Singer's Elizabethport, New Jersey plant. The elaborate and colorful design, ability to sew heavy fabrics, high arm clearance, drop-in bobbin, simplicity in threading, quite yet powerful performance makes this machine a truly one of the most desirable collectors items. As per very well known expert Mr. The 66 arrive after nearly half of century of improvements and developments. It ran from 1900 till 1939 with almost no changes.
The Singer 66 was the first sewing machine that produced a near perfect stitch. When sewing well the 66 will out-sew nearly any modern machine through a huge variety of fabrics from linen to lace and a horse blankets. It is simply near perfect engineering but this came at the price. The 66 was one of the most expensive sewing machine on the market costing several months wages.
The 1900 advertisement said about Singer 66 Model built like a watch at the largest and best organized sewing machine factory in the world. Yes, indeed, this Singer 66 Red Eye is rightfully making the claim to be at least a Patek Philippe of sewing machines from either mechanical, aesthetic or reliability prospective.
This model became fondly known as The RedEye or Red Head for obvious reasons - The machine's decoration decals does look like it has exotic eyes. The beautiful decoration made it sought after by enthusiasts and collectors. It is my opinion that this beautifully decorated machine looks like a.Peacock tail which contains spectacular beauty because of the bright, iridescent colors and intricate eye patterns that has a high degree of brightness and precision. It contains an extremely high level of optimum design.
According to a theory of sexual selection, the peacock's tail has gradually evolved because the peahens selects only beautiful males for mating. However, there is no satisfactory explanation of how the sexual selection cycle can start or why the peahens should prefer a beautiful features. This 105 years old beauty-of-the-sewing-machines is Highly collectible due to the very fine cosmetic conditions. I personally would like to relate to it in the Cognac terms - it is most definitely equal to XO Grande Champagne. So, what possibly could be better?
"Patek Philippe" from reliability and engineering stand points and Grande Champagne XO Cognac from the amount of pleasure one would experience just to look at this machine! The paint and decals are amazingly crisp and retained 80% of original decorations intact (relatively to age) with some noticeable at a first glance blemishes on the bed and the back area sides. And in addition to all those vibrant colors and the unparallel ability to sew - you have a complete package of beautiful extremely well functioning machine, equally beautiful antique stand and the set of very.Are now back clamp pressure bar attachments. ALL original attachments so there is no need for. Conversion of the rare back-clampers into more common side-clamping presser bar. The machine has been taken apart , checked and serviced. ALL internal moving parts has been taken apart and removed -the needle bar , pressure bar , thread take up, tension adjustment and sewing mechanisms has been taken apart , clean and polished - if would not be the limit of 12 pictures total you would be able to see how those mechanisms proudly shines displaying it's well functioning parts. I have also completely disassembled even the thread winding mechanism, cleaned and polished every single screw and even all springs and washers. I simply could not do the restoration any other way - It would be such a disservice to this stunningly beautiful and rare machine if I would be taking any shortcuts and worry about all those long hours being spent on restoration. Because anything less than this type of approach would be simply unacceptable for making this Grand Dame of sewing machines to be proud of it's distinguished pedigree. Then machine has been tested to sew both thin and multiple layers of heavy fabrics by using slow and high speed. Machine now sews very well and guaranteed to be fully functional. Just look again on the pics #10 and #11- it sews 6 layers of denim or the thick leather belt. It seems like I can watch this thread winding mechanism in action forever - each turn of the central gear is almost. Hypnotically sending a message - relax and keep enjoying the winding process..
