    auction win

    I got this at an auction for 12.50...Singer #AJ861168 I have no idea how to wind the bobbin as it looks like a bullet. Also it has a plate missing but it does run. Any help would be great. I don't know how to add pics!

    Serial number shows it is a Model 128 made 1950. You can get a manual online at the Singer Sewing Machine Co. website for free (download). Those are good little machines. Good for you!!

    Oooooohhh I LOVES me some 128's. From the 50's is most likely a 128-23 in "godzilla" finish.
    Would love to see pictures of it, and I Know we can help you make it run and work well. I love all of mine (I have 4 complete ones and parts of a 5th)

    Great auction find!! And so cheap too! I want to go with you next time!
    Warning! If someone comes to your door telling you they are from the government and they're checking to see how bad the ticks are in your area, and then tell you to take off your clothes and dance around so they can check for ticks.... DON'T DO IT!!! This is a scam! They just want to see you naked! I wish someone had told me this yesterday, I feel so stupid.
