Having introduced the Freearm Featherweight in 1953, Singer was at peak production of these machines by March of 1956 when this machine was made. Even at that, only 10,000 serial numbers were reserved for this production run. Cheaply made inexpensive foreign competition deeply affected Singer in the late 1950′s. By 1961 the Featherweight 222K Freearm, arguably Singer’s greatest accomplishment, was removed from production.
This particular Singer Freearm 222K is uncommonly smooth. It is equipped with the original case, manual and attachments. The extension bed has a few scratches, indicative of light, regular use. Considering this is a 55 year old machine, it would be fair to call her “perfect.” But make no mistake, this is no antique. This is a sewing machine completely prepared for many more years of service.
Case hinges and latches are in excellent working order. The machine has been exceptionally well cared for and runs very smoothly. Machine is equipped with a 110 volt motor. Foot pedal and power cord are in good working order. Removable bed slides easily on and off. The original manual is a bit tattered, as usual for 222 manuals, but usable.
Original Attachments include:
Original Red Case Attachment Tray
Original Singer Featherweight 222K Manual
Original Large Singer Screwdriver
Tension Screw Driver
Adjustable Zipper Foot
3 Original Singer Bobbins
All attachments are rust free and in excellent cosmetic and working condition.
