Default old singer

I have been given a old singer machine, I am not sure but the # on it tells me it was made in 1938. it is black krinkle finish
with a shuttle bobbin and a metal rod to insert into the front to run the machine. the wiring is bad so I have not plugged it up.
the bentwood case is in reasonable shape. The number on the front is AF 978420 under the machine it has a Samco10 USA 54564 stamped into the metal. any information I can get on this machine would be appreciated. thanks tinbren

You probably have a 128-23. The serial number was allocated June 25, 1941, so it was made sometime after that. There is a manual for older 127 & 128 machines that should be helpful at https://www.manualslib.com/manual/10...?page=1#manual

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
And how to use an ipad to post pictures can be found at Uploading photos

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.
