I am back! Glad to "see" everyone again. My computer was down for several weeks. Got a "new" refurbished one and hope to be trouble free. Can't wait to catch up with all the emails. Hope you are all well and found many good treasure sewing machines when I was gone. I will need to check back post sfor pictures.

This is the hardest site to use I believe I've ever been on!! At any rate, the machine is a 127 with an unusual decal--quite possibly a refurbished machine. I will check Needlebar in a minute and see if there's any record of this decal. The hand wheel is small because it's for an electric machine--either it started out that way or was part of the refurbishing.

I went back and took another look at the machine after looking at the Needlebar pics. These decals don't show up on Needlebar, and I do believe it's been refurbished. My 2nd look at Howard's machine shows what appears to be 2 holes in the front of the pillar where the Singer badge used to be. You can tell whether it's a 127 or 128 by the bed size--128 is 3/4 sized.

Miz Johnny...a question for you...I picked up a Singer Redeye..66 of course. Are all the 66's with back attachments 66-1's?
This machine does have the motor mount..and came with a motor attached...(I took it off)

Loraine, what are the machines measurements -- the bed length and width? Also, what is the serial number? Also, does it have a shuttle bobbin or a regular bobbin?

I found your picture too and your machine doesn't look like any of mine.
