    Can someone tell me about this machine??

    It followed me home yesterday along with a Singer 66. I got them both for $40. It came in a DIY barn wood stand which they were using as decoration. I did find a serial number but it is 7 digits and when I went to look it up I could not find it. It has a potted motor, but I am stomped on how the motor is powered. Just thought I would put it out here to see if anyone knows which machine this is. (Pic Heavy)

    Thanks,
    Kat

    Close leon you are off a couple of lines http://ismacs.net/singer_sewing_mach...l-numbers.html

    It is a 101. I'm not sure if ISMACS or Singer has a manual.

    It's an odd bird. It looks like a 66. I didn't know they put potted motors on singer 66 machines, though. I wasn't aware they used potted motors that early either.

    Someone with more experience than me will have to explain this.

    edit: Janie was typing when I was. She definitely knows more than me.

    Great find. It's not common, but they turn up now and then here on QB. They have this fancy oil wicking system, take care and use only good sewing machine oil, nothing too fancy with teflon or spray box stuff.

    The top of the bed comes off, and you might find the wiring under there. I think these usually came in cabinets, and I think most of them came with knee controller fitted in the cabinet. It should easily be fitted with a pedal though. The case is ill-fitting, I hope you find something better. It has a reputation for being faster than a 201.

    My keyboard locked up mid post. Ahhh 101 makes sense. I am thinking it has a spider oiling system. I don't have one. I am thinking those grease pots under the machine need grease not oil... but I'm am out of experince here.


    Thanks Janey and others.

    The number is between 0770576 and 0775575, it is a model 101 made 4/1/1924, they made 5,000 that day.
    If I find the manual I will post for you. It is electric and needs a cord.

    Thank you everyone for your help identifying the machine, and I was to find a manual for it.

    Thanks again.

    Actually, the machine's serial number was allotted on April 1, 1924 along with 4,999 others. They would have been made sometime between that date and close to the next allocation date for that type of machine. So probably close to July 15, 1924 as that is when the next batch was allotted. Of course no one knows for certain when Singer decided that the next batch should be allotted.
