Singer 29k8 - made 1897

13 posts in this topic

First of all let me thank all of you that make the effort to share information on this forum, been a huge help while i started leatherworking !
So finally i got my hands on a singer 29k, its a 29k8 and according to the serial its made 1897 so happy 120 year birthday ;)
Its been served and a few years ago and no one have used it after that so all i needed to do was to feed it some oil, everything runs smoothly and im looking foreword to learn to work with her.
I got it for 200€ and a nice bonus was that i also got the original stool with the singer.

Done fair amount of research but cant really find much information about 29k8, closest i got has been in a few manuals that have 29k73, anyone have any information to share about 29k8 ?

Here is a few pics

Well done for getting that stool with it.  The stools are quite sought after, and the 29K8 looks lovely.
