The typical set-up of early Singer sewing machine in a treadle stand. The most common class of machine the 127 "vibrating shuttle"(long bobbin) is featured above. Many other class of machines were also available in a treadle stand such as: 66-1, 15-30, 115-1 etc. this page features parts and manuals for all older class sewing machines generally any black machine: 27, 127, 28, 128, 15 class, 15-30, 15-91, 66, 99, 201, 101, 1200, 185, 192K and others also 221 & 301 click on Featherweight 221 for dedicated page.
PLEASE NOTE: Serial numbers, which are normally six digits with letter prefix may help in determining what model you have or part you need. For infromation in determing the approximate age of your sewing machine click on Machine Dating.
How do you determine what model you have??? Good question without a manual, since most older Singer's did not have the model number stamped on the machine. Below you will find the available manuals. Many vintage (old black) Singer machines had the serial number imbedded in the top right portion of the bed of the machine. However they did not have the model of the machine. To help determine your model number or to order a manual and available parts please view the pictures below. I have pictured the features of the machine and have pointed out some main characteristics to that particular model. This should be of great help. Please use our shopping cart when possible, however if you need help e-mail us.sewingmachine221sale@bizland.com

Often we are ask to put a value on these and other older model sewing machines. Due to many variables in the market place we do not value machines.

It had a round knob to regulate the stitch length. Earlier models had no reverse and did not have numbers on the tension dial.
* The first series 66-1 were in a treadle stand (66-3 was a hand crank); it had ornamentation (referred to as green eye) and was made between 1902 and 1906. Early models had a back mount presser foot.
* The 66-1 red eye was made between 1906 and 1923 /1924.
* The 66-4 started production in 1923-1924. The back mount presser foot was changed to the standard side mount.
