    Singer Stylist 457... has a little tension problem right now, but I'm sure that's going to be easily fixed!
    That's a $35 price tag you see on it, made a $20 offer, they accepted, and then seein's how I'm 55, I got the senior discount, so it cost me $18!

    I beg to differ. I have a White 77MG and it weighs upwards of thirty pounds. The Mg body didn't help, much.

    Mine is a Domestic and it is really light weight - I forget 12 or 13 lbs. It doesn't sew yet - I haven't fooled with it much - don't know if it is the timing or the carbon unit not figuring out the bobbin threading. I should shoot some pics of 3/4 size machines soon. Trying to get them cleaned up a bit - look better in the photos you know - girls just have to look nice........
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    The machine is not all I came home with...I found a cast iron "Krusty Korn Kob" cornbread pan, a green box Singer buttonholer (I know...I know...but I didn't have a green box!) Got a great McCoy cookie jar, and another shelf unit for my sewing room!

    Well, maybe some cornbread in the new skillet may help. Or "this old thing?"

    Or to hear you tell it, your sweet other half will just say, "Good deal, baby!! Is that all they had that you wanted?"

    So, after cleaning the race and case on my Singer 201, I started to think if I should have done something similar on my Singer 66-1s. I spent a hour looking for the needed info, and discovered that the machine would benefit on cleaning and replacing the oil wick. This is something that needs to be done on 66s and 99s...unless they are just setting on shelf looking pretty- like mine are now. This may have been talked about before on this thread, but I can't remember it. So, heads up for those that are using their Singer 66 or 99 and have not checked the felt on the oil wick; it may need to be added or replaced.
