Presumably models seldom lasted more than a decade in unchanged form so this wouldn't be too much of a problem. The American serial numbers start at AD545389 (1933)and methodically increase to AM696632 (1957).

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).

---------------------------- Date: 06 Mar 96 EST From: Graham Forsdyke ([email protected]) Subject: Contribution/To all I"m just a little bit excited about this. 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.

The Kilbowie two-letter SN system was started in October 1935 with EA 1. Previous to '35 they used a single letter but not in alphabetical order -- or anything like it.

Sorry I could not be of more help ---------------------------- Date: 27 Mar 96 EST From: Graham Forsdyke ([email protected]) Subject: Contribution To Suzy/Becky re Singer dates.

These two machines both have build dates of 8/11/52 (along with 10 other machines on the survey).

You can see that Singer obviously used a standard progression in assigning numbers.

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.

Like Suzy I am rather suspicious about the Singer 800 number dates and also about the 25,000 daily production -- that's over 7 million a year.

I have a lot of Singer records from the Scotish factory and much of it is contradictory.

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.

The factory designation, if it was not made in the USA, followed the model number. There are other examples for the plants in Scotland and in Germany.
