Singer 185K

I bid for a Singer 185K sewing machine on ebay, but can't collect it until the weekend after next as the seller is away. It cost me £10.49, but is as pictured with no attachments or anything apparently :-(. So not sure how good a deal that really is. Am hoping its sturdy enough to sew some things my modern Janome can't manage like multiple layers of leather, denim, canvas, heavy topstitching thread etc.

Its not pretty like a 201K, but is basically a 1958-60 version of a 99K. Let's hope it does the job.

If it's running, I would say that's a very good deal indeed; congratulations!

I've never worked on a 185, but I assume the same maintenance rules apply - give it a good oiling & have at it - it should serve you well!

I hope it's running when you receive it, because if it is, I think you are going to really enjoy its work horse ability. Got my fingers crossed!!

I think it's just as pretty as a 201, but in a different way. Love it--congratulations!
