That's about 30 miles west of Dallas/Fort Worth. I wish I was closer.

Near as i can figure it is a 103, short arm industrial it is about an inch longer and 1/2" taller "harp or throat' area than most domestic machines, also uses tall shank feet and industrial needles.

Default 1900's Standard Rotary sewing machine

Hi I found one !
just like yours except mine needs to be repainted.
Can you tell me what the knob on the base does beside space the stitching?
Does it reverse? if so I cant get it to slide over, this machine sews leather !
If you find a manual please get a copy on this site (:
also if you do find a site for the Standard on the same knob I mentioned is a serial number that should tell you by cross referencing with the dates made , like Singer has.

When treadling a Standard, one must turn the hand wheel away from you to be able to pick up the bobbin thread. The Standard Rotary works like the White Rotary treadle.

Singer 15, Improved family. Watch the bobbin movement as your turning the handwheel----pretty neat.

All those metal attachments are used to do special sewing techniques....binders, hemmers, ruffler, etc. You can try to find a manual for the machine online, and it will include instructions for using the attachments. How lucky that the machine still has all those!! That's a really nice machine.

See if you can find a wooden Singer puzzle box to keep the attachments in. They're really cool. I think I saw one on eBay yesterday that didn't have the attachments.
