    Currently I have more than these, but here are a few. At some point I will have to sell some of these, just have a few too many, but they all came here in a short time, so am playing around with them.

    Another Singer 28K, just like Charlee's, but not so old judging by the base and case. This one dates from 1940, the decals are known as Victorian, and funnily enough the lady I bought it from was called Victoria. It was very stiff when I bought it - it hadn't been used for years - but all it needed was a serious de-fluffing and oiling. At the moment I'm making a summer top for my daughter on it. I told her to choose which machine I used, and she chose this one.

    Charlee, what year is your 28K? First World War or 1920s? I haven't yet worked out when the 28K was changed. The earlier models had a larger balance wheel and the bobbin winder was set at the bottom. I prefer the feel of the older ones with the extra weight in the wheel.

    The attachment tin came with the machine

    Muv, mine was commissioned 1914, but most likely made 1915. The manual is dated 1915, and the lovely lady that sold it to me told me that's when her husband's grandmother purchased it. (I now know that Mrs. Elinor Pike purchased the machine, passed it down to Bessie Pike Smith, who passed it down to David Smith, who sold it to me :) )
    Does the spot on yours where the metal tin sits have a wooden cover?

    Hello Charlee,

    No, it hasn't got a metal cover for the side compartment, but the grooves are in the base to take one. I don't know whether it had one and it was lost, or it never had one in the first place. Seeing as it dates from 1940 perhaps this was an economy measure.

    I love the wooden cover on your compartment. My 1916 99K has exactly the same base and case.

    I just love these vintage sewing machines. I really enjoy looking at all the pics you all have posted. I have more than 20 working vintage Singer and Necchi sewing machines. I will try to post some pics soon. I hope this thread will remain open for a while longer so more can post their pics.

    My Raymond. Made in Guelph Ontario in about 1915 as the bill of sale from the T. Eaton Co. was from December of that year.
