I picked up this Singer 66 which has the coolest motor and foot controller.
Serial number G6969572 dates it to 1919.
There is a wad of electrical tape at the junction where the wires from the wall socket, the foot controller and the motor all meet. Everything works when I plug it in but what should be at that junction? I am sure it is not a wad of tape!
Also does anyone have a source for vintage looking cloth covered electrical wire like what this machine is wired with? I hate to rewire old machines with new looking PVC coated wire :-P
