    Totally up to you Glenn! :) It's a just a kind of silly thing we girls tend to do...like men naming their cars, we name our machines. ;)

    But YES! I think you should name them! What will their names be?
    Okay then, the Prussian singer will be called Hilda and Grandma's I think I will call her Grandma since I have always refered to her this way. (I am up stairs sewing on Grandma) :lol: Glenn Thanks

    Alrighty then someone was asking about some of my machines so here are the ones that I have uploaded to this computer.

    The ones I have not included in these photos are my Singer 185J, 1870 New Home Model A, and my soon to be acquired Singer 500A. I have quite a few parts machines that I am not even including in the list.

    I have got to have me a hot rod. I like it. When I am not playing with my quilts and sewing machines. I am restoring a 1949 Chrysler Windsor.

    I am fixing to sell my '51 Ford and buy something different what I dont know but I imagine it will be in the late 30's or 40's. I live eat sleep and drink cars and sewing machines along with quilting. :mrgreen:

    And your machine is a side clamp so it will not be a 66-1 I think it is a 66-2 the 66-1, 66-3 were back clamp and also the 66-1 did not have the boss to bolt a motor or a hand crank to.

    But it is such a nice machine!!!!!

    Thank you Billy for all of your help and looking for my bobbin winder.

    If anyone has a spare bobbin winder that would fit my machine or any place I can get one, please PM me.

    What other models could I use for the part? :?:

    After digging through my parts manuals only a 66 will fit a 66. I was thinking a 99 might would work but not so. They use the same bobbin but the casting is different.

    You might get lucky and find a parts machine at a flea market or on CL, or just find the part itself on eBay or here.
