    Pic's of my singer treadle

    Who knows anything about this little girl?

    Serial # C5863299 ; No model # that I can find.

    She may not look to pretty but she runs and makes a beautiful stitch.

    I am looking for a manual to go with her.

    I don't know, but she is very pretty. And the cabinet is too.

    Well, as far as I can tell it's a model 15 made in Germany.

    Here is what ISMACS has to say:

    Letter Register Numbers From - To Machine Class (Model No.) Quantity Allotted Date Allotted Year Allotted Notes
    C- Beginning 1908
    When Russian army invaded Germany in 1945, they stripped all the machinery from the Singer Company's Wittenberg factory.


    Nice machine and nice cabinet.

    It looks to be one of the model 15's. She's a beauty! Do you have the serial number? You can look it up on this site:

    http://www.ismacs.net/singer_sewing_...-database.html

    Duh ! I see that you have posted the serial number, already...lol!

    My guess is a 115. At first I was going to tell you it was a 15, but the thread tensioner looks wrong for a 15. Ismacs has the correct manual: http://www.ismacs.net/singer_sewing_...e-manuals.html

    The one I downloaded from Singer was wrong, it had the right model number, but showed a machine with a tensioner facing you, which is clearly not right. There must have been 2 model 115s at some time.

    If I could see the bobbin case, I'd have a better idea if it's a 115, but it looks like mine, except your decal set is different than mine.

    The C series serial numbers were destroyed in the war, so there's no record from Singer about it, I can't get you a model from that, or a date.

    You can get a better handle on it you can compare it to these pictures of the bobbin are for a 115 (first) and 15. The two machines otherwise look pretty much identical:

    Oh wow! You people are terrific. It is a 115. I went to the ismacs site and looked at the 115 and there she was! I looked at a lot of pictures to find a similar machine but all had the tensioner in the front and mine is in the back.

    So now I have the manual I was looking for. Thank you everyone for your help. If I could send you all some cookies I would! thanks again.
    peace

    EDIT: Just saw the pic's of the bobbin case and had to gert up to take a look. My case has the same arch piece that goes all the way across the top like in the second pic so I guess she is sweet 15. But all the rest is the same.

    Thank you all again for your time and effort helping me out.

    Excellent! I learned something today too. I didn't realize that the 15s ever had the "bar" by the needle thread tensioner.

    Pretty machine! When I was looking for a 15 or 115 the kind folks on this board said that a 15 is an oscillating hook and the 115 is a rotary. I bought a 115 which they also said was a little more rare. Plus, since it is a rotary hook it has a bit better tension when making quick turns. Enjoy your new baby. Her cabinet is gorgeous! Mine came in a rather plain 5 drawer maple treadle cabinet and has the Tiffany Gingerbread decals too.

    You do have a very nice sewing machine. I often wonder about the travels of the sewing machine that were made in Europe and are now residing here in the US. What a story they could tell if they could.

    oh my goodness. I love her. I think she is pretty just as she is. Bet you have a name for her already. She is wonderful. Wish I could help ID her, but haven't a clue. Thanks for sharing the picture.

    The stamping of the serial numbers isn't always easy for me to read. I am wondering if the alpha on your serial number is a "G" rather than a "C"? If yes, here is the information I found on ismacs:

    LETTER
    G-
    REGISTER NMBR FROM
    5862331
    REGISTER NMBR TO
    5912330
    MACHINE CLASS
    (MODEL NO.)
    15
    QUANTITY ALLOTTED
    50000
    DATE ALLOTTED
    January 3
    YEAR ALLOTTED
    1918

    Below is a picture of the serial number on my machine. I read mine as a "G". I pasted the ismacs info for this serial number too showing that my machine is a 115:

    @ Judythesewer, Thanks for the info. I checked my serial# and for sure it is a 'C'. The letter is san-serif.

    I have a 66 singer, a 1591 and a 99k. And they all work. Love them.
    Love your machine. Do you have any more antiques?
