Singerlight Repairable??

Of the half dozen or so variations of the Singerlight I have encountered, there is one model that I have yet to be able to disassemble in order to replace the old wiring. The body of the light...

Singer 101 With An Odd Attachment

I recently got an aluminum 101, with a serial # from 1924. It was in a bentwood case (clearly not the original) which had some rough holes drilled here and there to reorient the wiring for a Bakelite...

I'm certain that I'll be able to find a replacement. My question was partly prompted by just plain curiosity, wanting to be a little more knowledgeable. Thanks for checking for me!

I'm looking for a replacement for the light socket on my 201-2. Looking at photos of Featherweight light sockets online they look like the might be the same part. Can anyone confirm that they are, or...

I'm a bit ashamed to admit it, but the ingenuity and cleverness that usually surround my problem-solving experiences (not really!) totally escaped me during my initial efforts to solve the fractured...

JB Weld is a great, great product, but like any adhesive, even epoxy, it requires a good (and reasonable size) mating surface between the two parts being attached together. In my case, the break in...

201-2 Spool Pin

I just got a 201-2 delivered by USPS, and found that in spite of some effort by the seller to protect the spool pin, it was broken off in transit.

Unlike my other machines that simply have a...

That is comforting, and I guess a little confusing. My guess on how appropriate common lamp cord would be was based on the 3 machines I have from that era, which all have cord without the groove....

I am refurbishing one of my 15-91's, and I've found that the wire from the motor to the 3-pin power connector needs to be replaced, and perhaps the wire for the lamp and the foot controller as well....

Sewhandy 20-10 Take-a-part

I just picked up a 1950's Singer 20-10 to give to my wife for Christmas. It may be the only sewing/quilting related item she doesn't already have in her sewing room. It's pretty clean, but the hand...

Cleaning Seat Cover From Singer Cabinet

I got a 1952 model 15-91 in a mahogany cabinet while visiting our kids in Missouri. The cover on the stool is in nice condition, but a little of the vinyl-like surface layer has chipped off on the...

A correction to the last post: I goofed (no excuse) on typing the model numbers for the two knee levers. My curved one has the same number as Janey's curved lever. The difference I found was that the...

I double-checked the fit of my knee lever with the single hardware piece on the end panel of the lid, and definitely neither end of the lever will fit. Perhaps I don't have the original lever, but it...

I just acquired an 1897 28K in a portable coffin-style case. It wasn't until I got it home that I noticed treadle belt holes in the base of the wooden case. I've seen photos of treadle cabinets with...
