Thank you to whoever it was that posted the Singer Co. 800 #  to find out
your machines model # and B-Day.  It has changed but they gave the new #
which is 800-474-6437.

I have two old machines that I have been curious about but never had the
time to do the research.  Well I am pleasantly surprised.  Here's what I
found out.

The treadle machine that I bought at a garage sale for $60 complete with
additional feet, bobbins and the original instruction manual (that is in a
drawer with the pictures of it) is a model 27 born Jan 16, 1911.  It works
well I used it until I found...

My favorite machine that I bought at another garage sale for $15.  The lady
wanted $20 for it but did not have the key to unlock it so she came down,
to cover the price of having a key made.  I took it to a clock shop around
the corner (they had made a key for one of my old clocks) and he made me a
key and didn't charge me a dime.  I use it every time I sew.  Was using it
last night as a matter of fact.  Anyway, it is a model 99 born Aug 4, 1925.

I had figured that I had done good.   But I was kind of wondering...just how
good did I do?  Both machines are in good condition, given their age, both
work well, the cases/cabinets are in pristine condition-no missing veneer
etc.  The decals on the machines themselves, do have some wear on them.
Looks like they were really used.  I am NOT looking to sell these, (I only
own one other machine and that because it does zig-zag and blind hem) but I
am curious.

Is there something like this for Whites?  I have two that I believe are
circa 1940, but I really don't know.  Just curious!
