We don’t often have a vibrating shuttle machine in need of a good home, but I’ve just put this really pretty Singer 28K on the “Singers for Sale” page.
What’s interesting about it apart from anything else is its bobbin winder. As you can see, that’s a high-level one, so you could be excused for thinking that this machine is obviously a 128 so Sid’s had a brainfart again.
But it’s not. It might have the high-level 128-style bobbin winder, but it doesn’t have the magic button on the shuttle carrier which ejects the shuttle, therefore it’s a 28. It could of course be a 128 which has had its shuttle carrier swopped for one off a 27 or 28, but it hasn’t. So it isn’t. A 128 that is.
It’s a 28. For sure. The serial number says so. It’s a 1935 machine, from the last but one batch of 28K’s, which were almost but not quite 128K’s.
Whatever, it’s got a nice bentwood case, it works a treat, and it’s got a very pretty faceplate …
A happy, healthy and peaceful New Year to one and all (more or less) 🙂
