This is an antique Singer # G5751388. From looking at the Singer date site it appears this machine was made in 1910. Its missing the shuttle and the bobbin but I can find those a bit later. This machine I gave

I've been working on the Mason Rotary. I spoke to Whites yesterday and found that it was made in 1913, this was the ONLY year this machine was made. The Singer has been oiled to try to break up some of rust and gunk in it. From what I found under some of the dirt it has the Sphinx decal set and I'll be ordering a replacement since what is there is in bad shape.
