Singer dating serial number Freesexy chat rooms in karachi
From what I read on Fanatics the Singer Co in the USA is dating many machines to the day (allbeit with a few errors).I have written to them from ISMACS requesting this dating information and, if it comes (they're a funny lot at Singer nowadays) it will be interesting to see if there is any info on the K models. and from '74 the new SN system was introduced which was , in effect, a product coding rather than just a number.According to Singer UK it is not possible to date machines to the day until after 1970 when a code was used within the serial number.It could well be that batches of numbers were allocated to various factories on a given day (and this is the birthday we get) and used until exhausted when a new batch would be allocated.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.Jim in Thomaston GA ---------------------------- Date: 26 Feb 96 EST From: Graham Forsdyke ([email protected]) Subject: CONTRIBUTIONS/To Lisa: Re factory designations.

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.I'm going to guess that the base of the machine is shaped like the back of a fiddle and, if so, it's a Singer New Family, not a No 2.
