INDUSTRIAL STRENGTH SINGER MODEL 347 SEWING MACHINE
Singer Model# 347
In Very Nice Condition
INDUSTRIAL STRENGTH Singer Model 347 Straight Stitch (with Reverse Feed and ZigZag) Sewing Machine, Serial Number: EY356489 built July 23rd, 1966 in Clydebank, Scotland. The 347 is a 1960's workhorse, it features a full steel chassis, all steel gears, and Singer's famous cogged belt driven rotary hook system just like the big industrial machines. Machine shows well with less than average wear and tear for a machine of this age (some chips and scratches here and there from use and handling, and normal discoloration, that's it!), and really lives up to Singer's legendary reputation for sewing excellence. Overall, very very nice. Sews a perfect stitch, forward or reverse, straight or circles. 100% Working Zigzag as seen by samples. Solid Steel Casing. 5/16 on an inch of space beneath the foot. Very powerful, penetrates dense material with ease. 6 - 20 stitches per inch, with Reverse and ZigZag. Working light. Soft, flexible cords. Machine has been cleaned and lightly oiled with Authentic Singer Machine Lube and has had the timing and tolerances checked and is perfect. I am including a digital copy of the Singer model 347 sewing machine owners manual on CDrom in .pdf format. This will guide you through the process of threading the upper needle thread as well as filling the bobbin and selecting the right needle and tension settings for the job at hand. It really makes sewing like a pro easy. Most importantly, it will show you exactly how to lube, disassemble, reassemble, and maintain your machine so that it will last another 46 years. This machine is 100% ready to go, right out of the box. Everything needed to sew, including needle and thread will be included in the package. As an added bonus, also included will be, (4) Singer Class 66 Bobbins, (1) Singer Steel ZigZag Foot, (1) Combination Zipper/Cording Foot, (1) Singer Model 347 Owners Manual on CDrom, (1) Bottle of Singer Sewing Machine Oil, and all other pictured accessories.

Here is a sample of some Upholstery Cording I did on this machine. One hour on this machine and you will be doing these like a Pro too. It's fairly easy. First, you take a small strip of your Material and wrap it around a stretch of cording rope, and sew it tight with the included Special Zipper/Cording foot. Then, blanket that in two more layers of your Material and sew it tight against the Cord once more. Then trim your excess, and you should have a nicely corded piece. With this machine and the included attachments, you will be able to do your own Upholstery work like a Pro with just a few hours of practice.
Fully Adjustable ZigZag Width
Perfect For All Your Webbing Projects (Repairing Sails, Tents, Packs, etc..)
Class 66 Bobbins and Full Rotary Hook System
We used Coats and Clark T26 (Size 69 equivalent) Nylon Upholstery thread for sewing our samples in this auction. It is water resistant and incredibly strong and made for indoor and outdoor use, such as but not limited to, car seats, furniture upholstery, boat covers, horse and pig blankets, car covers, motorcycle seats, repairing sails and tarps, etc. If you are planning on sewing heavy materials, I would suggest you purchase some of this or similar Heavy Duty thread. This type of thread is available at Walmarts, JoAnns Fabric Stores, and most sewing machine dealers for about $2 a spool(150 yards).

Industrial Strength in this case means extremely strong, which means this machine is not an industrial or commercial sewing machine, but powerful enough to work as industrial. That is the definition of "INDUSTRIAL STRENGTH" from Webster · Oxford · Cambridge. Keep in mind, these machines are used and 50 to 70 years old, and will show minor wear and tear appropriate for a machine of that age, even if not evident in the pictures.
