Someone online was selling a Singer 28 in a cabinet. I was intrigued as I hadn't seen a machine like this before. It was way out of budget.

Singer 28s have long bobbins and a vibrating shuttle movement.

Definitions vary but I understand an antique to be classed as being 100 plus years old, vintage 50 plus and retro 30 plus.

When I came across these at $25 each, I grabbed them. The previous owner was going to make one good machine from both of them. Each had all its bits - I decided to make them go perfectly. My goal is not perfect restoration per se, just to have them delightfully functional.

This one is dated at 1910. The one in the first photo to the left is dated at 1898. It has been loved up (used) a treat - someone/s has sewn a lot on this baby - the decals are worn on the top and the bed.

A good clean, oil and polish and then some adjustments and she runs beautifully - and quiet.

A few things drew me to this machine:

Age and functionality
Spoked handwheel
Handcrank function
Decal set: Victorian
Singer label on cover
Thin type cabinet case

I didn't have to spend anything on this machine for parts etc.



Grandson thinks its fun to play with. He's becoming familiar with it, playing with no thread. He's quite careful with it - but what care I? Highly unlikely he'll break it. Next couple of times he will have a go at following lines on paper then I have promised him that I will thread it and he'll have a go with cotton. Reckons he can't wait. Neither can I.
