    Glenn you said your 66-1 and I remember someone saying that they had a 66-6. I have a 66, how can you tell the difference between and how can you tell what the third number is? Kathie
    Kathie the 66-1's were made between 1902 and 1906, have back clamping feet and are treadles.

    The 66-6's were made between 1921 and 1931 with side clamping feet and are electric.

    There was also a 66-3, hand crank, back clamping and a 66-4 - side clamping treadle. Also, a 66-5 - side clamping hand crank.

    The 66-8 thru 66-24 are all side clamping and starting with the 66-14 they had reverse too. I had a chance to get 2 different 66-16's at different yard sales this weekend and passed on both of them. They were both electric of course, very nice - both had all the attachments and manual. I wish I'd of picked one up, but I didn't want another electric 66, I already have a 66-6 I saved! Although, it would be nice to have a 66 with reverse!~

    Kathie, Nancy answered your question before I could get back to you. Nancy is wonderful and full of information. She is great!! She gave you the same info I would have given you. Glenn

    Does anyone have information on Singer hand crank machines with serial numbers starting with NL-K
    I heard these may be remakes. I could not find information on the web about this serial number.
    The two I have seen are in really great condition, leading me to think they are remakes and not old machines.

    I know part of this answer...the 66 is a regular full size machine whereas the 99 is 3/4's of the 66.

    at least 4 of them look like chainstitchers like the Willcox & Gibbs I want... I would love to see if our resident brains know what these are, they are just so neat to look at :)
