    Your 319 looks wonderful in that treadle cabinet (which is beautiful too, BTW ). I saw a 319 in a treadle cabinet, on Youtube, and put it on my wish list. I finally found one, in really nice condition, on CL. I would like to put it in a treadle but haven't done it yet.

    The serial is # D-308817, April 22, 1908, 2,000 issued, or made. It is a domestic, automatic tension. If anyone has more information on her please let me know. Thank you, Anamaria

    My favorite treadle is my 1936 Singer 201k-4(original hand crank). There's also my 1968 Singer 237 zig zag and 99K hand crank. Also my 1916 Singer 66-1 red eye.

    Singer 201K4

    Hi Sharon,

    Iíve been waiting to see a photo of your Singer 201K4 HC/Treadle. Thanks for posting it. It looks good! I got to see your Singer 66-1 ďin actionĒ at the Northeast Texas TOGA, but I hadnít seen your 201K before now. I canít tell for sure from the photo, but is your 201K4 in a straight-leg (metal) treadle cabinet?

    One of my newest acquisitions is a 1948 Singer 201K4 that I picked up in Mesquite Texas. It was electric when I got it, but now has a spoked hand wheel (from a 66) and a Singer hand crank (from a 28), so I have it set up as a portable. I also picked up a 1940s Singer straight-leg (metal) treadle that I may use with my 201K4 and some other Singer heads that I have. We ran out of room for cabinets a while back, but I may have to make a spot in the house for this treadle cabinet. I donít have a Singer treadle in the herd currently, and since I like Singers, I probably should have at least one.

    CD,
    My 201k-4 was bought at the Llano TOGA in 2007, it's a natural born hand crank in a bentwood case; after I wound the first bobbin the 201 became a treadled machine. The step-grands like to use the hand crank, they've not got wanted to treadle yet.
    My cabinet was a freebie from my friend,Karen, I just recently swapped out the straight leg irons for another set in better condition. My set was missing a screw and just didn't turn very well despite having been taken all apart and thoroughly cleaned,greased,oiled and adjusted. My original set was the donor for a few parts for the newer set. I have 3 Singer treadle cabinets and 4 heads. Soon I'll have my Singer 115 ready to sew, my son and I just got it freed up; it was rusted inside and even came with a bonus mud dauber nest in the pillar. Soon I'll have another 66-1 red eye cleaned up and sewing; my friend got it for free and asked if I wanted it (silly girl of course!!!).
    It doesn't look like your 201 has much in the way of decals and is shiny, my machine is a 1936. I prefer the Singer treadles too, I learned to sew on an electric Singer 66 in junior high school.

    CD, I recently got a 15-96 in a straight leg treadle just like yours. I think it's a 1956 model 15. Did they make the same straight leg treadle cabinet/irons for all those years? You say yours in 1940s...so, over 10 years? Thanks.

    I am also planning to put my 66-1 brown lotus decals in this same treadle base, swapping out the 15.

    I think that there were at least 3 versions of the household-use straight-leg cabinets through the years. I’m aware of one with wooden legs, one with cast iron legs, and this one with pressed steel legs. I have one with wooden legs that I believe dates back to the 30s. I also have an industrial stand with straight pressed steel legs that I think dates to the late 30s. I don’t know which ones were offered when.

    Mine is pressed steel for sure and looks exactly like yours...even the wood cabinet. Interesting.

    Thanks, d...she's one of the first machines I got, and I really love her. We still have to rewire her motor before she can be used.

    MY FIRST SINGER!!
    Just picked this up at a local consignment store for $19.00 she has a hand crank along with shuttle and bobbins. I thought she looked like she was in pretty good shape considering her serial number is according to Singer website is from 1910.
