It would likely be a workout until it is properly cleaned and oiled.... then still a workout.

Not a giggle. Just a very interesting motor setup.

DRAT!!!! that is SO close to the serial number of the machine I am looking for. It is even a 115 (which is the model I am looking for, but one of the series ordered on Oct 20th 1916)

I have one of those "Jackrabbit" motor setups. I ONLY keep it for the shows so we can show folks the transition to electric stuff.

I have to ask: Why that particular series? And any particular decal pattern?
Careful. I might flood you with every old 15/115 I see.

It is because my Grandmother was born on October 20th, 1916.

they were 115's and most were Gingerbread/Tiffany style.

a 115 if a rotary hook machine

At one time I was also on the chase for a 115, from reading on the net found that all 115 where Gingerbread/Tiffany,( ?? )

BUT at the same time the straight 15 where also made and where all Gingerbread/Tiffany. The only way of tell the difference would be serial number plus see the bobbin area...

I bought a machine site unseen hoping goodwill has the S/N wrong which that one did do quite often.

It turned out to be a 15, which then turns out to be the best treadler I have, after 23 hrs of work on it LOL

Just a heads up: It pays to look at Model 15 machines closely even if they donít have Gingerbread/Tiffany Decals when youíre looking for a 115. I have a 1918 Singer 115 that has Paperclip Decals....and Knots & Rectangles Decals.....LOL!

It has Paperclip on the arm and bed center, and Knots & Rectangles around the bed border. It must be a repaint, but by who (whom)? I didnít think that Singer let their decal sets get too far away from them. There were knock-off decals available in the 40s and 50s, but these look like Singer Decals to me.

So, now I almost always look at the hook when I find a 15 in the wild, just to make sure itís not a 115.

it's even easier for me. All I need to do is look at the serial number and make sure it is in the right batch.
