    Smile need info on Singer treadle sewing machine.

    I have just finished cleaning a Singer Treadle sewing machine that I purchase last year about this time and my hubby sanded it all down and was going to put a finish on it but got very sick Thanksgiving and to this day he still can't do anything so I got out there and put two coast of polyurinthene on it and it is beautiful. Now I am trying to get the machine to sew. It might be out of time as it won't pick up the thread. Here are the question I need answers for.
    1. What year was it made Serial # G4892643 (round bobbin)
    2. What size needle does it use
    3. Where can I get parts
    4 Where can I see a picture of one to make sure all the parts are on it??

    It is a beautiful piece of furniture.

    The info on the Singer site I visited said 1916, but did not give any other info. Know there is another place with better info, but did not find it this go round. LOL!

    According to the chart on ISMACS it's a Model 115, one of 10,000 allotted 9-20-1916.

    I'm not familiar with that model so I'm afraid I can't be of help with the pics.

    Lots of parts can be found at Sew-Classic.com http://www.shop.sew-classic.com/ .

    Please post a photo of your machine. Most Singer with round bobbins take a 15x1 needle. Parts can be had by googling for Singer parts or you could try Sew Classic. To find a similar sewing machine just look at the vintage thread on sewing machines. Many folks here have posted almost all the Singers on that thread.

    A big help to us so that we can help you is just posting a photo of your machine-makes our work easier.

    Here's an owner's manual going by your serial number. Good Luck.

    A Singer 115 takes a 15x1 needle. It threads a bit differently than other model 15's, and it takes a 20U bobbin instead of a class 15.

    I'd love to see photos of your machine/cabinet!! If you still need it, I can post a photo for you later today or in the morning.
