    Singer 99K-13, Pristine

    I guess the third one is a charm. A truly clean machine except for a lot of dust and lint. The wiring is perfect and the light works. She came with attachments and even two black spool felts that must have been original to the sewing machine. Oiled the innards and greased the motor yesterday. Today is dusting and lint removal.

    Here serial number, EK928170, was allotted 23 Nov 1955, one of 50,000.

    Actually did sew on some binding to a quilt today, pieced a couple of OBW blocks, trimmed two quilts for binding. But that was after running around fetching DH some fishing stuff, getting groceries, the list goes on and on. Got so many false starts around here it is nigh impossible to complete anything. Finally found my jug of Evaporust though. Major accomplishment!.

    Miriam,

    I've learned more "by accident" than on purpose. Seems to stick with me more too.

    Snazzy little thing, and in such nice condition! And thanks for the closeup of the serial number. I just figured out where a "leftover" washer goes from when I was cleaning mine! (Left it off the bobbin winding thread guide).
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!

    Ain't that the truth??? I'm all for that, I think.

    I recently purchased a 99K from a friend who got it on an auction. I do need to get a spool pin for it (the one it came with is bent a bit on the bottom), and I need extra bobbins for her. The light doesn't work, but Sally's motor purrs...I did plug her isna 'test-drove' without and fabric under the needle and she seems to do just fine. Now, if I can figure out how to get the bulb out and a new one in, I'd be home free. G'night, everyone!
    When someone mentions quilting, I go to pieces!

    Sew-classic has parts a free instruction manual (shows how to change the light) and lots of feet, bobbins, spool pins, bobbin tires, belts - you name it and she is easy to deal with.

    Agree with Miriam about Sew-Classic. Will add that if the spool pin is not loose, they can be straightened.

    I have straightened spool pins by placing an old thread spool on the pin and tapping it with a rubber mallet. But a nice new one is nicer.

    Congrats on the 99 - nice little machines - great for teaching kidos and they are a work horse of a little machine... I buy what ever Triflow Sew-Classic has - the grease gets used on gears and the oil on all the moving parts. Shake it well. It has teflon in it. Sewing machine oil these days has paraffin - Glenn recommends clock oil - he is into old clocks as well as old sewing machines. Sew-classic has some info on the Triflow as well as a better price than your local bicycle shop. I would not use the T-F spray.

    Thanks you, another question on the 99's...do ALL low shank Singer attachments work with this...I have featherweight attachments that look like they would work, but comparing the presserfoot I can see a small difference...but one is a 1938...the 99 a 54..also have seen on ebay the snap on adjustment package with lots of low shank feet...does anyone know or have used this on the older singers???
