The table summarizes the machines made by Poitras, indicates the serial-number prefix used (if any), and the last column shows whether parts may be available from General Manufacturing Co.

The format of Poitras serial numbers is X 11 22 3333. There are two possible decodings of the number, depending on when the machine was made. Usually the numbers themselves made it obvious which decoding is applicable.

  • X is the prefix from the table below, 11 is the month, 22 is the year, and 3333 is a sequential number.
  • X is the prefix from the table below, 11 is the year, 22 is the week, and 3333 is a sequential number.
