Does anyone have any information on this old Singer?  I havent' seen the machine up close, but I've been told that the name plate says the following:
Singer Manufacturing Company
Model # Y3839758

I'm searing for site with information or someone who knows something about this thing.  My aunt is having it fixed up for me as a gift (for which I'm truly pumped).  I just wanted to do some research and such.

Thank ya!

We've got an old Singer from 1919 and by using the number that you are talking about you can find out all sorts of things about it.  Here's a few links that will get you started:

http://www.needlebar.com/singdecs/index.html
http://www.singerco.com/support/serial_numbers.html
http://www.singerco.com/pdf/SINGER_Y_nos.pdf

So according to the last singer site your machine was made in 1923 in Clydebank, Scotland!!  Sometimes it will tell you WHERE it was made but I don't think it does that for your model number. I hope that got you on a path you were wanting!

Edited to replace a link

OMG!  You totally made my day.  Thank you so much for putting that effort into your responce!

Now I'm just vibrating waiting for this machine.  I have no idea how to sew yet, but I will someday soon.

Not a problem!! We inherited DH's Grandmothers old singer within the last 2 years and I was just as curious as you  were!  So I had those stashed in my Bookmarks....easy peasy!!  Ours came with the table...so all we need to do is get a belt and a few other things to try and make it work.
