    Went to my cardiologist yesterday, and got a good report. He thinks my pacemaker is working good. It actually records when it needs to help your heart. Anyway on my way home, I stopped to check out a new store and what should my eyes behold?????Yes, a Singer Red Eye in a beautiful cabinet. It was so gorgeous and itin such good shape, I knew it had to be mine. I bought it for $100. Serial number # G6984049. i would like to find a manual for it.

    Great find!

    For a moment there I thought you were going to tell us that your cardiologist was fixing your Red Eye!

    Congratulations! Your machine is a model 66 from 1919. If you would like to pm me with your email address I will email you a bunch of manuals for it.

    all you have to do is visit the singer site- you can enter the serial #, model # and it will tell you the exact (birthdate/place of manufacturing) and you can download a manual for free- or purchase one.
    great find!

    That's terrific! :) I would LOVE to find a Red Eye in that good a shape - especially at that price. Congratulations on a great find! :)

    Here's a pdf manual for it:

    They changed the site around and removed that section from public view. But you can still get to it - just enter 'serial #' in the search box, or start here: http://www.singerco.com/support/machine-serial-numbers

    That's not working anymore :( Now all it tells you is the year your machine was "born/issued"

    Darn, they've changed it again! Luckily a few people downloaded all the information while it was still available. ;-)

    Looks to be a 66 which I think is much better than getting a 127 because of the round bobbin. That is one beautiful machine and the cabinet is wonderful. You really lucked out.

    I bought a treadle just like it a couple of weeks ago and I downloaded a manual off the internet. I also paid $100 for mine but it needed a belt and the presser foot and tension were seized so I took it to my machine repair man and it cost me $170 to get it all fixed but I think it was worth it. I've even sewed a couple of blocks on it. Wooks like a dream. The manual came in handy when I had to wind a bobbin. I couldn't remember how to do it. yours is probably similiar to mine. Go to Singer.com and check for a manual.
