The Singer 201k was named the Rolls Royce of sewing machines because it was super smooth in operation thanks to the full rotary hook and precisely made carbon steel gears.It had smoothness that other sewing machine manufacturers could only dream about. The Singer 201K was cast iron in Black with a round neck body, also made with an Aluminium body which had a square neck.The Singer 221K was the same machine without the tubular bed, it also had the lift up fabric table like the 222K Both the 222K and 221K were tiny machines known as the original Singer Featherweight machines.The light aluminium frame was only 9-3/4" wide, even with the fabric rest down it still was only 14-1/2"....!The 66K has a bed size of 14-1/2" so is much wider than the 99K The Singer 28K had what was called a vibrating shuttle or boat shuttle or bullet shuttle...the long bobbin/shuttle was inserted into its case which looked like a bullet, then the case was located into the machine and lay in a frame that looked like a boat hull.The Singer 15K was manufactured over many years from 1910 - 1964, then reproduced again in 1982 called the Singer 15N.The Singer 222K as shown has the sleeve arm or sometimes called tubular bed.
There is no reference charts available to tell us the exact model number from it's serial number.When threading the needle it had to be threaded from left to right.The machine in the image had a small type stitch length, later varieties had the stitch length lever protruding out from a large round numbered disc.I'm sure its still the smallest adult sewing machine ever produced.Its manufacturing year was 1955 to 1964 The Singer 66K is the large version of the Singer 99K.
Later versions 99K31 had a stitch length up-down lever with reverse stitch and numbered tension dial - Year 1955 The Singer 15K is always recognised by its tension unit being on the left face of the machine.
