Seller: Top-Rated Plus Seller oldiesknew (2,055) 99.4%, Location: Chicago, Illinois, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 163875063043 Offered for consideration is a working vintage mid 1930's Singer model 221 Featherweight portable sewing machine with foot pedal connector. Has a serial number of AE221009 which an online data base dates it to the mid 1930's. This came from a local multi - generation estate in which this machine we were told pretty much sat idle for decades although it seems to have had some moderate use so much so that age and use required us to purchase a new belt for it. (Photo 11 shows its old white belt) The machine itself is in good cosmetic and running condition although we suspect its motor from being idle for so long is in need of grease, cleaning or maintenance because with previous singer featherweight machines that we came across when the foot pedal is only slightly depressed, the machines motor will start off in a low RPM and with this one needs to be fully depressed for the motor to run. There are rubber feet on its underside that need to be replaced as well. Its sewing area has mainly surface scratches onto this areas top coating which photos should note. We did not find its case, accompanying booklet or other associated part items, just what is pictured although its accessories and booklets are readily available online.
