Okay, I was in North Carolina, went to a Flea Market and found a Singer 99 that did work when I tried it out. When I got back to Ohio, I ordered the spoke wheel and hand-crank from Sew-Classic and converted from electric to "no Electricity Necessary". The machine and case were $44.00 and then about $30.00 for the hand crank and wheel and here she is after several hours of cleaning her up and converting her. She purrs like a kitten with a perfect stitch.

She is very pretty

Did you use the tutorial on this site to clean it? I have been reading it, but haven't had the nerve to try it yet

All I can say is, wow, I sure do LOVE electricity! Just can't imagine how many turns on that wheel it would take to make a quilt, haha. But definitely do love those old machines (to look at)

Yes I used the tutorial here plus other information from other sites - oiled/lubricated and used a mild soap on the actual machine (dish detergent, very diluted) then polished her up with car wax.

That is exactly what I want to do, convert a Singer 99 to a hand crank. Have fun.
