Dating a featherweight sewing machine Free onlinesex webcam 2012
Each of the four models of the featherweights were originally furnished with a different motor. All that means is that it shouldn't interfere with radio or T. signals and there should be a three prong plug to insert into the wall outlet.Another distinguishing feature of the 221K4 is it is the only featherwieght model that has R. Sorry I don't have any definitave information about which colors each of the models were painted. The explanation tells us that: the S was the particular assembly line on which the machine was put together the 8 indicates 1981 the 247 indicates the day of the year (Sept 4) the 053 indicates that it was the 53rd machine built that day.This does not make the machine "rare" but is simply an error by Singer when they prepared the historical serial number lists or the data was simply recorded in error at the time of production.

In 1905 some Singer's were manufactured under the name of Date: 23 Feb 96 EST From: Graham Forsdyke ([email protected]) Subject: Contributions/Factory designations There's been some confusion over Singer factory designation codes, some, understandably, believing that E was for England. I am using the word factory to describe a location where machines were either built or assembled.Since your example is for 1981, I will guess the latter.Also, I haven't heard of Singer giving out what appear to be bad build dates on their machines.And there are many serial numbers, mostly the more recent FW's, that Singer is unable to give any estimate of build date on. Obviously in '55 the Black 221K was discontinued and the plant used for 222Ks with only Pale T 221Ks surviving the model change.
From what I read on Fanatics the Singer Co in the USA is dating many machines to the day (allbeit with a few errors).Singer has recently pulled some of their dating and identification information from their website.Here you can look up your serial number and find out when your Singer Sewing Machine was made as well as what model you have.A good example to disprove your explanation would be AK996181 and AL000663 (both of which I own, by the way, and I can tell you they are identical, not built years apart).These two machines both have build dates of 8/11/52 (along with 10 other machines on the survey).
Whether it was given a designating letter I do not know. There were four different models of the featherweight the 221-1, 221K4, 221K5,and 221K7. That is the only model of FW that Singer made with the switch on the light housing, all the others have the switch on the bed of the machine.
