Hi, I have joined the crowd and purchased a FW. Mine was made in Elizabeth, NJ in 1946. It has a scroll face and the model # 221-1. My problem is I can't get the light bulb to turn. Very hard to get at as the whole thing is welded to the machine. The switch to turn it on is the same one to start the machine.
Also have another question, a corner of the case is damaged. The black cover is gone & you can see the wood. How can I repair this. :?:

Some of these are aren't the standard screw in type, some are an automobile style that you push in and turn a 1/4 turn counterclockwise. HTH's

The light bulb doesn't turn! Push in on it, and twist, it should come out. It's a "peg" type of bulb as opposed to being "threaded".
As for repairing the case? Someone else would have to tell you that...I'd have no clue other than recovering the whole case.

Help--Where is the Singer 327k serial number. I have looked everywhere and can see lots of part numbers, but no serial number.

Underneath, left-hand side, part of the base/frame.

If you don't see it on the id plate top front right, then it most likely is underneath on the left-hand side under the bobbin area on the metal frame stamped into the metal. Look for number that starts with letters.

I have a beige/brown 237 in a cabinet and I love it. See those two little holes to the right of the presser foot? That's where I attach my seam guide and it keeps my seams straight. My new plastic machines don't have the little holes. boo hoo

The bobbin shuttle is not for this machine....too long. It has tons of attachments probably not for this machine either. Patent dates on the plate say Dec 5 1882; Sept 22 1885; July 19 1887; Aug 21 1888; Jan 13, 1891.
Here are a couple pics:
Do you have a length I could go by? I have a couple machines with shuttles (none of them the size of the one that came in the puzzle box.
Also, I looks to me that some of these attachments are bent. At least it looks that way to me! The puzzle box is quite a piece of workmanship! It has places to insert attachments so they stay in place. Just wish I knew what belonged to this machine and what doesn't. There are tons of machine needles...again, not sure if they fit this machine. Look pretty small in my opinion. Also there is a plate that is narrower than this machines plate. Looks like it could fit my Davis. No manual for this machine, so will be looking for one. And the tension looks incomplete also. Need pictures of this to determine for sure.I think I forgot to say earlier that my 27 dates 2-6-1905!
Hope to find time this weekend to take a look at the 66 I have ...a 1926 date.
Randa, you can Google the part number stamp/imprinted in each part and type singer attachments after each number and 'usually' it will tell you what it is and then which machines they will work for. Hope that works for you.
