Singer 185J - odd cover and base?
 
I have a beautiful Singer 185J which I bought on eBay a few years back. She's in perfect condition other than she came without a belt and her green bobbin tire is pretty worn out. I've looked high and low and can't find a photo of another one that came in her particular case. It almost looks like a case for a FW but it has the latches on either end rather than the front. Has anyone else come across a 185J with this style case?

I couldn't see your photos, but I have a 99 that came in a small case, top lifts off, latches on the end. It was tan/cream in color.

Thanks for letting me know you can't see the photos. I'll try again. Yes, the case is identical to the tan/brown ones except it's a mint green and white.

I have one but it comes with a plastic case. I like yours though!! Very nice.

I have both of these cases, one in tan and the other in the mint https://cdn.quiltingboard.com/images...es/thumbup.png Minds me that i still have to decide what i'm doing with the machine in the mint case.
ps: i'll post a picture shortly.

Is that a white faceplate as well as the balance wheel?
. I believe mine is all green.

Ok. two tones of green.

The ones i have aren't cosmetically as good as the machine you posted but are in working condition. The Tan one belonged to a family member and the mint case machine was bought as a donor machine. Good work horses these.

I also have that exact case! Mine is also new to me. The sewing machine specialist who cleaned it and put on a new belt said that it was in excellent condition! These are supposed to be workhorses of machines. My grandmother loved the one she had, and it sure put miles of fabric under it’s needles. I hope that you find yours a blessing!
