Do we know how old they are and where they were made?
They painted the shuttle?
My bad....not the shuttle, the cabinet. Sorry bout that.

I think it's missing the bobbin case...the spool pin...tension spring...

Nice cabinet though.

What would you do first?

Right now I need to get some work done.
I would start by watching Muv's wonderful videos!!! http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-155695-1.htm
She has a series of 8 on U tube. I would watch them all before I did too much. She has really good info.

If the machine is locked up - then you may need Billy's "spa treatment" or a partial spa treatment . .

Just be sure and use sewing machine oil. Avoid 3 in 1 oil.
Thanks one of them is locked up, what is Billy's spa treatment, I will search for it later, time to make dinner now.
How bad does it look? Just because it is locked up doesn't mean you have to strip it down. Is it locked up from rust or from 3 in 1 oil? I trust you can tell the difference. Not every machine needs the total tear down and soak
Sorry I dont know the difference, it doesn't look like rust but I haven't gotten into it yet.

I might need new glass, but to me that looks like a typewritter. Kathie

I am happy to be joining the vintage club with my "new to me" Singer 99k. I just got it at a junk shop for 25.00. All I needed was a new light job and some oil to get her going.
I have some Singer slant attachments if anyone wants to purchase them. Pm me.
Congratulations!!! What a great price for your Singer 99. What year is it from? I have a 1928 Singer 99-13 with the knee bar and just love it. Mine has the bentwood case with it, does yours? They are beautiful machines.

All these accessories were with it, 2 instruction manuals, oil can.
But it smells of cig. smoke, ahhhhh.
I want a Redeye, but the only ones I've found have been on the East Coast - now here's another. Congratulations on your machines. I wonder if I can get my son to garage sale for me. He's in NJ now.
