EASILY AVAILABLE ON EBAY AND THE INTERNET.The Singer 99K sewing machine was introduced in 1911 as a response to the growing demand for a lighter more portable domestic sewing machine that did not need to be used in a special table. In 1911 it had a list price of £6-10s-0d, although this was reduced to £5-4s-0d for cash purchases.The 99K was a 3/4 size version of the established full size Model 66K. It used an identical mechanism and many of the same parts other than the basic body casting. The 99K stayed in production until around 1958.The Singer 99K was a sturdy and reliable machine that was easy to use. It became very popular with occasional home users because at 22lbs (10kg), it was more manageable than 'full size' machines and it came in a storage case.In 1921 the company introduced the option of a Singer electic motor making the 99K the first portable electric machine.The 99K will sew most fabrics from fine delicates to denim or leather and will handle any normal household sewing task with ease. The machines have adjustable tension and stitch length controls. The 99K must always be mounted in some form of base because the underbed mechanism will not allow it to sit directly onto a table surface.Early Singer 99K's were sold in wooden bases with a small compartment under the balance wheel to store accessories and bobbins etc. At first they had 'Bentwood' (polished plywood) covers which are now thought of as very desirable. Later models were still fitted in the same wooden bases, but these slid into a mock crocodile suitcase style case for transport or storage. By the end of its production life the Singer 99K was mounted in a plastic base with a clip-on plastic lid, or a soft plastic dust cover. Unfortunately the plastic bases frequently crack.AN EXCELLENT QUALITY MADE HAND CRANKED SEWING MACHINE BY SINGER FROM 1933.PLEASE ALSO VIEW MY OTHER ITEMS FOR SALE AND SAVE ON POSTAGE.Item PhotosCondition:Used, Condition:WORKING PERFECTLY-VERY GOOD VINTAGE CONDITION AS SHOWN., Type:Mechanical, Brand:SINGER, Featured Refinements:Vintage Sewing Machine
