    Default Adding a light to a singer 99-13?

    I have a singer 99-13 that came with no motor so I bought an after market motor to use with it. Is there any way I can put a light on it without having another cord or damaging the finish/decals on the machine? It would be 3 cords I am using if I add a light.

    I am guessing there is a "junction box", maybe under the motor, where the wall plug wires, foot control wires, and motor wires all meet. If so, and there's enough room in that area, and an entry point for a light wire, it can be done.

    If you can post a picture of your current setup that would be helpful.

    Also the 99 takes a non-standard bolt/screw to attach it to the machine, so if you buy a light make sure you get the proper screw.

    There is a light that is supposed to be for the 99-13 at https://www.sewingpartsonline.com/li...g-machine.aspx Personally, I like a light like these - https://www.amazon.com/JANSANE-Light...882127&sr=8-43 - for old machines as it is magnetic and I can move it from machine to machine or front or back. There are some similar that need to be mounted with some sort of adhesive (for plastic machines) Both of these links have plugs.

    Are you using the original knee controller? Which motor did you get? Does it have an outlet plug?

    We like pictures. In order to post pictures on Quilting Board, you will probably need to reduce or compress the picture to a file size that is smaller than 2MB. How to post images can be found at https://www.quiltingboard.com/attach...020-01-17-.pdf
    Don't forget to scroll over to the far right to find and click on the "Upload" button.

    I have found that only the big red "Reply" button or "Quote" work to give me the paper clip icon to work for adding pictures.

    Some additional info regarding reducing images at post #4 and images for the scroll and upload button can be found at #5 of quilt block ID?

    Another way to post pictures can be found at 2021/2022, 2.5 Birthday Swap
    And how to use an ipad to post pictures can be found at Uploading photos

    Or simply - Make sure pictures are smaller than 2MB
    Click on red "Reply" button
    Click on the paper clip icon
    Click browse - choose picture/s. (only 5 allowed per post)
    Once they show up as being loaded, Scroll over to the right side and click on "Upload"
    After the pictures show up as being attached, you can close that window and go back to the screen to finish posting your post.

    They are neat. One of the guys got one for one of the machines at work and told me it was a 'sewing machine' lamp. It is nice to be able to adjust it to where you want it and with the vintage machines you can move it someplace else if you need to. I think I got a different one (got two ) but they did not have the adhesive mounts.
