    Which combination of sewing machine and power?

    Here's my dilemma, I can't decide which singer machines to pair up with which power supply.

    The machines are:-

    201 (currently with removable motor - it has spoked balance wheel)
    15 (currently treadled)
    66 (currently treadled)

    I want one machine as a treadle, one as a hand crank and one with a motor.

    My thoughts are veering towards the 201 in a treadle, the 66 as a hand crank and the 15 with the motor (for FMQ) but I really don't know if this is the best option.

    Any advice would be appreciated as to the best combination and also whether it is possible to swap them around.

    Many thanks.

    That's probably the arrangment I'd try for (lucky you to have the 201 with the external motor for this application) and I believe swapping them around should be very simple.

    Thanks PinkCastle.

    I put the motor onto the 15 today and I'm very pleased with that combination. I will enlist OH's help tomorrow to swap the other two.

    I can use my 201k as a hand crank(original combination) or I prefer to treadle it. I have a 99k that I use when I go to TOGAs, it sure is a lot lighter than the 201k.
