    More importantly that number tells you what the machine is-- a model 66! The manual is available as a free download online, here:
    www.a1sewingmachine.com/manuals/66.pdf

    With it being made in 1910 I would venture a guess that it has back-clamping feet, unless someone changed the pressure bar to one that accepts side clamping feet, somewhere along the way. I have a 1908 66 that uses back clamping feet and that works for me! I have read (mostly here) that those feet are harder to find than the side clamps, probably because so many later machines all used the same side clamps.

    Not sure what you mean by needing a thread holder. Is one of the thread guides broken off? You can probably find the part online, or maybe Billy can hook you up.

    Enjoy that cool machine!
    I think that machine is a 127, manufactured Jan 6 1920. Not a 66.
    As to the thread holder, Billy may have one. If not, there are online stores for vintage parts. Or you could just use a thread holder stand.
    I went strictly by the serial number and what the Singer site said it was. But the serial number chart has been known to be wrong. If we could see a picture of the machine it would quickly be cleared up. The 127 would have the front-to-back shuttle covers across the bed, and the 66 would have the bobbin cover that slides open to the left of the needle-- one cover only.

    I think this has been answered correctly, but this is a Model 127, born January 6, 1920. Here is your manual http://www.ismacs.net/singer_sewing_...ls/127-128.pdf

    I think what you need is a spool pin for the thread to sit on? Billy sold me one for my 127. PM Billy to see if he still has the spool pins.

    Here is one copy of a manual -- short but has most necessary information. http://needlebar.org/main~nb/manuals/white/index.html

    I will post a second site I liked better too.

    Nancy

    Actually, I just realized the manual is the same from both sites! From Needlebar. http://www.scribd.com/doc/16496561/W...ary-Directions
