Item Offered: Singer 24-62 CHAIN STITCH Sewing Machine & Case

Cosmetic Condition Machine: 10 - This machine has very minor blemishes but overall the condition is excellent! I rate this 10 because this machine is near imposable to find and is almost never found in this kind of condition!

Cosmetic Condition CASE ONLY: 10 - This is a custom made brand new case and is fitted to the machine. Has a useable drawer and a small side storage slot.

Working Condition: 10 - I have recently cleaned, tuned and adjusted this machine. I have sewn on this machine recently and it is currently working perfectly. The motor dose run strong and has been cleaned as well.

History: I purchased this machine thinking I would keep it forever. I restored it and had the case made. Since buying it I have had occasion to use it a few times. I used it to baste stitch a quilt and I have also done some light piece sewing with it. I have sewn patches on jackets with it also. Itâe(tm)s an awesome baster because the stitches come right out just pull! I am only selling it because I am downsizing my collection and it is the odd-ball machine of the group.

Description: This is an excellent vintage sewing machine. Rare because it was made to compete with the Wilcox & Gibbs chain machine of its day. Singer had little influence in this market at the time. However, innovation and technology did eventually slow Wilcox & Gibbs market share and they were bought out by Singer. Shortly after this buy out production of all home use chain stitch machines (except the childâe(tm)s model 20) was discontinued. This was in the early part of the 1900's and few of these machines are surviving today. Itâe(tm)s great to use for regular sewing or for applications w a chain stitch would be ideal (like quilt basting).

Included Items: Sewing machine, case, foot control & power cord. No manual is present but threading diagram is included.
