Re: Singer industrial sewing machine

It might be the way you're asking that's confusing the problem. It's simple to remove the hand wheel, slip the belt over the track, and then replace the hand wheel. It really depends on the model of your machine - is it by chance a 328K?

I have my grandma's old Singer machine. Serial # is G8157312. Would like to know how old it is and what is the value.

June 1920

Value is not easy, but they are not worth as much as you probably think it is.

    Needle will not pick up bobbin thread

    Try installing a brand new needle. Rethread the machine from the very beginning. The machine could be out of time, ie the needle and hook timing do not match.

    Hi! I collect old Singers but don't recognize that model number....could it be a part number, possibly?

    For information on old sewing machines, check out The International Sewing Machine Collector's Society webpage at They also have a section devoted to Singers but you can actually call the company 1-800-4-Singer (Have the serial number of your machine ready) (or for Singer Industrials, call 1.877.738.9869). You can also email Singer at

    Let me know what you find out about your machine, ok?

    Happy Sewing!

    I inherited an old straight stitch singer sewing machine

    If you send me a picture of the machine I can tell you what the model is. Is it an industrial or domestic machine, it sounds like it may be an industrial ?

    Inserting needle on old singer machine

    Hi Terry--

    If your machine is 40-50 years old, it might be a Singer Featherweight portable. (If it is, you have one of the very best machines ever made!) On the Featherweights, the flat of the needle faces left (and the needle is threaded from right to left). The bobbin goes in a bobbin case; you'll see a small notch when you look down on the bobbin in the case. That's where the thread goes. I'll email you direct with more information.
