Item:323995632695SINGER 128k - from 1913 - just before WW1 - so it's 106 years old & still in very good condition! This is the earliest 128k I have come across. The model was an improvement on the older 28 and VS3 machines which came before it - in that it has a shuttle lifter button, automatic tension release when you lift the presser foot, and a more accessible bobbin winder mounted in the high position. The Singer 128 was manufactured right up until 1969 - and most of our parents and grandparents used them - so now they are the most commonly found old Singer machine.Decals are in good condition, although not the prettiest ones they used, but the nickel plated end plate and rear access plate have lovely vine leaf decoration.There are five bobbins, a couple of spare needles, a needle threader and a gathering foot included.The needles are System 705 or Singer 15x1 the same as your modern machine uses, and more bobbins are available here on eBay at about £1 each if you should need them.The wooden case is in excellent condition - and the original key which was missing has been replaced by a 'home made' one which works well.This would make an excellent Christmas present for a young teenager who wants to sew - and it's easy to understand exactly how the stitch is formed if you leave the front slide plate open a tad.It sews well. The little sewing test in the photo - on upholstery vinyl cloth - gives you an idea of its capabilities. It will sew through six layers of denim easily, with perfectly balanced tension top and bottom, and for travelling over thick seams the foot lifts to a good 8mm height.The price - I have kept this very low because the decals are not the prettiest - and because they are so common to find. I would rather not send it by courier - packing it up carefully takes a lot of care and effort - which is why the postage & packing charge is a bit more than some others charge. If I have to post it I will use UPS couriers as I have found they take good care of sewing machines. If it goes outside the UK then the eBay global shipping programme will quote you a price according to your location.If you can collect from Stroud, GL5 and pay cash that would be best - just ask for an invoice minus the P&P charge. Then you could have a look at what other attachments & accessories I could supply.Proceeds to the charity I support - TFSR (Cymru).Condition:Used, Brand:SINGER, Type:Mechanical, Country/Region of Manufacture:United Kingdom
