Here's a review for the 834.
http://zigzaggers.typepad.com/zigzaggers/2008/07/singer-stylist-834.html
Although it mentions you cannot raise and lower the feed dogs, you can change the throat plate to cover the feed dogs when you don't want to use them.
I couldn't find any reviews for the 518. I think the higher the number, the newer the machine although I may be wrong about that! I have a Singer Stylist 416.
I would look at how easy and expensive it is to get replacement parts for both machines before making your choice.
This is a good site for Singer Stylist parts. http://www.tandtrepair.com/index.html
Why don't you email the guy who runs it and ask him what his preference would be?
Hope this helps, Hazel

Where can i find the serial/model number of my singer sewing mahine purchased about 1970 I am trying to locate a user manual


Look for a plate on the back of the machine, side, bottom or call Singer at 1-800-4singer and ask them. You can also go to their site at singerco.com and download your manual for free, once you know your model number. Isn't there a name on the machine, like stylist or something?

Bobbit thread on my Singer Stylist 457 will not catch


Pull the slide plate open and watch the hook (the rotating part under the bobbin case). It should move around with no hitch.

If it does not turn, it has a broken gear. The model 457 has a vertical shaft gear that breaks and it's easy to replace.
