Singer Featherweight 221K4 Sewing Machine


221K4 Featherweight


This 221K4 was made in 1955 and so has the later style striated faceplate. Its condition is above average for its age but it does have the normal light pin marks on the bed. All the plated parts are bright and shiny with no corrosion or tarnishing. There have been a couple of tiny (2-3 mm) chips in the bed enamelling which have been touched in. The gold decals are in very good condition with just the very slightest signs of thinning of the outer lines along the front and back edges of the bed.

The machine works perfectly in all respects and has been recently serviced. The rubber mounting feet (bed cushions) are in good condition having recently been replaced and so they are not flattened or melted as with most machines of this age.

The machine is fitted with a very quiet Singer CAK7 motor for 240v European electrical supply. For use in USA / Canada etc. it will be necessary to purchase a small voltage convertor (minimum 100W) which are readily available quite cheaply.

The machine has its original accessories and a scanned copy of the User’s Manual will be supplied as a pdf file. The case is in very good clean condition.

The above average condition of this machine can be seen by carefully examining the images below. Clicking on any the images will activate the zoom function.
