    Default Second Try - 1910 Red Eye at Thrift Store.

    I tried to edit the first post about "Close; but no cigar, or penguin" but the post had timed out. Then I tried to delete it; no luck.

    So, I'm going to try to repost the photos correctly. Could someone delete the first posting for me?

    --- Look what I saw at a GF thrift store!

    I'm sorry about the photos I took them with my iPod, and had to post them to this site with the iPod, and I can't seem to rotate them. Now I'm on the desk top trying to "fix" them.

    It's model number is GO 463379. According to the Singer site it was made on June 2, 1910 - 105 years old. Is that correct? They say it's a Class 15-; I thought it was a 99. What do you think?

    It's a treadle, and the 7-drawer cabinet, Red Eye machine, and a drawer-full of attachments is all going for $75.

    The belt is broken, and the little curved piece between the spoked hand wheel and the post of the machine is loose. It has 7 or 8 bobbins in one of the drawers, bobbin case, needles, most of the original owner's manual, etc.

    The Penguin walking foot is no where to be seen.

    Well - once again I can send the photos from my iPod to the desktop, and rotate them, but they won't post from my desktop to this site.

    It's a lovely machine. I'm sorry I can't share it!

    It's a model 66. The red head decals were only put on a 66. It looks to be in very nice shape.

    Nice! Both the machine and cabinet are in really good shape. The belt guide can be tightened, it's only held on by one small screw.
    The belts are easily available from many sources.

    I'd $75.00 is a good price for that combo.

    Quilts R Fun - No; I didn't bring it home but I had fun playing.

    My sewing/crafting room is only 12'x12' and I already have four sewing machines, two in cabinets, and a serger in there. Plus there is an empty 5-drawer Singer treadle cabinet, very plain and similar to this one, "hiding" in the basement. (Does someone want to pick it up for free?)

    I simply can't bring in another cabinet or machine. Most importantly, I'm saving my mad money for when I find the perfect Singer 201 for my niece.

    Joe - Your comments make my resolve waiver.

    Linda - Think "road trip!" I'll meet you there and help load it up.

    The cabinet had so many old bobbins in the drawers. I asked the sales clerk if I could buy two of them, but she said "No." I'll ask again when a more reasonable clerk is working. LOL

    She did let me purchase the very large celluloid (I believe) tatting shuttle that was in another drawer. It is filled with thread an has one ring of a pattern that had just been started.

    I have to go back to town Monday. I'm taking the "real" digital camera along and will try to get some decent photos then. It sure is a beautiful piece of artwork! Lust and Envy!

    - Thanks for the info on the Red machines. This one has a model number stating with "GO";the site I used to date it had "G-" an said 1910. Another site with "two letter prefixes" said 1934. Do you know which date would be correct?

    No I don't. I don't know off hand how long Singer used that decal. Also, the number is the serial number, the model is 66. You have to know whether the serial number starts with GO-XXX or G-XXX. A one letter or two letter prefix. But- it looks like it has a side clamping foot on it, so it may be the later date(or someone changed the presser foot bar).

    It's a two-letter prefix. It starts with GO; the entire serial number is GO463379.

    All of the attachments in the drawers had the side clamps, too. I'll set them out on the machine and try to get photos tomorrow.
