Question about Singer 132QRFB Mechanical Sewing Machine

30 year old Singer Sewing Machine

Hello....
Off hand I do not know my model number, however it is still made of cast iron and has a couple of broken gears. I would like to have it fixed since it is a good machine and would like to find out if it is cost effective. Thank you for your time. Inge

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.

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.

My Singer model 780 does not pick up the bobbin threat. How do I correct this/


Very old is a relative term. I'm not finding anything under 780 or 6410. So we need to identify your machine. Can you post a picture?

Not picking up bobbin thread is usually one of several things. 1. Wrong needle size, blunted needle, or improperly installed needle. 2. Timing is wrong.

JUST WANT TO KNOW HOW OLD MY SINGER IS I HAVE HAD IT FOR MANY YEARS THE MODEL NUMBER IS CAT-3-120


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 http://www.ismacs.net/home.html. 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 TalkToUs@SingerCo.com.

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

Happy Sewing!

How old is my machine - serial no. V763688 With an attached table and cast iron treadle. ? The Product No. I have put it under is NOT correct - I do NOT know the model no. - only have the above serial no....


Hi, I suspect you wrote the serial number wrong. Here is where to look at the serial numbers and machines years.

The number you wrote is too high for the machines that start with a V. Check again.

Want to find out more about the machine.....


On most Pfaffs of that vintage, the model number will be clearly visible right on the front of the machine, usually 2-3 digits. There would also be a small tag with the model and serial number on it, usually on the right, rear or bottom of the machine.
