My husband's uncle always described anything that ran smoothly as "It runs like a Singer sewing machine." Have to admit I have heard that from numerous people in my life.

must have a really big noisy sewing machine at their house... I can't imagine a sewing machine that runs like a Massy Ferguson combine.
I just ran across this ad and was going to post it here! Some people are ridiculous!

As I recall, I once had a sewing machine that ran like a tractor. Got rid of it. LOL

Most of the time they are referring to how smooth it runs, I have heard this in the old car hobby all of my life and that is what most are referring to.
