Elgin 2468, no manual, it is not making a stitch. Threaded and thread in bobbin.

try a brand new needle. Could also be threaded incorrectly--make sure the needle faces the correct direction. Possibly the machine is out of time (needle reaching the hook at the wrong time to intercept the bobbin thread). Search for: sewing machine timing

As for the machine not sewing, it could be one or more things. You may want to take it for service, especially if it hasn't been used in a while.

What year was the elgin 999F sewing machine made?

Short life of the sewing machine department. 1896 - 1899

Automobiles were once manufactured in Elgin in greater numbers than the city's residents were buying them. There were sixty local owners of "machines" in July 1905. By that time, about 120 vehicles had been turned out by the Elgin Sewing Machine and Bicycle Company (five electrics in 1898), the Elgin Automobile Company (fifteen Winners in 1899-1900), and the Fauber Manufacturing Company (perhaps a hundred Marr Autocars in 190304), all occupying in succession the former Dickie factory in Elgin Heights. This seemingly jinxed southeast end plant was destroyed by fire in August 1904, but its destruction didn't halt the city's output of cars. The Moody brothers built at least three in their machine shop on River Street in 1903-05, and H. F. VanWambeke and Sons constructed about eight "Van" delivery wagons in a barn behind their grocery store at Hill and Jefferson streets in 1907-09.

    Can I put an Elgin machine in a Singer cabinet?

    You probably can but not without doing some (maybe a lot of) retrofitting. Difference in machine footprint will make a big difference. Also, connecting the lifting hardware, etc. adds to the overall difficulty. You could always ask a handyman familiar with woodworking but chances are, the expense will be more than the machine is worth. But, then sometimes nostalgia wins!
