    I bought this machine today...The serial # is AA723452
    On the site it says 1925, I do not know the model number. The bobbin race or something in that area seems to be jammed.
    It did not come with a bobbin or bobbin case...
    Does anyone know where I can find out any info on this as it appears to be in good shape.
    Thanks,
    Kirsten

    ISMACS is a good place to start looking for information. Website is http://www.ismacs.net/faq.html

    Your machine looks like a Singer model 66 to me. It is pretty easy to purchase a replacement bobbin case for it, and the bobbins are widely available in places like JoAnn's.

    There are also groups you can join that discuss vintage Singer sewing machines. vintagesingers and Singer are two groups you can join at http://groups.yahoo.com

    Oops! I just took a closer look at your pictures, and that is a drop-in bobbin. You are not missing the bobbin case, and I think that rules out a model 66. By jammed, do you mean that you cannot rotate the wheel fully?

    It is a model 66, built on November 6, 1925 in Elizabeth, New Jersey at the Elizabethport factory.

    Here's the PDF file - http://www.singerco.com/pdf/SINGER_AA_nos.pdf

    Not sure where to get the replacement parts from though.

    is is for sure a 66 - a drop in bobbin and no extra bobbin case

    I recently got a 99 with a 'froze up' foot bar - I really globbed on sewing machine oil and worked it GENTLY until it moved then cleaned the oil off and that cleaned it enough so it works fine now...

    you could try that - oil won't hurt anything
    dont' force it

    you can use car wax on the machine but make absolutely sure that the wax has no abrasives and is safe for 'clear coat' finishes

    I cannot rotate the hand wheel towards me...
    Seems like something is jammed up somewhere, just don't know where...
    All help is appreciated...
    Any suggestions on locating parts, history is welcome.

    Check in your area for a local sewing machine repair person. I found a great one in my area. He LOVED my machine (a 201, built in 1939). Told me to never sell it! I paid about $100 to have it tuned up/electrical wires replaced. It runs great. He did grease it up alot though...still trying to work out the extra before I put the expensive fabric thru it.
