This is an all metal, 1950, Singer Feather Weight, sewing machine that sews like the day it was made. It also happens to be a centennial model, as indicated on its badge, celebrating 100 years of Singer sewing machine production. It is a straight stitch machine with proportional reverse. It can use most any low shank attachment, including binder, ruffler, hemmer, zig zagger, etc. With feed dog cover plate it can also do darning and free hand sewing. It can handle delicate fabric as well extra heavy material like canvas and light leather. It is light weight, at only 13 pounds and is easy to care, in or out of its case.

The decals are almost perfect as you can see in the pictures. The paint is unblemished. The light works and the light and motor wiring is undamaged. The belt is a recent replacement. Timing has been checked. Tension assembly as be removed and cleaned. Motor grease ports cleared of old grease and refilled. I checked the motor brushes and they have had only minimal wear.

It comes with a case that is in excellent condition. Both latches work. Case fabric is sound, even the bottom.

It also has the original green owners manual, power cord and foot control, a box of attachments, 5 thread bobbins, and very importantly, the original Simanco bobbin case.

I am located in Riverside, Ca. If you are not local, shipping can be discussed.
