This Red S 222K has a strong and quiet running 110 volt Singer motor, and is exceptionally smooth. It takes off to a very gentle touch and runs effortlessly. Feed dogs slide easily out of the way for embroidery work; the removable bed slides easily on and off. Foot pedal and power cord are in good working order. Tension knob, darning lever, stitch regulator, bobbin winder, light switch and light housing are all in excellent condition.
Gold scroll is bright and 98% intact. Gold scroll around the belt housing is brilliant. Notice that the accessories include the embroidery attachment, which gives this machine a complete standard set of original attachments for Featherweights with a badge issue date of 9/7/60. This was in the sixth production run for Red S 222K’s, and only 2 production runs of Singer Featherweights followed this one. Singer does not disclose how many machines were actually produced in any production run, but no more than 2499 serial numbers were set aside for that run.
Through use, this machine has acquired occasional light scratches. None of these scratches penetrate the crisp brilliant black enamel finish.
