    Thank you for the comments Means a lot to me. I did note the serial number on it today. 1060778. If anyone is able to assist in an age on this machine I would greatly appreciate it. I believe it was made prior to 1917, but after 1910. That is as far as I am able to get in my research.

    Word get's out... I just had this dropped on my porch. No Power cord, and ewwwwww.

    I'm as courageous as the next sewing machine repair nut, but dang.... not sure it is worth the time.

    Did the baby lock come in a wicker basket with a blanket as well?

    Beware the Critters. This thing could be a Trojan horse just waiting to be brought inside.

    parts: presser foot, bobbin winder, bobbin, uh... not much to salvage on those... well, not unless you have one like it that needs some parts...

    Wow, just dropped off! Someone thought enough of that thing to give it away instead of taking it to the dump? I'd donate it to hospice!

    I think hospice probably has enough near-dead on their hands...

    I fear they have already infiltrated and then they breed - some of them morph into button holers and old zig zag attachments that don't fit anything or junk sewing machines - there may be something that gets into the air then consequently into the blood - then before you know it old sewing machines invade your space until there is none left and the rest of the family thinks INTERVENTION - all they needed to do was find the trojan... its still there somewhere...

    Singer 115-1 treadle

    I just got my Singer 115 all cleaned up and oiled last night. She finally sews!!! The serial number is : #G3702481
    It has one major rust spot next to the "S"on the front of the machine. It was totally frozen with rust, nothing moved.
    The decals are mostly intact, I can't believe how well it sews. The machine is currently living in my franken treadle; top from a coffin top Singer and Elgin(by Free) irons. It uses standard 15x1 needles.
    The first 2 pictures were taken today after last night's cleaning and oiling, it has the face plate from a Singer 15-88. The original tension assembly is so rusty that the tension disks are fused with rust.
    The last picture was taken the day I brought it home; it had a lovely mud dauber's nest in the pillar.

    Sharon,

    What is the difference between a 15 and a 115? From your pic they look the same to my tired eyes.

    115 is a Rotary and the 15 is not. I think most of the visible difference is on the bottomside.

    This is my Singer Treadle, I have no idea about a serial # I did not even know they had one. I will have to look when I get a chance. I'm not sure it works, it needs the belt that runs from the treadle and I'm not sure where to get one. I learned to sew on a treadle my mom had, not this one.

    sew-classic has the belts - look at Muv's videos and her blog and you can learn how to use that machine:
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/vintage...v-t167789.html
    and her blog:
    http://www.lizzielenard-vintagesewing.blogspot.co.uk/
    I like the one with the little man threading the shuttle:
    http://www.lizzielenard-vintagesewin...bin%20machines
    she has a ton of good info and lots of pictures of things she has sewn on her hand crank and treadle machines.

    Thank you for the info Miriam. I'm kind of excited to see if this machine runs. I have had it for a long time just never had the time to check it out.

    OMG You have a 2 spool!!! They're awesome from what I have heard. You can sew for days without having to wind a bobbin. Its a small wooden spool that fits in the canister. Several people on the board have them.

    Hi Joe,
    Its a rotary and also the bobbins and bobbin case are different; feed dogs don't drop, bobbin winder is different, no extra thingy on the front for winding bobbins while sewing. The needle goes in with the flat to the right and threads left to right also; bobbin case threads differently from the 15. I also have a 15-90.
    I hope what I have posted is coherent as I've got that stomach bug that's going around.

    Your machine is pretty and I see that it has the Tiffany/Gingerbread decals that my Singer 115 has.

    Congratulations! Very nice machine, nice decals - mostly all there, and the cabinet looks like it was taken care of! That whole outfit looks like it is ready to go - doesn't need refinishing! Lucky you!

    Thanks. It is a nice machine and I have had it for a very long time. I need to get a belt for her and someone posted a link for parts and now I cannot find the post.

    There are some absolutely beautiful machines in this thread, I spent a couple of hours over the weekend looking at them all, time well spent...

    Thank you Miriam, I will check it out. I will probably need to find out what the model is before I can order.

    No you don't need a model number for a treadle belt. Most all treadle belts that come pre-cut and packaged are 72"s. You will then have to measure the belt to your machine, cut it the correct length and use the little staple like thing that comes with the belt to connect the ends together. Some people on here sew their belts together with dental floss or a heavy thread. Your machine (looks like a Model 127) will use the normal pre-packaged treadle belts. Most all sewing repair shops carry those belts, as do most on-line sewing stores. Just put the belt around the treadle wheel, around your hand wheel slot, cut one end of the leather off where the two ends meet, now sew/connect together. Don't put the belt too tight, but if you find it is too lose when you start to treadle, just cut and re-sew a second time.
