    And once more again I put almost the entire description in the Title section. But again this is a Singer Model 66 Sewing machine made in 1927. It is pretty easy to look this up going by the serial number.
    It is complete and works I think although the treadle belt is broken and it could use some oil. The treadle works well.
    One of my favorite things about these is how the sewing machine disappears into the stand and becomes a table. This one appears and disappears well.

      you probably can't fine a belt anywhere, measure it and go to a autozone and get a belt from there.
    12. fortapache fortapache, 6 years ago
      Thank you very much for the suggestion jgarwood.
    13. kpgreg73 kpgreg73, 6 years ago

      I'm becoming a sewing machine geek but like you I'm scared of actually using mine hehe

      Gorgeous! I recently got a table very similar, but mine only has 4 drawers, no fold out. Would love to find a Singer machine for it, the one that was on it was a Universal and was converted to electric :(

      YouTube gas some useful video clips for instructing us on how to get things working I still have tension issues but it is stitching now?
    20. fortapache fortapache, 6 years ago
      Thank you very much Joy B. I see a lot of machines with no tables. Not sure if they would fit in table not built for them.

      Thank you again kpgreg. What I need first is a lubricant to loosen it up.
    22. kpgreg73 kpgreg73, 6 years ago
      I just used machine oil and hot soapy water was all I used to clean the paint work up as for the chromed pieces I took as much of it off the machine that I could remove and soaked them in white vinegar and baking soda with hot water then scrubbed with steel wool. You may need what we call CRC to loosen the workings up CRC is a lubricant spray, part oil and part diesel?? Or something similar it smells like diesel though. After I gave it a lot of oil and grease its now ticking over nicely. These machines were built to last I love how they are so old and we'll built the technology for the time is amazing. Happy cleaning
