Tacony is a trade name and not the make, the name took over from Montgomery ward when the stores where in business, they were taken over by Sears and now owned by the Tacony group, the chances are your machine was made by one of the major manufacturers such a Juki,Brother, or one of many others, the best thing to do is to take one of your needles to a dealer to match it up, have a look all over the machine, you may find a manufactures name somewhere, not good chances of getting a book.

How do I find the model number for my Singer sewing machine? The model number is not on the machine. The serial number is B684078. It was made in the early 1900's.

  1. 1990 - present. For sewing machines manufactured since about 1990, look for the model number on the handwheel side of the machine near the on/off switch or the electric cord receptacle.
  2. 1970 - 1989. You will find the model number on the front panel of machines manufactured in the 1970s and 1980s.
  3. 1960 - 1970. ...
  4. Before 1960.

Singer Portable 221K1 EF285029 what is the date of manufacture

The EF285029 serial number was assigned to a 221K sewing machine after Aug 17, 1949. The machine probably stayed on the assembly line for several months.The exact date of the build can't be determined since Singer assigned 10000 serial numbers for the model at one time. However, Singer didn't add another batch of serial numbers to the 221K production until November 1949.

See for the details.

I hope this helps.

Can I get a zipper foot? I can't find mine.My machine is about 16 years old.

Contact the manufacturer of your sewing machine on their website. Look for Support. Give them the model number and serial number of your machine and they should be able to help you.

Or try searching eBay for your make and model number of sewing machine add +zipper to the search term and it should bring up anything with zipper in the description.

Looking for singer sewing machine manual g2048733 I believe it is 1911

The g2048733 is the serial number and was built in 1912, actually. (1911 is not the model number.) To get the manual, you need the model number. This should be on a plaque on the front of the machine; it may be just above the base on the belt side. (Singer made 40 models as of 1900.) If the plaque is missing, contact 1-800-4-SINGER (1-800-474-6437) to translate the serial number into a model number.

With the model number, you can get a manual here: . Here you can download or purchase manuals depending on the machine.

If you add a comment with the model number, I will be glad to provide the direct link to the manual. I hope this helps.
