Usually, a good dose of machine oil will usually loosen up a locked up machine. It's worth a try.

Can you give me any idea of the value of a Singer Manufacturing Company sewing machine, G2775438, with cabinet? Also, any idea of the year it was made?

The G2775438 was built in 1913, according to the Singer database: . This serial number is for a Model 66 (built after March 19, 1913). The value depends on the condition and the specific cabinet and accessories that are with the machine. A worn model 66-1 with a basic cabinet is ~$50. The higher end cabinets can raise the price to $125. (Those were the prices ~10 years ago.) Someone wanted $175 for an advertised good condition model 66-1 with a really good cabinet on Etsy a few years ago.

I hope this helps.

Value and age of Singer Sewing machine?

Singer Sewing Machine Company Serial Numbers

If it is the K number, there were 20,000 machines made. So, the likelihood is that there are still a lot of them around. Value is very subjective based on several things including the physical and mechanical condition, accessories included, rarity of the model, etc. FWIW, it seems that the wood cabinets really don't appear to add much, if anything, to the value.

Friend died. Has this machine, how much would it be worth? how do we tell how old it is?

First, you'll need to find out the make and model of the machine. After that, it's a matter of determining what physical and working condition it's in, whether the manual and what accessories are included, whether it has a carrying case, etc. Price is mostly subjective since it is usually based on the make/model, age, condition, usability, accessories, location, and overall public demand. Used sewing machines can be priced anywhere from $1 to thousands. Older Singer sewing machines are very common so the prices are generally lower for lack of demand unless it is a specific model, ie the Featherweight is coveted for its transportability and stitch quality. Machines in cabinets are usually more difficult to sell, etc. However, if it is something like a Bernina 830 Record, an Elna Jubilee or Grasshopper, or a Husqvarna Class 10, it could be worth more because of its desirability.

However, some sewing enthusiasts just want a good, solid machine that works.

You can probably search the internet for similar machines that have sold or are listed for sale to get an idea.

What is today's worth of my 1942 antique the Singer Manufacturing Co sewing machine-good condition with its case too? And who wants to buy it today?

There are still a lot of older sewing machines being used today and some are very coveted by their owners. Featherweights are very popular with quilters. The price? Well, it's probably whatever someone is willing to pay. Check out what's sold on eBay.

Serial numbers lookup

If it is a singer that model was made in 1948. The serial number says that the machine is a very desirable "Featherweight" model 221.

To make sure that it is a Singer Featherweight check to see if it has a fold up bed extension. Also there "221 or 221A" should be on the side in on a small brass plate.

If it is in fair condition it could be worth $200 to $400. The price depends on color and condition but even 221's in poor condition are very saleable.
Good Luck

How to put a singer style-mate 347 into a singer cabinet

There are these things called sewing machine hinges. They have a round fitting that slip in to the cabinet and a shaft that fits into the machine itself. I've seen other styles as well. Examine your singer cabinet for 2 circular holes near the back of the spot where the sewing machine hits. You'll need to measure those holes. then find the correstponding holes on the sewing machine casting. You'll likely need some set screws as well.

Here is an etsy listing for a sewing machine hinge that someone has made a steampunk necklace from. LOL Really. At least it's a good photo of what a hinge looks like.

Approximate value

Elaine. AH882832 is NOT a model number... that is the serial number. First you need to identify the the model of the machine. You do that visually. Go here and follow the instructions.

Then you have to determine condition. Clearly a machine that has been well used is rusty and the decals all worn off is not going to be worth much. More elaborate decals tend to be more desirable. But basically most people want it to run and sew perfectly. Of course the more accessories/attachments and manuals you have the better.

What would a singer cat B.T.7 serial number 2196382 good condition with wooden carring case be worth, running condition

Cat B.T.7 is the model of the motor, not the machine. They were used on a variety of older Singers. You probably have a #99 or #66.I see them at garage sales for $25 or so.

30 year old Singer Sewing Machine

Cost effective is a matter of choice. For instance, if you like this machine and it costs $200 to repair,then it is worth it. The machine you could buy new for $200 would not be as good a machine as the one you have now. However, if you are thinking of upgrading(spending more and getting more features),wanted to do a better job of sewing jeans and sheer fabric without puckering, then you might consider buying new. See, it is purely subjective.
If you just want to know if the repair job is more than the replacement value of the machine then it is not worthwhile. More than likely your machine, in good working condition, has a value of about $50 but the repair will cost at least $100.
