Guess what I just found in a packing box!?! An old Singer in a bentwood case! It belonged to someone in my husband's family. I contacted Singer and they tell me it is a 99 and was manufactured in New Jersey on Feb1, 1928.
I haven't plugged it in yet (a bit scared to before I have her checked out) but the parts move smoothly by hand. There is a knee control attachment as well.
Anyone here use a vintage machine routinely?
