    Okay purplefiend, where are the pics, got to see your machines.

    Monopas, sorry you haven't been doing well. I too need to drink a lot of water because of my kidneys. No fun, I like water but feel like I am swimming some times.

    Cari, I completely missed that machine was a hand crank, I should look closer next time, I loved the color and the great condition it looked to be in. Would have really liked it with the HC. Funny, I should pay more attention.hehe Glad you got it at least I can see it at the next get together we are going to have soooooooon, when people can come.

    I'm still learning the navigation here so this is really a repeat. . .

    I'm guessing the date 1920? This is as found- still need to clean it so I can try it out. Came in a wooded box and an old candy box with with metal oil can- very cool looking- and several WG needles! Will be on the look out for attachments. . . Name:  IMG_1883.JPG

    Can you post a couple of pix of the machine, front, back and bottom? That would help a lot. Standard is a generic name that was put on many machines throughout the years. A picture really helps a lot.

    From what I'm learning, this is a pretty rare 201-2 because it's a blackside.
    From 1941, model # AF792970, in its original no 42 cabinet and with all of its attachments (many of which are also blackside) and button holer. I restored both machine and the cabinet.
    It was completely stuck when I got it. Couldn't turn it over with the hand wheel and the motor wasn't working. The previous owner hadn't even looked at in the last 30 years.

    Today it just finished it's first project in a very long time. It seemed very happy to be working again. I'm very proud of it.


    After it's first initial cleaning which shows one of its black pieces, the black scrolled head plate (peaking out just a little is the blackside presser foot lever and you can also see the blackside thumb screw for the needle):

    Really like the stool recover! where are you going to get spool pins? I have two machines that are missing them. Where do they go?

    I got a replacement spool pin at sew-classic. It was just the top spool pin that was missing. The bed mounted one is there. It's black instead of chrome/nickel.

    I found a Wilcox & Gibbs machine with the cabinet and the treadle feet is just like this one. It belongs to a friend. He wants to sell it but not sure what it is worth. How can I find out the value. Only Patent #s that I can see. No serial # It's the curved type machine sorry not sure what to call it. But I know I want it.





    there is no head here, just the cabinet, on the hunt for a pretty working WG to reunite...

    Look on ebay and see what they sell for on there to get an idea. It is hard to say you should have the whole picture of it to look at. Most people will not give you a close estimate because it just depends on opinion. We are not appraisers. What I do is offer what I think it may be worth to me.

    I finally finished reading all the posts on this page just in time for the arrival of my latest aquisition...a Singer 15. Funny thing is during the online auction I thought I was buying a machine without the foot pedal. When I went to pick her up yesterday, I met the owner and said it was a shame that there was no pedal with it but figured I could find one on ebay. He told me to hold on a minute, went back into the house, and came out with the matching pedal. Said he had just came across it recently after the auction pictures had been taken.

    My go to machine at home is a black 15-75 same body as your green 15. Mine looks as ugly as yours does beautiful. Mine is a tank and sews through anything. When I got mine it was rusty and the shellac was reduced to powder. It was a challenge to see if I could make it work. I kind of wondered when I got it if it would be as good as the older 15s. It is. Some day I think I need to etch a pretty design in all the pin scratches... I had to replace the motor on mine so I put on a 1.5 amp. She flys through everthing. I also put on a quick release pressure bar nut. Mine is in a 3 in 1 table which is a place of honor. I hope you enjoy yours as much as I enjoy mine. The more it is used the better it gets. Mine is picky about spools of thread. It likes small spools. i like large. I run thread through a stand.

    The model number on the green machine should be 15-125. The body shape is the same. There are 201 machines with the same body shape. Mine is from about 1957 if I remember right. They weren't made like that for long. It makes that nice looking green one all the more to treasure.

    AM601365 made between 1955 and 1959, like me. December 10, 1956 50000 machines were allocated for this serial number range.

    When I tried to put the foot controller with the machine, I couldn't figure out which side of the cord to put on pin 1 and which to put on pin 3 of the 3 pin terminal. And then I realized I didn't have a power cord to go from the machine to the wall outlet. I've found where I can order this part online but still don't know what to do with the foot controller wire. Anyone know?

    The three pin plug should have just the slightest curve to it. To solve your cord/controller problem, just buy one of these: http://shop.sew-classic.com/Cord-Set...ers-SCE123.htm

    Just connect your controller to the empty cord end and you're good to go.

    Thanks Cari but I still have the problem of not knowing if it matters which cord end on the replacement set would connect to which screws on my controller. (Not sure if that makes sense or not) I did read the download at http://shop.sew-classic.com/download...d=rfdmb4zhmzc3 and it looks like maybe it doesn't matter and if that is that case, then what pin I connect the controller to wouldn't matter either (if I got only the power cord vs the power cord with the attached cord for the controller).

    When hooking up a two wire controller, it doesn't matter which wire goes to which connection in the controller. Is that what you mean?

    Thanks! I ordered the power cord today so now I just have to wait for it to come in and then maybe I can play with my new machine.
