I know it is an American company, but I think Singer is/was a Canadian manufacturing company...if I remember correctly from my Gram's machines markings. But your premise is good...they are tough and were built to last. Very cool find.
Eh...google helps me not. IIRC...made in Canada was stamped on both of them. They were pretty fancy set-ups with a maple table for one and a mahogany for the other. Storage drawers, the unit folded into them and a leather covered bench with storage in the seat. Not sure if that was OEM or a more local manufacture of the wood unit. I do recall the workmanship was as stout as the machines.Oh yeah, and when you folded the top out to get to the machine it made a nice wing shelf for their work.
