Lookee Do you have a nice old Singer treadle cabinet with perhaps a beat up old Singer in it? is a chance to change out the machine to one that is a real nice looker with pretty nice decals. It is not perfect but it has been around since being commissioned for manufacture on January 2, 1919 at Elizabethport, New Jersey so a few minor dings and t can be excused. This is the popular Redeye decal you have seen many times before but this one is in nice condition. Being a treadle head only, t is, of course, no motor or foot control.
is the good part. I have completely cleaned, oiled and tested this machine. It is ready to go right out of the box but it does need a cabinet to be installed in (such as an old treadle). I can supply a reproduction hand crank if that is how you wish to operate the machine but that would be in a separate sale. It uses standard 15x1 needles and class 66 drop in bobbins - both available everyw T is no manual with the machine but I can email the winning bidder either a pdf file of a manual or refer you to a website w you can download one.
In the interest of fairness, I must tell you that this is an early model 66 so it has the rear clamping attachment point. These attachments can be found on ebay from time to time
