INDUSTRIAL STRENGTH SINGER CLASS 66 SEWING MACHINE


No Reserve



Singer Model# 66-16
In Very Nice Condition


INDUSTRIAL STRENGTH Singer Model 66-16 Straight Stitch (with Reverse Feed) sewing machine, serial number AG636017 born March 12th, 1946 in Elizabeth, New Jersey. The Model 66 is one of the best machines ever made by Singer as shown by it's longevity and buyer demand. Deck and body show well with less than average wear and tear for a 66 year old machine (some scratches here and there from use and handling and normal hazing of the finish in spots, that's it!), and really lives up to the model 66's legendary sewing reputation. This is one you don't want to let get away. I purchased this machine from the daughter of it's original owner, who told me her mother always had it serviced every year from when she bought it until 2009, and it shows. Runs smooth and penetrates dense material with ease, and look at the beautiful stitches it sews. Machine has been cleaned and lightly oiled with Authentic Singer Machine Lube and has had the timing and tolerances checked and is perfect. 6-30 Stitches per inch with reverse. Steel Class 66 Drop In Bobbins. Unlike now days when companies build things to work good but die early so you buy more of their product, Singer built these 66's to last for at least 100 years. That's the kind of company Singer was, and if you give this machine basic care and cleaning, it could very well last 200. This is the one you could hand down to your grandchildren someday with pride. So, with just normal oiling and care, this machine is set to work hard for you for decades to come. I am including the original Singer Model 66-16 owners manual. 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 66 years. This machine is 100% ready to go, right out of the box. Everything needed to sew, including needle and thread and the samples sewn in these pictures, will be included in the package. As an added bonus, included will be, (1) Singer Model 66 Attachment Set, (1) Left And Right Zipper/Cording Feet, (4) Singer Class 66 Bobbins, (1) Original Singer Model 66-16 Owners Manual, (1) Brand New Bottle Of Singer Sewing Machine Oil, and all other pictured accessories.




5/16'' OF SPACE UNDER THE FOOT!
 

This Machine will sew light leather, tarps, sunbrella, tents, boat covers and sails, canvas, suede, heavy jeans, automotive upholstery, just about anything.

8 Layers Brown Upholstery
4 Layers Blue/Gray Corded Vinyl
3 Layers Blue Webbing
4 Layers Heavy Marine Vinyl

Sewn With #18 Needle, and Size 69 Upholstery Thread


You Are Ready To Begin Even Your Biggest Projects With The Included Heavy Duty Size 18 Needles, Size 16 Denim Needles, And Upholstery Thread!


Perfect For All Your Webbing Projects (Repairing Sails, Tents, Packs, etc..)


No One Makes Them Like This Anymore. No One!


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 one of the included Zipper/Cording feet. 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.


All metal cam-driven, this machine's workings are as tough as they come!


Class 66 Bobbins and Time Proven Oscillating 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).
