Tammi, the first year for production of the 115 was 1912.

Thanks Barny! Each machine that comes into the house gets a "Welcome to your new home" bath. The "patina", ok,... grime makes me itchy and I don't want to sew anything on them til they're clean. Heck, even some of the parts machines have gotten that "bath". LOL! I might have just realized why so many people call me OCD.

At least one of the 15 style machines you have, -I- want a better look see. It sounds like an Improved Family machine. Pics please!

Default Do i have a115 or 15.30?

Just picked up a free to me treadle Singer machine. But, i looked on the ISMACS website and looked the serial number up. The site told me it was a 15 made in 1910. All the details that have been described in this thread about 115, is exactly what i see on the machine. So what dont I missing?? Please help me to understand. Thank you very much for you help
