    Boy, Archaic, your machines look so clean! They look brand new. So pretty.

    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.

    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
