I don't just service my machines I totally go over all parts, inspect and cleanthem and adjust if necessary. It is not necessary to totally disassemble a machine and put it all back together again, the factory built them to last a long time and taking them apart can cause damage unless it seriously needs to be done.
It shows signsthat it had been well maintained though the years. light bulb works, motor has been checked out and cleaned inside near armature to make sure that brushes make perfect electrical contact,brushes have been cleaned, internal and externalwiring is safe.Foot controller also cleaned and adjusted to run at full capacity.Runs and sews perfectly.

Just remember to use the large print manual enclosedfor how and when to lubricate and directions forusing the attachments. Other manuals are available online from Singer and other sitesand worth downloading for future use. There are a large verity of attachments for different applicationsavailable on if needed.
Case is in EXCELLENTCONDITION andshow very light wear for it's age. No musty smell, no worn corners. It has also been stabilized in and out with a product that is similar to what the factory may have used while it also seals out old smells etc. Inside lining also very decent, some lining that has become unattached over the yearshas been reattached. See extra photos of machine and casebelow.
This beautiful Featherweight has a rare chrome edgedhand wheel,it's attachments, large print manual and original manual, bobbins, new bottle of odorlessoiland case with a few extras with original top tray. I would advise to use the new odorless oil Singer makes (included) and use new grease to lube motor tubes and gears, The old ones are not odorless. Never oil the motor, use grease, unplug your machine when not in use and remember the light gets hot! Lots of extra photos below.
