    Please help me find the model of this machine,AR880961, Oct.1968 made in Elizabeth,NJ. (I think) What model and also where may I find a book? Thank you for all your help. LOVE reading about all your machines and so happy when someone gets one, it's almost like I get it too. Thanks so much, Marge

    Jackie it is right, the wheel that you think is supposed to be on the belt is supposed to have a tire on it and it will ride on the flat area of the hand wheel it is sitting over. I included a tire in your order and you can put it on the wheel and the winder will work perfectly.

    Sometimes the companies put the regular electric machines in a treadle. Singer had the option of the 301 and the 401 to be treadled. this is a nice find and I would get it if it were priced right. This is a nice find, not many Japanese treadles out there to be had!!

    Post a photo of the machine, are you sure the letters are right? If if is then if you post the photos of the machine I can tell you what it is.

    Like I told you earlier if you took one apart and put it back together and lived to tell about it you did great. As far as I am concerned the 66 has the most complicated bobbin winder there is.

    You did a great job!!!

    Improved maybe?? Check here:

    You are right Miz Johnny, we all thought at first it did say 'Improved' -- then decided it said 'Imperial.' After looking at the list you sent from "needlebar," I am sure it actually said 'Improved Eldredge.' It sure looked like there was a letter after the Eldredge, though. It looked like a 'D.' I wish I knew how old that machine was -- it was sure a cute little machine. The machine had a shuttle long bobbin and quite a few attachments. I told them to post pictures on Craig's List and it should sell pretty easily!

    You also need to have the bolt hole under the handwheel to mount a hand crank, it also helps to have a spoked handwheel.

    Can you buy hand cranks for them?

    My niece wants to learn and someone said that hand cranks are easier for kids so I was thinking of putting a crank on my red eye.
    We just turned a newer Singer 15 into a handcranck. A red eye should be possible. All you need is a spoke wheel I think and the cranck. We bought a replica from online for about $16 or so.

    In this tute they even changed the wheel to spoke first. Ours already had the spoke wheel and I would think your red eye does too. don't you love all the stuff you can find online?
