Very nice.

I guess I'm an oddity as a heterosexual young male that wants to sew stuff, but I figure it's a good skill to have

I am also a hetero male (not so young) that wants to sew stuff and thinks it is a very good skill to have!   We may be a little odd but I think that is a good thing.  I am up to 6 sewing machines and a serger.

I know this is an old thread and I haven't gotten all the way through all the posts. Anyway I thought since everyone else was showing off their baby pictures, I would show my little odd ball too. I got her off of Freecycle. She runs really well. I had never heard of this brand before. Apparently the company makes vaccumes too.

Wow, there are some gorgeous machines on here!

Here are mine -

My first sewing machine, a Christmas present from my parents  Smiley I still keep it as a back-up



My sewing machine I use now. It's my Mom's old machine. She bought it new almost 10 years ago.



A machine I picked up on Freecycle that I'm trying to fix up for a friend..



And my newest baby, my Mom bought this at a yard sale and just gave it to me last night. She was hoping I could use it for heavier fabrics (vinyl, etc). According to it's serial number it's a 99K and was made in 1922.
If anyone knows anything about these I would love to find more info. It had a lever that you worked with your knee (as opposed to a foot pedal) so I'll have to make or find one before I can sew with this. However we plugged it in and it sounds great Smiley

The wiring of my 99 was altered or something at some point so it kind of scares me... but hubby promises to check it out thoroughly. The hand crank is a great idea!  Smiley

I see the knee levers on eBay once in a while.  It can also be wried (or re-wired) to accept any 2 wire controller.

I have a very indepth review of the Singer 99 (since you said you are looking fo rmore information about them) on my blog.  I think it's ok for me to post a link that that here.

Wah!!! That singer is the exact same one my mom had when I was a kid!  The one she taught me to sew on when I was maybe 7 or 8 years old!!  What a blast to see that. Smiley  Hers was in a cabinet/table thingy and my feet couldn't reach the floor to press the pedal so she had this lever thing that you could push sidways with your knee to make it run.  I've never seen one quite like it since my childhood, a waaaaay long time ago.  We also had a little tiny kid-sized singer that was just as well made as the big machines.  Thanks for the trip down memory lane!
