    I was thinking that there were 538,608 Singers sold in 1880. I guess one slipped by me when I wasn’t looking.....

    Thanks Rodney. The pink ones aren't rare but they don't show up as often as the blue or tan ones. This one is exceptional. After I put it back together I did the test stitch out and it went through 16 layers of quilting cotton with a size 12 needle with perfect stitches. I have a pink Riviera too, it's a little older than the Selectomatic.Name:  S5031188.JPG

    Domestic model 999M freearm zigzag

    Domestic model 999M freearm zigzag. Bought it yesterday for the low, low price of $5.00 cash.

    Evidently sold under several nameplates such as Nelco, Singer, Domestic, and White model 999 or 999someletter.

    Made in Taiwan instead of Japan, but seems like a good 1980-ish machine, similar to my Kenmore 6 but has more stitches. Takes Singer low shank style attachments. Some of the factory attachments came with this but some are missing. I haven't popped the cover to see how much plastic, but a YouTube of the White version said only a couple plastic pieces.

    Download the manual free from Singer support site. :-)

    (catching up on my reading) This is regarding that White treadle cabinet that was "antiqued" green. May or June 2014 post)
    I was a kid in the '70s and my mother "antiqued" some old furniture that was already ugly and painted. Those kits came in that colonial type colors. These are what I remember, because I was with her at the store when she picked her colors: that green, a slate-ish blue, a brick red, a harvest gold, and something like a light-oak tan. You painted, then rubbed the antiquing glaze over it as the second step after the paint had dried.

    Domestic 999M cams

    fyi on the Domestic 999M cams --- "We are plastic, if you please. We are plastic, if you don't please. " haha

    But the machine hasn't been used much at all, and I am sure I will get my $5 of use out of her. Has that white grease on the gears, too, doesn't it?
