Stummel, that is one gorgeous machine, with a folding hand crank as well! Congratulations!

Does anyone have a closeup pic of the Singer 319w bobbin case? I have one in the bobbin assembly, but I'm not really sure if it is the correct one. Would appreciate a pic so i could verify.

Cool looking machine Melinda! What are those silver things on top towards the back?

Nancy

Those are the "keys" that adjust to make different stitches.

Melinda,

Congratulations!! What a great buy! Is it green? I seem to love any of the machines with unusual colors. Very cute.

I have a black 319 which I love to use. I do my quilting in a straight line on mine and sew bindings on. I wish I had an extra bobbin case but I don't. But, here is the number that is on mine and maybe it will help you find one. #173058. The silver levers are for different stitches and to use with your cams. You can find them on e-bay. Is your machine a green color?

Thanks. This bobbin case has #105032, so it must belong to something else.

[quote=Stummel]Oh, what a fun thread! I just inherited this old Singer form my husband's aunt, but haven't actually tried it out yet.

Beautiful Model 28! I have one just like it in a Parlor cabinet! Mine is from 1898 page 352 here!

Nancy

But I still don't know if they made mine or if someone else did. I have a photo of the bobbin, could anyone tell me what kind it is so maybe I can find a few?
And also a photo of the needle in it- it is huge compared to a standard needle made today, I would also like to know what kind it is so I might find a few.

I really appreciate all your help!!
Take a look at the bobbin and see if it says Davis on it. Sometimes a badged Davis will have the name on the bobbin.

JaKnits, yes I have been searching also. Davis did indeed make the Standart machine. Your Standart take a Davis long which is a Boye #10 -- you can get them on E-Bay.

The needles is about 1 7/8" long.

Here is the ISMACS needle chart I have been looking for! Still can't find any information on my New Home T No 3 needle size! Darn!

I am betting your New Home takes a 20 x 1 needle.
