Referring back to your vintage Singer, you answer a series of yes/no questions about your machine's features.Based on your answers, the online form jumps you to more identification questions, until eventually you arrive at one or more possible models.Several parts are missing, it's not in great shape, and it's basically non-functionalbut it still is a wonderful piece of family memorabilia, and I love having it in my home.My flat screen TV usually lives on top of the Singer cabinet, so I look at it every day.
Perhaps someday I'll refurbish it, and when that happens, it will be important to know a little more about the machine.
Thanks to Singer's recent 160th anniversary celebration, I was able to pinpoint my antique machine's model year by entering its serial number into Singer's online database.
Using this identification form, I narrowed my Singer's model down to 27/28 or 127/128.
Based on certain factors, I think it's most likely a model 127/128.
Several years ago, I was given an antique Singer treadle sewing machine that has been passed down through my family for a few generations.I had no idea when it was manufactured or its model number.
