    Love my 15-91 and a wonderful lady gave it to me. It's in the shop right now waiting for me to pick it up. It was a wiring issue that I didn't feel comfortable dealing with. Gotta get her this week...miss her. I do need to have a box base made for her...she didn't come in a cabinet. I don't have room for a lot of cabinets so I opt for tabletops. Although it's not that I lack for machines to sew on...I'm sitting here looking at my 2 FW and my 301A! LOL And don't tell but there are 4 more sitting in my sewing room and 4 more in the garage!! HeHe

    Yes, this is an addiction but one, I hopefully, won't go to jail for!!

    1934 is the year I was born. Maybe it would be nice for you to pass the machine on to me. Ha Ha.

    The thing about it was this was the first auction I had gone to in many years and I really wanted the machine, the auctioneer started at $100, then to $75, then to $50, then to $25.00 no one was bidding on it so I raised my number, now I wonder if it might have gone as low as $5.00 if I had waited. But no worries, I still think I did okay.

    My Sister was born in 1935 and I think of her every time I see my sewing machine. I would love to share with you if you were closer. LOL

    Pretty machine! I recently bought a 15-91 - and I LOVE that machine! It's my favorite (and now primary) sewing machine. Such a good buy too! :-)
