    What singer is this???

    Does anyone know anything about this Singer? It is about the size of a featherweight, but way heavier. It has a short electrical cord. I could not find any model number anywhere on the machine. I thought it was odd because I didn't know any small ones were made, other than the Featherweight of course.Name:  what singer is this.jpg

    Looks like a chain stitch machine - at least I don't see any easy way to access a bobbin. Maybe a 24?

    Thank you so much! After I read your response, I googled 24--this is a model 24-80. I learned something new today

    I've never seen one like that! She sure is pretty. Do you think you'll be able to get it to work?

    ETA: I just watched a youtube video about this machine and it sure does move right along while sewing.

    I didn't buy it. I saw it at an antique store today. They wanted $50.00 for it, but I was just really unsure about it, as I had never seen anything like it. It was just sitting there, all by itself. No foot pedal, or anything, the cord only stuck out about 3 inches from the machine. If what I saw about the 24-80 was correct; it is a chain stitching machine like pinkCastleDh stated, and I don't believe there is a bobbin area. I may have to go back and pick her up; just because she's pretty. Any opinions on whether I should or not?

    Well DUH... what have you got to lose?

    She's a cutie! Please don't leave her there all alone! She needs a good home.

    Go for it. Since she is at a antique store perhaps you could dicker them down from the $50 price. Would not hurt to try.
