    Question Does anyone recognize this Singer?

    I came across this on CL today for $50 and I'm curious as to what model machine this is. I really just want the cabinet should it fit a 15-91 or 66. Thanks for your help.

    Those machines should fit that table - it is a touch and sew - some times they work some times they make you want to rip your hair out.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    Definitely a Touch and Sew by Singer. I hated mine. If I were lucky it worked 10% of the time. My DH at the time thought I shhould have something in a nice cabinet instead of a portable (Necchi which I loved) sitting in the closet and using a table to sew on. Grrrr !!!! Every time I had it worked on he told me what a "Great machine you have." I always told him it wasn't, but he always disagreed. I suppose because it was metal and not plastic.

    Thanks everyone!! I had a nice conversation with the woman who was selling it. I told her I really didn't want the machine but would take the table/cabinet if it the opening met the specifications for a 15-91 (which I provided to her). She measured it and the opening was too large. She I can strike that one off the list.

    EEEEK!!! Its Singer Golden Touch and Sew. My Mom had one and it was the crankiest, worst machine ever made.
    I hated having to use it. I've heard that some people were fortunate enough to have one that worked as advertised.

    LOL! That seems to be the prevailing opinion around here.

    Technically, the machine will fit, the hinges and such will place it right to the left, it will leave a couple of inches open to the right of the machine. I have a table with the same opening dimensions, and a 15 I could put in it to show you if you'd like. The black machines that were treadled typically had the spring piece that the belt went through there.

    I can believe that. I have only seen a couple T&S machines that work.

    I might have one of the little metal fillers...

    Its not for quilters, I had put two different motors in mine before I finally Kicked it to the curb.Literally. The worst singer machine ever made. I would rather sew on my 401, or 404 or FW. etc etc etc . IMHO, cmaras
