    Okay here are pics of my vintage sewing machine. This was my Moms and the first machine that I learn how sew on.
    Billy on what page are your directions for cleaning this machine.
    I would love to get it in working order. Also is there a way to find a manuel for this machine? The number on the number plate is G4641377. The veneer is gone from the outside of the lid and on the side tops. It was so cracked and most missing anyway, that I removed the little pieces. I also need a belt for this one. It is totally manual no motor.
    It has not been used in a very long time. I am sure it needs cleaning from the inside out.
    Please help!!!

    Oh Chamby that one is so pretty! NOT billy but I use Liquid Wrench to clean machines. You can date it at
    http://www.singerco.com/support/serial_numbers.html
    and there should be manual online somewhere. I know I got one for my 127 free online.

    Thanks. From the link it looks like my machine was made in New Jersey around 1916. I am so glad to know that my machine is this old. I would actually like to know how to get into the parts of the machine to clean it completely.

    there's a screw on the facelplate that you can undo to get in there to clean and basically all the little holes are for oiling....if its metal and moves oil it! Don't forget to clean underneath too. Hopefully Billy will post before long on the cleaning and that will tell you more.

    I have searched on line for a free manuel to the above machine. I need the model number. How do I find this? The serial number is G4641377

    Its a Model 66 and it was allotted on May 3 1916 and 50,000 of them on that run. Did you ever get the manual? if not I can post the link to the manuals for them.

    Chamby, your machine is a model 66, that number was allotted on May 3, 1916. :)

    You'll find a free manual download on this page:

    Enjoy your pretty new baby!! Reading thru this thread you'll see where Billy tells how to clean and polish....and you can get and apply new veneer if that's something you want to do!

    Parts for that machine are still readily available at you local sewing repair shop and the Singer dealer. Or you could look around on ebay.

    To clean it I would pull all of the plates off and give all of the mechanicals a good cleaning then take a NON PUMICE hand cleaner like GoJo to clean the exterior finish using plenty of cotton balls and Q-Tips working in small areas at a time. Take a roll of paper towels to clean off the hand cleaner as you go. Then SemiChrome or Mothers Mag Wheel Polish for the plated parts. go back over the machine and oil it up real good then put the parts back on and your ready to use it.

    I will do an in depth tutorial on how to clean a machine with photos and all this weekend so hang in there.

    "I will do an in depth tutorial on how to clean a machine with photos and all this weekend so hang in there. "

    That's what I am waiting for, so I know I am doing it correctly. I will be out of town starting Monday for a week but when I get back I hope I can get cracking on it!

    I decided to let the Stratford machine slide for now...evil eyes were upon me for even thinking of bringing another machine into this house....LOL! I am hoping that I can get hubby on board with it when he sees what I do with the RedEye. ;^) You never know maybe they will drop the price on the Stratford to $10.
