This Singer Featherweight 222K is stunning and appears to have hardly been used at all! Original 222K Manual included for reference and learning. Completely serviced, cleaned, polished, electrically inspected, timed, tuned and sampled - rest assured, this Featherweight 222 will be ready to sew right out of the case. Original powerful 110v motor with a quiet, smooth stitch accompanies this machine (see photos).
The A.P. initials on the back of the motor indicates that the motor was issued as non-standard voltage. In this case, 220 voltage was standard issue for 222K Featherweights, so issuing this motor with the 222K as a 110 voltage was unusual. Evidence suggests that the 110 volt motor is original to the machine.
ER316*** indicates an original production commission date of May 30, 1960 and we give this machine a Grade 8+. Be sure to click on any image above to view the reflective finish of this Singer Featherweight machine. You can tell that it was hardly used and decal wear is minimal. There is also a teensy nick at the back of the bed next to the decals, and a scratch on the back, near the decals, next to the word "The". Machine is truly in gorgeous condition with probably not a lot of sewing time.
Please take note of the Feed Dog Lowering Lever indicated by SEW & DARN. This enables free-motion embroidery & darning. You can go from ‘SEW’ing to ‘DARN’ing just by pulling on the lever and then lowering it down to the Darn position. This will lower your feed dogs (teeth-like mechanism) enabling Free-Motion work.
Bed extension removed reveals the tiniest little free-arm - perfect for tight seams and hard-to-reach places. On her personal 222, April was able to repair a little loop on her daughter’s mary jane leather shoe - all because the little free-arm enabled her to stitch inside and at the right angle.
All machines go through an electrical-safety inspection - of vital importance when making the upgrade, and most importantly, to have the assurance that your sewing machine is safe to "today's" electrical standards. All you have to do is plug it in and begin sewing!
The Featherweight 222 / 222K’s that April 1930’s offers are always USA and CANADA (North American) electrically compatible! That is, they run on 110 voltage / current. You will not need to purchase a separate voltage converter
