    While out "thrifting" today, I ran across this little cutie. It didn't come with any attachments, manual or the foot pedal, appears to be missing the tension knob, and the original cords are frayed and taped. There was, however, a needle and a bobbin with royal blue thread in the machine. I found, sitting next to the machine, a wooden cover which was damaged around the handle. F8366172 is the number engraved on the plate on the bed of the machine. After reading everyone's comments on the board for the past few days, I was inspired to try to salvage her. Does anyone know anything about this machine?

    Looks like a 99k made in 1918. You can look it up on the Singer site. http://www.singerco.com

    Boy I love the confidence you guys have in me!!

    You do have a Singer 99 and it did not come with a foot pedal it has a kneebar that is used for the operation of the machine. Look in the lid of the case and see if there is one there if not I have one here that is in my parts store.

    You have a really nice machine and it will clean up very nicely and you will love using it. It uses the class 66 bobbins the you can find at any fabric store but JoAnns (sound right BFW?).

    If you need the kneebar and the cord for the machine I have them just PM me and we can work up a price. The cord is brand new and with the correct ends.

    Thanks for the help everyone. If I read it correctly, the Singer site lists this machine as a 99K, manufactured from January - June 1918. Looks like 50,000 were made in Scotland. I feel like I'm researching a family tree with all of this research! I hope I can obtain parts and get her working! She's a little rusty.
