- Cabinets for Class 127 Machines
- Manual for the 127 & 128 (2.7 MB)
Singer Class 127 Sewing Machines feature a low shank and a vibrating hook. They use long bobbins and 15x1 needles.
A very old threading diagram for a 127.
The Following Compliments of Sharon Reese:
Really pretty 127 with Sphinx decals. (One Sphinx is on the bed and one on the pillar under the bobbin winder.) Dates to March 6, 1929.
This is the best I could get of the back. The back of the arm and pillar are just as ornate as the fronts.
This cabinet has never been refinished.
Are you wondering why it's called a 7-drawer cabinet? The 7th drawer is in the middle section and isn't easy to see upon first glance. It's a tilt-out drawer.
