Choosing an appropriate replacement power cord for an appliance

I've got an antique Singer sewing machine that I need to replace the power cord on because it's chewed up and cracked. The plug on the cord says "UL 1858.198". Can someone help me find an appropriate cord to use? I'd like to buy a replacement online but putting those numbers into a search engine isn't giving me anything.
And another question: there aren't any capacitors or anything inside this machine that are going to give me any shocks when I open it up, are there?

Welcome to the forums.

The type of cord is not critical but doesn't that cord have an end on it that matches your sewing machine ?

No, the end is actually stripped and tied and capped with the wire that goes to the lamp and the other that goes to the motor.
I just made a purchase for a 14-gauge 15amp power cord, should be fine.
