  1. Thinking of starting up a sweatshop? Or making your own cool camper seat covers? Wifey's little sewing machine not up to it? I have just what you need...


    It's a Singer 96KSV7, or at least that all I could find on it. I plugged it in and it works. I didn't actually thread the threads and sew because I don't know how, but it does go/needle goes up and down. My ex used it at work to make curtains for posh people in Bristol and they gave it to her as a leaving present. She hardly used it and doesn't want it now. Luckily it's been piled up with curtains and other stuff which has kept the dust off! Here's some pictures.

    The whole thing.

    The monster motor - this runs all the time and has a clutch mechanism. I think the knee operated lever lifts the head up and down leaving your hands free.

  10. My old man(upholsterer) had one very similar. It was a treadle one converted to electric. Is the blue paint original? My dads was more traditional Singer colours, black with like a flowery/scroll pattern.

  14. This is an industrial straight stitch machine fitted with a clutch motor & knee lifter for the needle foot. Looks to be in good nick with forward & reverse action.... & a bargain at that!
