I've been carting this around for years...Singer Stylist 518
OK, I know...I'm dumb for lugging this thing around. I was given this machine about 10 years ago. I was at a garage sale and it was the end of the day. The lady asked me if I would take the machine..."yeah, sure." I never even looked inside the cabinet. My husband picked it up later in the day along with my other purchases and it was put in the back of our warehouse, with a bunch of my kids' stuff piled on top. I kept saying that I had to get in there and have a look at it, but never did. Then, we moved and it has sat in a storage container for about 7 months.
Last week, my trusty 403A started acting up and I remembered that free machine I had stowed away. I hauled it out and took a look. It's a Stylist 518. It has a metal body, with some plastic on the face. I believe it has nylon gears, but I haven't opened it up to see. I prefer older machines, but, hey, I can't look a gift horse in the mouth. I thought I'd fix it up and give it to my Dau. Anyone know much about this model? I can't find much about it, even on the Singer site.
Here's a Picture: Singer Stylist 518
I'm finding info on the 513 and 514, but not the 518. I'm thinking that maybe this was a school model.
