    This is my brand new Singer Red Eye born on November 3, 1920. My husband found her at a yard sale for $15. All the parts seem to be in working condition. We are working on refinishing her parlor cabinet as close to original as possible. If anyone who reads this can forward information or send links I would thank you.

    Janetter- that RedEye looks almost new! Fantastic find. Would you share a pic of the closed parlor cabinet?

    videos about cleaning and oiling your vintage sewing machine
    Muv has some real nice videos - not the same machine as yours but the principles apply - you do not have to disassemble your machine to get it fixed up and working right. Those are a nice simple machine and you should be able to very quickly get it in top working order. Muv has 9 videos on Utube - all time well spent watching.

    Glen has info on cleaning up the cabinets. There is also a very old book called 'The Furniture Doctor' by George Grotz - might be of help on the cabinet - if NOTHING else that book is a fun read.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    Was trolling CL Friday evening and saw a yard sale that listed an "antique sewing machine". Hmmm, you know how that goes, it could be anything. But I arrived first thing in the morning and found this little old Singer 99 in a bentwood case and kneebar. It went home with me for $20. It needs some TLC and is nothing really exotic or special, but 99s are sweet. From the serial number it seems to have been the 38th model 99 off the line in February 1928.

    You are very blessed - you have the knee lever!!! I think you will really like that little 99. I like it that the 66 bobbins are compatible with a Singer 403 or 503!!!

    Sewmor Model 606

    This is my latest "save", another Japanese clone. She is very, very clean top and bottom but is missing the spool pin and bobbin shuttle. After an oiling I did connect her to a foot pedal assy and briefly gave her a run, she runs very smoothly. There wasn't a case cover and one of the cabinet hinges is broken. And I know she will need rewiring, both the motor wire and the light wire have gouges in them.

    The case was covered with that sticky cabinet lining, underneath is the original blue covering. I will likely find a cabinet to put her in.

    The badge on the machine says model 606. After a internet search I can't find much on her.
