Very good example of the famed Singer 30k chain stitch sewing machine c. 1912, fully cleaned and serviced with original cast iron base. Has had 65/75 parts disassembled, checked and machine polished before reassembly. As far as I’m aware every single part is present, correct and original, every part and individual screw is free and easy. Currently waiting for new needles to arrive for the final test and timing adjustment, will be supplied with five new needles. It does have some evidence of light crazing and the usual chips, mostly around the base. My personal method is to seal the body with Carnauba and Montan waxes, with a simple black marker pen used to colour any bare metal chips prior to waxing. This provides a good result for display purposes but is easily removeable without any adverse affects. This machine has had 17 hours of work, 53 cotton balls, 29 Dremel brushes, 40+ ear buds and only the correct solvents used to bring it to it’s present condition, although I have left some evidence of tarnishing just to provide some evidence of it’s age. I do not use water, oil, detergents or (god forbid) WD40 in the restoration of any of my machines.
