  1. Singer 45k1 Restoration Decals

    The 45K25 is finally finished and has original, gold-leaf, Singer decals on it from Folker. He finds the best stuff. I'll clean them up a bit once they've setup and dried. I don't know if they're correct to the K25, but that's the way it'll have to be. Since I used authentic japan to restore the machine, I wanted to use authentic Singer decals, not reproductions, and that's what I had available. I'll update my japanning article with pictures and details for the members in the near future.......I'm sold on japanning. In the meantime, I would like to determine the age of the decals. Jimi posted the pictures below of a 29K33 that appear to have the same decals. I thought if I could date that machine, it would give me some idea of the age of my decals. The trouble is the serial number doesn't appear to have a letter prefix and the number, 524961?, doesn't show-up in the Singer production records. Can anyone shed some light on the serial number and/or the age of the decals? Here's a picture of the paper backing from the decals, if that helps, they're No. 7421. Thanks good people one and all.

Menard"s is having a sale currently on their Butcher Block Top, 25" Wide x 48" Long x 1.5" Thick for $71.19 after mail in rebate. https://www.menards.com/main/kitchen/countertops-laminate/all-countertops-laminate/butcher-block-top-25-wide-x-48-long-x-1-5-thick/4857016birchbblock25x48/p-1444430610144.htm That's what I used on this patcher, it's the natural color with polyurethane.. They stock them at the store here in town. I'll do it again if I have the need. . .
  3. What singer is this?

    This one looks similar. I believe it belongs to LW member Shoepatcher. He'll know the details of the one in the ad.
  4. Singer 45K69 Channeling Knife

    Hi John, Sure hope the tonsil issue is behind you. You'll be in our thoughts and prayers. Maybe this 241- pdf will have what you need, it does have a threading diagram. http://dixiesewingmachine.tzo.com/MANUALS/SINGERSERVICE3/241-Inst.pdf parts manual http://dixiesewingmachine.tzo.com/MANUALS/SINGERPARTS10/241-11,12&13.pdf
  5. Still can't find these parts !! Any help would sure be appreciated.
  6. Just brought a singer 29k

    Your welcome. Did you notice the small, numerical list of the parts with names, it may help identify what some parts do..

  8. Would anyone be able to post a close-up picture of the Throat Plate Channeling Knife that's used in a Singer 45K69 leather shoe soling machine (perhaps others)? I'm nearing completion of a 45K69 restoration and may have to fabricate the channeling knife. It cuts the protective groove in the shoe sole that the thread lays in. Other than these images ( small, medium and large sizes) from the parts manual, I have no detail on the actual shape of the cutting end. The knife fits in that slot in the throat plate in the picture and is held in place with the screw. Thank you, thank you very much.
  9. singer45k25

    My 45K25 is disassembled at the moment (see photos above). This is the underside of a 45K53, it may be similar to a 45K25, because the 91163 part you've shown above is common to both subclasses. Others may comment.
  10. Source for Red Consew Badge? 206RB

    If you're interested enough to have one made, you might contact the Antique Fan Collectors Association museum. They do vintage fan restorations and have many sources.....old type lacquers, cloth covered wire, custom parts and etc. The number is 1-317-733-4113, www.fanimation.com/museum Perhaps they can direct you to someone who can assist you.
  11. Help with singer 99k

    Here's a 99-1 parts list with hand crank (no pictures). http://dixiesewingmachine.tzo.com/MANUALS/SINGERPARTS5/99-1.pdf Here's a 99-13 parts list showing pictures to scale. http://dixiesewingmachine.tzo.com/MANUALS/SINGERPARTS5/99-13.pdf I believe you'll find many of the part numbers for the two machines are the same, so together the lists should be useful.
  12. Simanco part number 91716. Would you please let me know what you have? Thank you. Here's a picture
