    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)
