FINAL update October 15

The end of the road

I’ve enjoyed selling the very best available Featherweights for over 15 years.
Sadly it all has to end.
Two reasons.

  1. My motor specialist, and ex-Singer man with the equipment he bought from the factory when it closed, is now in his 90s and, understandably, is finding it tough to do the difficult armature and field-coil rewinding necessary to properly recondition a motor.
  2. I’m not going to lower my standards and it’s becoming near impossible to find sufficient first-class machines to sustain the business.

To all those customers who supported me over the years (many became close friends), my thanks. It’s been a blast.
I’ll continue until the few remaining machine are gone and then probably sell the vast stock of spares that have accumulated over the years. I'll also try to source specially requested machines.

With www.singer-featherweight.com at the top of every internet search engine, I’ve already had a number of interesting offers for the site.  Be assured that if the name continues it will be in the hands of someone who shares my love of these fantastic machines and who will maintain current standards

I aim to stick around the various digests, help with queries wherever I can and continue the life-time backup promised to my customers.


My final update which should include Centennials, Standard machines and 222 Freearms will go live here on October 15.

Sorry, all 222 Freearm machines have been sold

EJ 618673
Made: 1954
Condition: 9



Price $1500
including next-day

Here’s a machine which almost made the ultimate 9+ category in my condition chart.
We have perfect decals without a trace of wear or fading anywhere – and perfect chrome.
And, of course, the paintwork has that deep gorgeous black Featherweight shine.
The only reason I could not give it the ultimate accolade is some slight crazing to the top protective lacquer on the extension bed. You need to hold the machine at a certain angle to the light to see it at all
So here’s a near-perfect machine that would be at home on a collector’s shelf or in the hands of a discriminating seamstress
.
Please remember that all my 222 Freearm machines come with fully rebuilt 110 volt motors (unless otherwise requested)  which carry a two-year warranty.
Machine comes with a full range of attachments/feet, thr original  full-size handbook and a packet of Schmetz needles.

Fully cleaned inside and out, serviced and
sew tested before leaving the workshop. Electrically tested for your safety. Pictures are of the actual machine. Any bright marks are from the flash - all flaws are always described in full.

Yes, it’s a 9+ 222 - and we all know how infrequently these become available.
What can one say about a machine that is so near perfection?
We have 100%-complete decals without any trace of wear, superb paintwork, with just the minimum of marks to give any indication at all of previous use; and perfect chrome.
You know, the better they are, the less there is to talk about.
