Question about Singer Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I have an antique singer sewing machine, model JA728735, made in St. John's sometime between 1924 and 1935. It has the old type bobbins, not round ones. I need an instruction manual.

If you can't get the manual I would appreciate at least receiving instructions on how to thread, insert and remove the old long-type bobbins. Thanks.

Here are all the old Singer manuals. That doesn't look like a Model number, but more like a sequential serial number.

    I have an old Singer sewing maching, black with gold letter/graphics housed in a wooden base with a removable locking wooden cover. The serial number is AK631257. I can't find a model number. There is...

    Chances are it will be the needle in the wrong way round or the wrong type of needle, if you can measure the length of the bed of the machine the metal part, tell me if the bobbin drops in the top or goes in the side and whether or not it is a round bobbin or long bobbin and I can tell you the model and help you further.
