The old Singer

I found this sewing machine in the garbage 15 years ago.

It has been working well ever since then.

When I needed to replace the rubber ring of the spooler I went to they Singer store and they had one. This machine is about 90 years old.

It needs no electricity and sews through up to six layers of denim without complaining.

I've learned what I know about sewing because of this machine.

Serial Number is Y805212 so it was built in Clydebank, Scotland in 1923
