    Default I CHALLENGE you to guess what my new machine is......

    Ok, folks, It has been a while since I picked up a machine in the right timeframe for my collection.
    (Caveat - I will not actually be getting my hands on this machine for a couple of months, because I am unwilling to risk it in shipping. )

    So, here you have shown the needleplate, shuttle, presser foot, and serial number.

    The Challenge: can you tell me what make AND model this is?
    (for 2x extra points: can you date it?)

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]523590[/ATTACH]

    P.S. Yes, I DO know the Make, Model, and Date of the machine

    I don't have a clue, but very interesting pictures. I will be waiting for the answer.

    Oh - time to think . . . recently I was reading something about a machine that had two numbers on the plate - but don't recall what it was . . .

    I tried searching but I'm stumped. My first thought is Wheeler and Wilson. There is just something about those fat slide plates.

    I think I found it - unless their is another with that same slide plate configuration. That is so, so neat that you are getting one of those!

    Is it a Singer model A from the civil war era? Why does it have two serial numbers?

    Are you getting a base? and if so, does it look like the one I have?

    Is msleepingbeauty00 correct? Curiosity is brewing. And of course we would love to have more photos and the rest of the story.

    Thanks to posts here I know what the bobbin is and how to thread it. But that does not change much. It goes to several different kinds of machines.
