There is no Make or Model name or even a model number? Japan cloned a lot of sewing machines for many years--even machines sold by JC Penney, Montgomery Ward, etc.

SOURCE: I need a users manual for a White Sewing Machine -

I solved this problem by going to a post on FixYa dated 6/4/08 oor 09 by Timetoknit.

The post mentioned a free download of "White's" Manual that is out of print, at White's sister company "the Singer Sewing Company's" website: www.singerco.com It also gave the download steps. The download steps are on my Solution post.

I downloaded the manual and printed it on 7/30/09.

Thanks for being here.

SOURCE: I'm trying to date an old Cromwell DeLuxe Sewing

Hi! I just love old sewing machines and am so glad to hear that you want to use it! (You don't really need to know the age to get started, BTW.) I did a quick search for Cromwell DeLuxe and came up negative--but all that means is that your machine was probably a badged machine. In other words, it was manufactured for a distributor (perhaps a local store) and the distributor put their name on it instead of the manufacturer's name.

Here are two great links to get you started:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/vintagejapansewingmachines/

Many badged machines (and others) were built by Japanese companies (see if you machine has a JA- or JC- number on it) and this site has just loads of great information on these machines, plus lots of photographs.

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/sewingmachinerepair/

This group is dedicated to "keeping classic, mechanical sewing machines in use and dollars in your pocket" --which sounds like a great deal to me! They also have loads of information, including some generic manuals, photos, and great how-to tips.

Email me and let me know how it goes!

Where do I find the serial number or model number for an old treadle type singer sewing machine


Sometimes it is on a metal plate or on older machines it is sometimes stamped into the metal on the underside of the machine. FWIW, older machines there is usually only one number--the serial number. That serial number is associated with a model number:

What is the value of my admiral sewing machine made in occupied japan with serial number a167994


Hi. The value of any sewing machine is purely subjective. Sewing machines were made by the millions and the ones made prior to about 1970 were generally extremely well engineered, constructed of metal, and--with just basic, routine maintenance-- will last for many decades. All my regular sewing is done on machines that range in age from 50 to 90 years.
Machines like yours aren't at all rare (sorry) but there are people out there who do like the old machines. You can look on Ebay to get a feel for how much people are willing to pay for machines like yours.
Sometimes a machine, such as Singer model 221 Featherweight, will become valuable. Quilters love this type of Singer because it's small, lightweight/portable, and has a marvelous stitch. One in excellent (meaning showroom) condition might sell for $400 or $500......but I could find any number of them at garage sales for $25.00 or less! (And there are lots of sewers out there who don't like them because all they do is straight stitch.)
This probably isn't what you want to hear. . . .
