Singer 66 (1914)

I can generally see thru the grime to determine if the machine can be saved and this one had an OK look to it.

I oiled it, plugged it in, and the level of quiet running is just amazing; smooth as silk!

I'll do a slow restore and am only disappointment that it has no reverse otherwise I would call it a keeper.

Finished the Restoration, had to buy the bobbin cover new, every one of these things is missing the bobbin cover, what - up?

I have the stand making down, they are not pretty but especially in this case because Singer didn't put the convenient 4 manufacturing posts underneath it really needs something to sit on. The base is attached with drops of silicone sealer in the corners and so is easy to remove.

I'm going to give it a try now that its ready!
