It's gorgeous ain't it? I've just ordered a new belt for it, and I did a small repair to the left hand drawer frame. Aside from that and needing oiling it's fully functional. Over 100 years old and built to last.

I might rub down this part and wax it as it's a bit scruffy. I'm not going to go too mad though as this is intended to be a working machine.

It was a bit of a bargain at 75.

Wow, my grandmother had one identical to that (in the 80s). I wonder what happened to it!

My mum had one too, in the 60s; I still remember the sound of it when she was using it.

Those would have been very common in years gone by. Around 1998 I worked for a client on the site of the old Singer factory in Clydebank. The site is HUGE and employed thousands of workers, so big it had it's own station. Now it is low rise office blocks and warehousing.

Always nice to see some age on wooden furniture, so a light polish that protects rather than remove the patina sounds a good plan.

While I was cleaning the machine yesterday and fitting the new belt, I realised that I had misread the serial number. There was another digit on the end which I'd missed. That made sense, as when I was trying to follow the manual on removing and replacing the bobbin, and threading the needle, the diagrams looked nothing like my machine. I went back to the ISMACS site and put the full number in and it transpires that I have a 1927 model 66K. By chance I already had the correct manual on my pc. Suddenly, following the instructions became a whole lot easier..

New belt is now fitted, machine is cleaned and correctly oiled, and it sews beautifully.
