    Here in central FL that is a good price. I just bought a 66 red eye in wood cabinet and paid $150 for it, it is in great shape and will be glad when I have time to work on it. Wish I was closer.

    No shortage of old Singers. Only problem is ebay gives people the idea there worth big bucks. Good luck in your search.

    How does that hand crank work on the wheel??? Did you cut a notch or do something else?
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    I was wondering the same thing. What's the name on that machine? I didn't know Singer badged for anyone. Or is it a clone? The case is super nice. Thanks for the pictures.

    It is a Broadway. 99 Clone ALUMINUM. Yes, I notched the handcrank, Took about 60 seconds with a 1/2 inch wide grinding wheel.

    I did the same treatment to the Singer Spartan 99 clone here.

    I thought it said Broadway! Love it! 1/2 grinding wheel -- a lot faster than using a drill press. Must have been some fun fireworks-ish sparkage, too.
