THIS MACHINE HAS BEEN PROFESSIONALLY OVERHAULED, SERVICED, LUBED AND ADJUSTED

This is a fully serviced antique 1917 VERY HEAVY DUTY Singer Model 66 sewing machine. Machine dates from 1917 and was formerly a treadle machine but rebuilt and converted to electric sometime during World War 2 when the sewing machine companies were making war items and there was a shortage of sewing machines. Its pretty rare to find these because in the 1950's Singer had a bounty program of offering high trade in values and then the Singer dealers had to destroy the machines that came in. This Machine has a very powerful Delco electric motor, made by General Motors AKA GM- yes - the car company. This machine is almost commercial grade-- see the video that is sewing through a 1/8" leather belt with commercial nylon upholstery thread -and can sew fast too!!

The 66 model was Singer's best machine and it truly is one of the best stitching sewing machines ever made, Singer advertised them as "built like a watch". Also preferred by tailors and seamstresses during the early to mid 20th century because of its very nice stitching and its ability to do light to very heavy projects. Sews very nice, machine is very well balanced and runs very smooth.

This machine has been completely serviced, comes in a Singer desk (circa 1940's) that the machine folds into when not in use, desk has some chips and finish issues but still looks good and is sturdy (real wood). Has a new drive belt and new bobbin winder rubber wheel

See video easily sewed through a 1/8" thick leather belt with commercial nylon thread!!!! try doing that with a new Singer sewing machine and you would not have it very long LOL : ) And although I don't think it can sew holsters, shoes or saddles, I do know it can sew some thick stuff and should be good for any garment, quilt, or upholstery job. It would have no problem sewing multiple layers of vinyl, suede, canvas, garment leather or jeans

This machine model was Singers all time best seller- very popular, and still used all over the world (a lot were sold as treadle mounted machines), so just about every part is available new from singer including plates. Machine features adjustable stitch length, this machine does not have reverse. Machine has faded with age and some of the chrome has tarnished but really not bad for a 100 year old machine. Runs standard needles (15X1) and drop in bobbins (class 66)these items are very easy to get and available at most stores including Wal-Mart.

$125

I can demo and show you how to use this machine

comes in the cabinet pictured, ready for another 100 years of sewing.
