Hello, I have only been following this board for two weeks but I am finding you all are incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. Not to mention very enabling of my new found love of vintage machines!
I have found a Singer Model 66 Redeye locally that I want to go look at. Since I did not even know what "redeye" was three weeks ago, I need some help please. Is there a way to determine if the machine was originally electric, or if the motor was added later? And does this impact the value? It seems to me that the machine is not in it's original cabinet so I want to be on the lookout for other potential flags. The fuzzy picture looks pretty good, other than that 70's looking cabinet. But you never know until you see it in person.
Thanks for your help!
