    Hi All,

    I've been having a wonderful browsing though all the pics of beautiful machines here this morning.

    Here's my humble collection.

    Domestic 153 I picked up at Goodwill last week. She's a bit gummy, but runs. I'll be studying Billy's tute on cleaning....I've already taken her out of the cabinet which needs a total refinishing job.

    I'm thrilled with all the attachments and the original book too!

    And the already partially disassembled cabinet. The finish was so damaged, but the cabinet itself is pretty solid. I've started stripping it and will post that project later.

    Next is my Singer 66-16. She came to me from a friend of my daughter's. The wiring was down right scary, and the belt was bad. I replace those and she's good to go.

    The book and attachments.

    And a few more shots of her. I know she's not as fancy as a lot of the machines here, but I love her!

    And last (for now), My Singer 185K made in Kilbowie Clydebank Scotland in 1960. I took her in to my LQS for a quick servicing and adjustment after I got her last month, and she's purring like a kitten.

    Thought I'd share the before and after of the Singer 66 Red Eye that I got a few weeks ago. SN G784285, allotted Oct. 5, 1910 in Elizabeth, NJ. She was left in a house by the previous owners. I was finally able to get out yesterday and get her insides bathed. (Thanks for the detailed tutorials Billy!!) All she needs is a belt to complete her outfit. :) Looks nice in the treadle cabinet too.

    She had a back clamp foot, so I changed out the presser bar from a really rough VS2 that I have. It took a little fiddling, but It seems to work okay, even if the "new" foot doesn't quite fit over the feed dogs.

    Before, dusty and a bit rusty

    Here's my latest, a Singer 115 with gold Wing decals. It's a 1920's model and is just amazing. It's in my Dh's aunt's parlor cabinet which we were blessed with in April. Sews like a dream!

    Thanks, it was neat to see the change.

    Love the decals on your 115. I hadn't heard of that model and had to look it up. I learn something new every time I visit here.

    Here are pics of my new 15-75 and what came with it. The book to the darning/emb attachment are all stuck together. The FW books are not very good. One is useless with pages stuck together and the other has water-stained pages. Does anyone know how to separate the pages safely?

    Have you tried unsticking the pages with steam? Hold it above the kettle, and make sure you wear an oven glove. Then peel apart very slowly. If whatever is sticking the pages together is a water-based adhesive, this should work well.

    Here are a few pics of the 1891 Singer in treadle that Quiltncowgirl and I got this weekend. She took the machine (roses & cornflowers decals) and I took the cabinet/irons for my 1909 66-1 Lotus decals machine. These are the pics the people sent me, so I'll have to take a pic of the whole front, since there isn't one here. The cabinet is Honduran mahogany, and was top of the line when new. It cost $70 new, as the original receipt was still in it.

    It is original, im thinking an industrial, well built, solid wood, not laminant. The back extension moves on an iron rod that was frozen up, til DH & I worked it free & greased it up. I just love it.

    This one looks the same, but cabinet is different so I'm calling it a White. No name on the irons.

    Decals not too bad.

    I can't find the site where you find the dates and the models that are associated with a particular serial number.

    I've been on the site several times, but can't find it now. :(

    I had the same problem this morning! But I typed in 'serial number' in the search box and it directed to a search that led me to the right page. I'm not sure why they changed it, but I saved links to the right pages in my user pages so I could find them again.

    Here is my part of the 1891 Singer...The cabinet and irons are from the 1891 machine, but the head is 1909 66-1 Lotus decals. When I bought the 66-1 it came with a bunch of attachments, and I was so happy because it's a back clamp. So here she is in her new treadle....I think she looks good!! Still not sewing...everything is threaded properly and she picks up the bobbin thread OK, but won't make a stitch. I'm thinking the hook isn't moving.

    Serial Number D1351513 - 1909 66-1
