    I have recently acquired 2 Older Singer Machines. I have done a search and cannot find information on them. I know there is a website to go to but I cannot find it. If anyone can help me out I would appreciate it. The Serial No.'s On the treadle G4501814. I would like to know the model and it's birthday. The second is AD674051. Thanks for any information that you can give me.

    I'll try. Actually there are 3 machines 4 pictures. Thanks for asking and looking. The 99 was born 6-12-1934 in Elizabeth, NJ., bought at auction for $45. The 66 was born 2-24-1916 in Elizabeth, NJ., bought at auction for $35. The featherweight was born 10-26-1950 in Elizabeth, NJ., given to me. Thanks for asking and looking.

    I'm not sure of the site but Singer does have one and you can either call them at the number or email them and they'll contact you soon. I sent them info for 4 machines and the next day got an email from them with all of the dates, origins etc. Try googleing dating singer machines; the site does exist

    Thank You for the information. Magpie also gave me a direct link to Singer, and I was able to acquire the info I wanted.

    The wonderful lady no longer had the desire to sew. I offered to pay for it, but just wanted the machine to be used. I Promised I would!

    What a lovely grouping of machines!! And you have some of the most desired Singers out there to boot. Be sure to use them and you will really enjoy them, in fact I am betting that you will get rid of your modern machine and start using vintage machines exclusively!

    Great beginning collection. I second Billy's suggestion and say get them all cleaned and lubricated and start sewing. Each will have a special place.

    That is a nice set of decals on the 66.

    That is the next step. They both need to be cleaned and oil. Will be doing some research on how to restore the cabinets also. Thanks to everyone for the comments on my machines.
