Hello, I am new here and I have purchased a Simpson 15 A sewing machine and have no info on it like age or where to get parts. The machine does not have power looks like it was a foot peddle treadle machine.Any info would help Thanks
If it looks like the one in Simpson sewing machine It is probably from the very early 1950s. Most of the later 15-clones had a drop feed knob on the bed.

Does your machine have a solid hand wheel or is it spoked? A spoked handwheel looks like the one seen at If it is like that you could get a Hand Crank for it like the one seen at
If it has a solid wheel and you want to put a motor on it. Do you have a bolt in the pillar under the hand wheel? One could get a motor like and would need a foot controller and cord that you could plug the motor into like
Or could get something like

There are several options available and places to get them, I just wanted to show what it needs to power it. Does it need anything else? There are lots of places that you can get some parts that will work for this machine,

There is a manual for 15-clones at If your machine is like the Simpsons I linked to above and does not have a drop feed dog, just ignore that section of the 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
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.
