    Need help identifying this Singer?

    Hi, I've found an old singer in reasonably fair condition but the seller doesn't know what the model is for this Singer. Neither do I for that matter. Anyone?

    It's a model 99, looks like it's got some wiring issues, but those are an easy fix on these models. Make sure it's got the kneebar! (Those can be a spendy item to buy when you can find them!)

    Maybe aSinger 128 from the 50-ies? It has no reverse I think. ask the seller for the serial number right front on a little copper plate. I think it might be a 3/4 size.

    True maybe 99, which is also 3/4 I think. Nice machine and case.

    Thanks! I was thinking it was a smaller machine, when I first saw the photos.

    I don't have a 99 but sure would like to have this one. The seller has the knee lift and a few other goodies so I'm seriously considering it. The info I've found says it's a smaller version of the 66-16. Cool! I bought a 66 on Saturday! Does the 99 have a drop in bobbin as well?

    Yes, the 99 is a 3/4 size. What are they asking for it?

    The 99 is the 3/4" size version of the 66 ... more or less.

    Anna Quilts, it is a round bobbin machine, the 128 is a shuttle bobbin machine.

    He's wanting to barter, so I'm offering up a 10" Rigid compound miter saw with a laser. Worth about $120 or so..

    It's my saw, my husband has one of his own (we have a relationship where his stuff is mine, and my stuff is mine too.) and mine has just sat basically. LOL

    I think if you traded the saw for the machine you'd be getting the short end of the deal. The seller needs to up the ante a bit. That machine isn't worth much more than $50.00 or so max in my opinion.

    I agree with Joe on the price.

    It's a 99-13; Electric portable with wooden cover or carrying case, knee control. I got mine from http://www.shopgoodwill.com the machine cost me 22.00 and the shipping was 33.74 so it totalled out at 55.74. Mine is in really good condition. I do plan to rewire it because of the age of the wiring. I've seen the 99's there quite often.
