    Red face I think I hit the Jackpot - what do you think?

    Found a Singer 66- on Craiglist for $20. She is AL 088371 -or- AL888371.
    She must have been stored in a very dusty space. She was full of dust and spider webs.
    I cleaned all that out and oiled her and she has been sitting for about a month.
    She has a cherry cabinet and runs a little stiff, but I am working on her.
    Need to print a manual. Tell me what you know about her.

    Went to a yard sale back in the summer and bought this bolt of
    black & white for $5. Washed a piece and no shrinkage.
    I think it is poly/cotton blend.

    At Goodwill last Thursday bought the tub of (39) thread
    (red, dark gray, & white) on wooden spools for $2. and
    all the fabric (I have washed) for $2.

    Jackpot - All this for $29.

    If it's the 888 number, then it's a Singer 66, number allotted November 12, 1954, manufactured in the Elizabethport plant in Elizabeth, NJ. 088 would be a model 15, September 23, 1952.

    I have downloaded several different manuals for the 66. If you pm me with your email address I'd be glad to email them to you.
