Default Yesterdays acquistions

Yesterday I picked up two uncommon machines/cabinets.
1) 1894 Singer 15-22 with Owl decals
2) 1905 Singer 28K treadle (also included a hand crank)

Both are not in great condition but their not often seen in my neck of the woods so I had to take avantage of the opportunity.

Thank you. Just curious, what is the width of the spread of the legs between the two? Are the same width, but just the top cut out for the machine the different sizes?

Sorry, I'm running out the door to my grandson's birthday party so I'll measure later. But here is a pic of the two together. It appears that just the hole in the top is cut for a 3/4 size machine. Also, note the size difference of the coffin tops.

The irons are the same width. Table tops are basically the same width. The only significant difference is the hole in the table top and the coffin top size.

Thank you. Neat. That is good to know!

It seems like the smaller machines such as the 24 and 28 have the diagonal rather than the lattice woodwork.
