    People must be spring cleaning. i just checked Craigslist and there are numerous machines available. A chrome bedecked Domestic was interesting, but I'm not biting. There was a Singer that has to be in the 300s for a good price.

I have never seen one, until they showed up here a few weeks ago and now they seem so be coming out of the woodwork! Sorry for so many questions, but they are fascinating to me. Thanx!
    These machines were made in Japan. It's seems to be a smaller copy of the singer 15 not big at all about the same size as a FW. The working parts are steel and the frame work is Alum. and the outside is pressed tin.

    It's not as heavy as a 99 weights about 15#. They use the same needle as the 99 just bobbin looks to be like the 15. I have sewed with her just to see how she does, and it sews fast you have to get used to it. It also has a tinny sound when sewing. You can remove acouple of things and her dress comes off so she can be oiled.
    I have only seen them on e bay until Tammy got one.

    I took a picture of her without her dress on so you can see her body.
    Thank you for showing this! Gives me more insight to mine that is named Cinderella. Who by the way is on her way to me as we speak! I can't wait to get it so I can check it all out. I am like Billy on this as far as I like the idea that the whole side comes off of it making it easy to oil good. Thanx again.
    Tammy

    Stopped in a neighboring town's Salvation Army where three nice condition older sewing machines were sitting in the back. I came home with this one because the color was pretty. The other two were Singers from 70's. ($15) It is branded Fiatelli --maybe after the car? Made in Japan with an American motor.

    Billy can you tell me what type of bobbins this machine takes? Is this considered a "redeye"...It is dated 1910.
    Also confused since research tells me it's a 66 but booklet that came with the machine shows 99?

    Greenini: Thank you for posting the pictures of the attachments. I was wondering what the differences was between a walking foot and a blind stitch attachment. Thanks for sharing.

    Tommie: Gotta love going on treasure hunts and coming home with some very nice finds :)

    Hobbykat: I think Billy had said at one point that all Redeyes were 66's. Beautiful machine. Are you going to keep it electric or convert it to a treadle?

    Emmah: I really like your new Fiatelli. Did she come with a manual by chance?

    I'm not Billy but I can answer your question. Your machine
    is a model 66 with Red Eye/Red head decals, it takes a class 66 bobbin as does the 99. The 99 is a smaller 66, it threads the same. I have a Red Eye too, mine is dated 1918.
