Im so happy, i mail ordered it.
Singer 160 anniversary model
Beautiful machine. I was curious about the bobbins it requires and had to investigate. You may already know this -
"Do not use regular class 15 bobbins in these machines, they will cause tension problems and can damage the bobbin case. The 15J is slightly smaller than the regular class 15, and the edges have a slight curve towards the center."
Another thing, again you may already know this - the bobbin case for drop-in bobbin style sewing machines require more frequent cleaning than the configuration of the oscillating type machine.
Cleaning requires the removal of the needle plate and I have found the faux screw-driver that comes with the new machines is difficult to work with and bought a set of "stubbies" for an easier grip.
do you know that this is not really antique
its their 160 yr anniversary look a like!!! it has LED lighting and simple bobbins (no springs). It comes with accessories and 24 stitch styles.
