Singer 221K4 'Centennial' Sewing Machine
This Singer 221K4 Featherweight was made in 1951 and has the sought after special commemorative Centennial badge. It is in reasonably good condition, but with some wear to the gold decals and a few minor marks on the Japanned bed surface. All of the plated parts are bright and shiny with no corrosion or tarnishing.
The machine works perfectly in all respects and has been recently serviced. The rubber mounting feet (bed cushions) are in good condition having been replaced, so they are not flattened or melted as with most machines of this age.
The machine is fitted with a quiet Singer CAK motor for 230v electrical supply. For use in USA / Canada, or other 110V areas, it will be necessary to purchase a small voltage convertor (minimum 100W) which are readily available quite cheaply.
The original style D1 foot controller has been replaced at some time with the more modern clam type, which are generally regarded as more reliable and better to use.
The machine has its original attachments in a green cardboard storage box. It also has an original paper copy of the User’s Manual which has some creases and folds.
The portable storage case is in very good condition, without the typical damage most of these now have.
