To get to know your sewing machine better, you need to find its model number. How can you do that?
Every sewing machine has its own model number by the help of which you can identify a Singer machine, find suitable parts and tools for it.
Sewing machine models manufactured before the 1960s have their number carved on the front panel on a small plate.
You can also watch how such old vintage sewing machine works here:
Singer sewing machines manufactured in the 1960s have the model number on the front panel near the stitch length controller (above or below it).
Sewing machines from the 1970s and 1980s have the model number written right on the front panel.
In the sewing machines manufactured since the 1990s, you can indicate their number on the side panel near the on/off button or near the power cord receptacle.
On the website ismacs.net you can find a database of model numbers created by collectors of vintage Singer sewing machines. There you can find out when the sewing machine and its model were created. Also, the model number of old sewing machines can be identified by the way the machine looks.
Now you know more.
