    Glenn you said your 66-1 and I remember someone saying that they had a 66-6. I have a 66, how can you tell the difference between and how can you tell what the third number is? Kathie
    Kathie the 66-1's were made between 1902 and 1906, have back clamping feet and are treadles.

    The 66-6's were made between 1921 and 1931 with side clamping feet and are electric.

    There was also a 66-3, hand crank, back clamping and a 66-4 - side clamping treadle. Also, a 66-5 - side clamping hand crank.

    The 66-8 thru 66-24 are all side clamping and starting with the 66-14 they had reverse too. I had a chance to get 2 different 66-16's at different yard sales this weekend and passed on both of them. They were both electric of course, very nice - both had all the attachments and manual. I wish I'd of picked one up, but I didn't want another electric 66, I already have a 66-6 I saved! Although, it would be nice to have a 66 with reverse!~

    Kathie, Nancy answered your question before I could get back to you. Nancy is wonderful and full of information. She is great!! She gave you the same info I would have given you. Glenn

    Does anyone have information on Singer hand crank machines with serial numbers starting with NL-K
    I heard these may be remakes. I could not find information on the web about this serial number.
    The two I have seen are in really great condition, leading me to think they are remakes and not old machines.

    I know part of this answer...the 66 is a regular full size machine whereas the 99 is 3/4's of the 66.

    at least 4 of them look like chainstitchers like the Willcox & Gibbs I want... I would love to see if our resident brains know what these are, they are just so neat to look at :)

    So, how many of you while researching info on vintage machines and usage of vintage machines start folders of the google sites that you found helpful?

    :? :roll:
    If I understood your question correctly, I know what you mean. Did you see this topic on 'my pages' when I posted it? You might find it more helpful than 'bookmarking' googled info.

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-81136-1.htm


    :-D
    Oh! Thanks for posting the link to this discussion. I will look into using my page for the information! I liked reading how others handle this too. Thanks! :-)
    You are welcome. I have learned to use 'my pages' a lot more since that topic. Did you click on my Profile and see the pages I have categorized? If you have any questions I would be glad to help you out on this. I have found it to me most helpful. After 'bookmarking' quite a few topics and then trying to locate them, it just began to feel like one of my junk drawers.... you might find something you want in there if you swish thingies back and forth long enough. LOL :lol: :lol: :lol:
    Sorry, I didn't get back with you after this post. I got busy with kids activities, and then went to the Eagle Scout ceremony-which was way cool!

    I know what you mean in that you feel like one of the junk drawers, that was how I'm feeling.

    I never paid any attention to this feature, but now I will! After looking through yours, I now have an idea as to how to set mine up. Thank you again! :)

    Yes, some do look like chain sewing machines. The one on the far left reminds me of the Little Red Riding Hood Toy Sewing Machine made in Germany. Have to check on this. Sure are gorgeous.

    I am fairly new to all the "other" vintage machines ~ but have known of the redeyes for about 20 years... that is the one vintage machine I have always wanted to own... got my 27 with Tiffany decals earlier this year (1906) ~ just got my 15 clone a few days ago, got a Willcox & Gibbs treadle parlor cabinet given to me (searching for a nice head), and now I'm getting my redeye... I am a happy camper!

    Any ideas on how to keep the thread cutter on the 301 from sliding down? It seems to fit very tightly, but it slips down with use. Obvious answer - don't use it, but I'm accustomed to using a thread cutter.

    This is fantastic! Again-Thanks for posting this information.
    I copied a couple of your titles and added some of mine. I had only seen bookmarks, but never used that. This is much more helpful!

    Oh, goodness, wish I have been able to read this before I left town. My son and DDIL were in that area on their anniversary trip and antique shopping. They could have snagged me one of them. :( I did text them and told them to BOLO for a treadle for me.

    Next time, I'm going to have to take my puter with me so I won't miss anything!! Went too long with CL and QB!!

    No, I am not an encyclopedia! My very first job was secretary to a man who expected me to handle everything in his life! I became very good at taking notes and keeping records! But, thank you!

    Thank you Cherry!

    The 99 is the same as the 66 just a 3/4 size machine. They both have a drop in bobbin. They both are horizontal oscillating hooks. The 66 has a normal 14 3/4 size bed, the 99 has a 12 1/2" bed. They take the same class 66 bobbins, the same feet (except for the early 66's which had side clamping feet). The 66 was made from 1902 until about 1960, the 99 from 1923 till about 1963. Also, the 99's were never as ornate as the early 66's, i.e., Redeye, Lotus. Hope this helps!

    Nancy
