It is one of our favourite decal patterns as the vivid red really adds an attractive eye-catching quality to this Singer. This Singer model 66 dates back to 1924 by serial number G0588325. Almost 100 years old and this machine is just as beautiful and vibrant now as it was back then.The Singer class 66 models were heavy duty domestic sewing machines that set the standard for several decades, and indeed the Class 66 bobbin and the 66 style horizontal oscillating hook arrangement are still in use on many'new' sewing machines today. When the Class 66 appeared it was considered an engineering masterpiece, able to sew any thickness of fabric from fine silk to heavy canvas. The 66 first introduced the horizontally mounted rotary hook arrangement with drop in bobbins. A system which still survives in so many sewing machines from all makers today. We threaded the machine up and tested its sewing ability, and wow! We sewed the stitches as seen in photos, which does not even begin to speak to the great capabilities of this machine.
The bobbin winder works great. The tension and stitch length knob were easy to adjust and operate correctly. This machine comes with 3 bobbins, extra attachments and rufflers, some original Singer screwdrivers, an oil can, extra tools, and the original Singer 66 manual. The condition of this Singer is remarkable.
The Red Eye decals do not disappoint, they are bright and beautiful. The black enamel shines stunningly and shows some minor wear typical of a machine from this time period. All of the nickel plated metal parts have been polished to shine and show off their decorative floral patterns. See our other listings for stock and Bentwood cases.
