Default Singer 128-13

Managed to get this 128-13 a few days back now. Was local and in awesome condition. Machine only needs a good clean/lube and a re-wire obviously due to age. The bentwood case only needs very minimal work to the veneer on the inside (where the machine sits so this area never gets aired properly). Only thing missing was the usual green accessory box but i did get the original oil bottle
Looking forward to using this purely because i learned how to use a machine on a 99 and a 128 when i was a kidda.

I thought the 128-13 was a crinkle finish. http://www.ismacs.net/singer_sewing_...s-100-199.html

I'm with Leon on this one

While i use Ismacs, i don't solely rely on it as a complete picture. I also use wiki among other references. Part of the joy of old Singers is the sometimes the scattered incomplete info, some being lost during to the war time. Makes it interesting looking up relevant info and hearing others opinion (hence the post).
Thanks for the reply

It looks like it's in very good condition. If you plan to use it there are replacement bobbins still available for 128s. The don't hold that much thread, so a good work around is to wind a few to start with. I'm sure an accessory box and any presure foot needed will come a long with a bit of search.

Best of luck :- )

Thanks Mickey2, i think so for the age. It was the condition of the bentwood case that caught my eye, not to mention the knee-bar was also included (have had machines in past with that part missing). Also got 3 original bobbins with it and should be enough as don't plan to use the machine that much (but you never know). Much thanks for the reply.
