New Singer 201-2

I just went and picked up a Singer 201-2 that I found off of Craigslist.  It came with a cabinet and fits rather nicely inside it.  I still don’t know how to disconnect the presser foot so I can remove the whole machine.  I may just figure out how to oil and grease it myself so I don’t have to take it in for a full servicing.  It does need a new power cord and light bulb.

Sometime later this week when I have better light I’ll give it a good going over.  It came with lots of bobbins, needles, several feet, the original manual, and some lubricating oil.

I’ll also take some better pictures of it when I’m not sitting in the dark. 🙂  I’m very excited.  It runs so quietly I can’t believe it.


  1. So, I just got one as well and did you ever figure out how to take it out of the cabinet? I am having the same trouble!
