Dating singer feather weight echte ficktreffen Jena
The Singer No 2 was a giant industrial machine with a one-and-a-half-inch-wide flat belt, a machine that no lady and very few men could lift off the ground with ease. Missing from the United States are: Hawaii, North Dakota, Rhode Island, and West Virginia. Tan: Total=10 ES-5 British all with 8/19/61 "birthdate" JE-5 Canadian, "birthdate" unknown White: Total=64 EV-40 EW-2, EY-4, FA-18 beginning with 8/1/63, but the earliest on the list that Singer agrees is a model 221 is 3/3/64.
Both the records held by the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC and my own believe that 1873 is the date for the machine from the SN you give. The following is the breakdown of machines based on serial# prefix: Black American: Total=800 AD-45, AE-58, AF-96, AG-66, AH-109, AJ-131, AK-96, AL-122, AM-77. Black British: Total=108 EE-9, EF-15, EG-10, EH-18, EJ-7, EK-4, EL-6, EM-10, EN-3, EP-3, ER-3, ES-20. The last machine that Singer is able to give a date on is EW070170 with a "birthdate" of 8/6/68.
The data we get from Singer in New Jersey is more frequently incorrect for the British machines than with the American.

From other information in the book I should be able to pin down the date of all K machines if Singer USA do not have the UK information. " Just how faint is that letter A in the SN, Nancy?Have just found burried deep in my archive the definitite answer to thos white/mint-green FWs. ---------------------------- Date: 07 Mar 96 EST From: Graham Forsdyke ([email protected]) Subject: Contribution re DOB of 221K " I have a pale turquoise FW (to me, it will always be mint green) with a SN of F (then a verrry faint "A") 131629. According to the records I'm using which were rescued from Kilbowie when the factory closed, the Singer Co went from EZ to FB without using FA at all.Just before the Russian Revolution 1917 Singer built a vast plant in Russia but after the dust settled it was taken over by the Bolsheviks. ---------------------------- Date: Sat, -0500 From: Jim Wagner ([email protected]) Subject: Different FW models Hi Fellow Fanatics, I was going to reply to Sheila via E-Mail but I thought this may be of more general interest.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.
