    The decals on this machine are like the ones that are on my new to me 66 I got today. They are called "Filigree" pattern and I think they look really nice.

    I saw this machine on CL. It is selling for $40. Comes with instruction book and some attachments. Number seller gives is A0098474. Just wondering if anyone knows what model this might be and is it worth the $40? Thanks.

    Don't know what the model # is - check the Singer site.

    I'd buy it for $40.00 - looks beautiful.

    laura 59...i think it's worth the money she's asking for, especially if it runs! Looks like it's just need some tender cleaning up.

    In my honest opinion, she looks like either a model 27 or 28. The long slide plate and the bobbin winder is an indication to me that she has a boat shuttle & long bobbin.
    I also believe your machine came from Russia, according to info from the Singer site.

    Blessings,
    Sandi

    Thanks everyone for the info. I did e-mail her and am waiting for her to get back to me. I can see this one following me home.

    Well I looked around on what I have here and I cant find anything in my records about the machine. I have a few things on here that are not on Singers site. ;)

    But the machine is a 128 with an aftermarket motor (maybe because of the difference in electrical) and it looks to be the Godzilla finish which could be a factory refurbish job. If it is it will have a marking on the serial number boss to let you know.

    Well worth the $40!

    Are these machines typically heavy? Penni[/quote]

    Penni,
    The 99k weighs in at about 35 pounds.

    I'm no expert, but looks from the serial number it is a 99K, 30,000 allotted Dec. 3, 1937. Manufactured in Clydebank Scotland. I am not sure but it appears the motor may need to have a converter to our electrical system.

    Pretty machine. :-D[/quote]

    it looks like the motor is a 220 volt., if so then you need a voltage converter if you live in USA or Canada.

    Or just swap the motor out for one set up for 110v. Very simple to do and save the motor thats on it someone may need it in the UK.

    Here I am to the Rescue!!!!

    Lets see if it is here:

    Oh have fun looking this is a very long list!!!

    Wow, Billy! What a list!

    I actually found the manual I was looking for - Hooray!
    Now I'm going to see about printing it off, if I can.

    Thanks so much for your help.

    The other place to find manuals for download is the Smithsonian website! :)

    Charlee, I thought that was the Smithsonian website that Billy had listed the link for. Is there another link I should try?

    Also, I tried to print the manual, and one page is so enlarged, it took three 8 1/2 x 11 pages to print. Not really wanting to do that with a 60 page manual. Is there some other way?

    Edit: Went back to see if I could download, and found nothing to indicate it was possible. What should I be looking for?

    I saw this on Craigslist and don't even know if it is still available. Does this look like a vintage cabinet to you. It almost looks like a converted new cabinet.

    Looks fairly new to me, but I am not the best judge. But IMO it is in too nice a condition to be vintage.

    Hmmmm....looks a lot like the cabinet I bought with my Singer Athena 2000 around 1978 or so....the plastic bin on the upper side of the door on the left side of the photo is a giveaway too....along with the plastic thread spool rack....and on closer inspection....the hardware on front doors is a match to my cabinet.....so it is old but where do we draw the line on "vintage"?

    My 301 came today. She is a beauty. Just needs a little polishing. I have not plugged her in yet, still picking the little pieces of white packing foam off. There is only the one foot, so now I have to find more. I hope she is everything I have heard. She has some traveling to do with me.
