Default Singer 40K TSM

Hi,

Recently got from ebay my first toy sewing machine, a Singer 40K made in the early 60's. I wasn't sure what to expect quality wise but must admit I'm pretty impressed for what it is. She makes a very nice chain stitch and has an interesting looper / hook which is referred to nodding or rocking. The 40K uses a 24x3 needle which is no longer made though I have enough for my life time. She's also heavy for her small size, the base is cast iron. A neat, well made and designed toy.

I like those - they look sort of like a toy version of the Rocketeer! Looks like yours is in great shape. Nice!

Yes, she is a little sweetheart. I'd love to have a Willcox & Gibbs handcrank but the 40K is about 1/10th the price.

Lovely little toy sewing machine. I was in an antique store yesterday and saw two Singer toy sewing machines in a locked glass case. I did not ask the price, maybe next time. I really like yours.
