The mystery sewing machine
My brother and his wife were taking a walk in their neighborhood in north Jersey and found this lovely machine with its table on the sidewalk. They picked it up and brought it home. At first they thought SIL's Featherweight might fit in the table (are there any tables out there for the Featherweights?) but no luck so they asked me if I wanted the machine...of course!!
My brother hasn't been able to find a model number so that I can find the manual and find more info. Do any of you have any idea if there are any marks or branding that will help me out?
Thanks for any help!
ETA: Well, I was able to find through the Singer Website by inputting the serial number that my machine is Model or class 66 made around the 1950's. The confusing part is that there are several model 66 made in different years so I'll have to do more research... Here is a good website with more details on this model
