Featherweights are like buses

 You don't see one for ages, then half a dozen arrive at once

We had two Singer Featherweights in for rewiring recently, but we haven't had one for sale for three or four years.

Last week these four arrived in a bunch;

A white one
 Two 221ks

 And a 222
All in good condition with cases and pedals, I've already looked at the wiring and they need a bit of work, but all are pretty good for their age.

They will be for sale, serviced, tested and guaranteed, on our website soon, let us know if one, or more, of them takes your fancy.

Featherweight wiring after...

Remember the two featherweight sockets In this entry?
This is the worse of the two after rewiring;

First I cleaned out all the melted rubber, and bits of insulation.
Then I put new sleeves on the motor wires and added new wires to the ends.
Completely new cables to the light completed the job.
All the connections were covered with heat-shrink sleeving.
After reassembly the machine was tested and is now back with it's happy owner.
