This little machine was bought on that auction site, supposedly in working condition, but came to us totally seized up with rust and full of sand.  Some of the surface paint has bubbled up and has aluminum oxidation underneath.  It appears that sometime in its life, it has been standing in water for an extended period of time.  It came from the gulf coast, so I named it "Hurkie", which is short for hurricane.  The motor has been removed and it has been fitted with a small handcrank.

This little VS machine was found at an antique auction, and the coffin box top was beyond repair.  The machine sews nicely, and is the machine that we use in our parade vehicle named "T-Rag" that we put together in August 2009.

Singer 99K31 Serial# EL587714   Mfg Date: 1956  
This machine was originally an electric-operated machine.  It has been converted to a hand-operated machine with the addition of an after-market hand crank attachment and spoked wheel.  I modified the original electric portable case to accommodate the extra length of the HC while attached to the machine, by cutting a hole in the end of the case cover and attaching an old rusty rear inspection plate from my junk bin to cover the hole.  The machine is designed to do straight stitch with backtack.

This machine recently arrived from a local collector, and has not been tested.   The motor powers up and the mechanism turns freely, but it's unknown if the machine sews.

1960 Singer 216G Serial # PC000190   Treadle/Handcrank Zigzag
       
This machine and treadle was made in the Singer Factory at Karlsruhe Germany some time around 1960, as best that my friends at Needlebar.org can determine.  According to the User Manual, the class 216G is "for combined zigzag and straight stitching for household and manufacturing".  I'm not sure if there were two different treadles supplied for either household or manufacturing or not, but this treadle has the look of a "mini industrial stand" to me.  The wooden slab (not presswood) top is 36” long , 18" wide, and about 7/8” thick.  There are no signs of any additional fold-out leaves ever being present.  It also has a pint-sized drip pan mounted in it with screws from underneath.  It has rails mounted under the left end of the top for a single (missing) drawer.  The cast iron straight-legged stand has a 12” flywheel, which is common for household treadles, but it has wheels on all 4 legs, which is different than most straight-legged Singer treadles that I've seen, both household and industrial.

1901 Singer 27K2 Convertible Hand/Treadle
  Serial# P533550      
         
This machine was recently acquired from an owner in Comanche Oklahoma.   It is an example of one of Singer's "Convertible" machines produced with multiple uses in mind.  This unit has dual motive power and also dual use capability.  It can be powered by hand crank or by treadle, and is both a stationary cabinet-mounted machine as well as a portable hand crank machine.  The machine can be removed from the cabinet without tools, to allow the machine to be carried to a table top for remote use away from the treadle cabinet.  The bobbin winder is driven on the rim of the balance wheel by either the hand attachment or the treadle.
