Default Old(ish) Singer ID

Hi everyone… new here! Whilst holidaying in France I have just picked up in second hand shop a Singer serial No R635137, hand operated. After a bit of research I came up with a manufacturing date of 1902 but couldn’t identify the model type. Is the serial No enough to identify model type? It does seem to be in working order but is a little stiff. Also looking for a user manual

Welcome to Quilting Board. More than likely it is a 28K according to https://ismacs.net/singer_sewing_mac...l-numbers.html There have been some errors in the serial number database, but most are correct

To help identify which Singer model you have there is this site https://www.sandman-collectibles.com...r-machines.htm

A lot of information about this family of machines can be found at https://www.singersewinginfo.co.uk/28

A manual can be found at https://www.scribd.com/doc/231024754/Singer-27k-28k or https://res.cloudinary.com/singer-se.../268_27_28.pdf

We like pictures. In order to post pictures on Quilting Board, you will probably need to reduce or compress the picture to a file size that is smaller than 2MB. How to post images can be found at https://www.quiltingboard.com/attach...020-01-17-.pdf
Don't forget to scroll over to the far right to find and click on the "Upload" button.

I have found that only the big red "Reply" button or "Quote" work to give me the paper clip icon to work for adding pictures.

Some additional info regarding reducing images at post #4 and images for the scroll and upload button can be found at #5 of quilt block ID?

Another way to post pictures can be found at 2021/2022, 2.5” Birthday Swap

Or simply - Make sure pictures are smaller than 2MB
Click on red "Reply" button
Click on the paper clip icon
Click browse - choose picture/s. (only 5 allowed per post)
Once they show up as being loaded, Scroll over to the right side and click on "Upload"
After the pictures show up as being attached, you can close that window and go back to the screen to finish posting your post.
