Tipping the scales at 33 lbs. When Singer originally made the 66 it was considered a stoke of genius. It could sew any thickness of material from silk to heavy canvas.
It was the first horizontal rotary hook arrangement with a drop in bobbin. It simplified loading the bobbin, which prior was not the easiest of tasks. What really set it apart from all other machines at that time was the near perfect stitch. Unique to the 66, the back-clamping presser bar.
Our process is very strict and meticulous. Simply put: We pay attention to Every detail down to the brass keyhole accents.
From the front needle bar cover to the bobbin winder assembly the sewing machine head has had every moving part gone through and when necessary degreased, polished, oiled, greased, and even replaced. The sewing machine performs just at it did in 1917 when it was manufactured. The treadle cabinet has had the same meticulous attention given to it. The cast iron base has been repainted with period correct black lacquer paint, and the Singer Emblem on both leg's, have been hand painted with gold leaf, as well as the center piece where it says Singer.
The Oak cabinet has been refinished, and to protect its beautiful finish 2 coats of polyurethane have been applied to ensure another 100 plus years of sewing in style. Please look at the pictures, so you can fully appreciate the amount of time, and attention that goes in to these treadles to ensure we provide our customers with the same high quality experience Singer provided 100 plus years ago.Singer Buttonholer & 5 strait and key templates.
