that is the deal of the year! 


Oh man! Its a deal of the year indeed. Derek what is the difference of the 100 to the 110? What's better?Can you educate me please? I'm talking about the singer keyhole machine. I am a sewing machine freak too and I own some vintage sewing machines. I have been so interested with the singer keyhole machine ever since but it seems impossible to find one here in the Philippines.  I own a Reece 101 as that is the keyhole machine common here and not the Singer. I am planning to buy another keyhole machine but I am trying to decide if I'll go Singer or I should stick with another Reece or maybe give Durkopp a try. I've seen your post in our Machine freak forum about the Singer keyhole machine that you are selling. So far its not letting me sleep for days now.  


Again, I'm not an expert...  The main differences between the 100 and the 110 that I've read is the 100  is a Double chain stitch and lays reinforcing cord. For cut-first buttonholes (5/8" to 1 1/2") in closely woven fabrics. "Left handed".  and the 110 Sews and cuts buttonholes (5/8" to 1 5/8") and eyelet-end buttonholes with and without bar, with double chain stitch (Singer buttonhole stitch); lays reinforcing cord; detachable pattern wheel. LONG travel machine.
Now reading this it seems the 100 may not have a detachable pattern cam wheel while the 110 does.   the 110 can do a larger size and do more than the 100.  Also look at the 99w75.  It's very similar to the 110.   The 100 cuts first then sews which is used more for suits as it produces a cleaner looking keyhole. 

The 99W only makes the stitch size that the wheel tells it.  It's not like the 101 that you can adjust the sizes as you go.  I believe the Durkopp does that also.  Now with that said, there are like 5 different types of 101s, and not all of them are adjustable.  Some only do one size.   You need to look at the plate on the right side to see what it's set up for. 

99's are tough to find anywhere by the way.  And finding the cams is almost harder so for a Keyhole machine that you can use and find, I'd go with the 101.   But if you want the vintage aspect then go with the 99W.     I don't know much about the Durkopp but I've seen a black one that looks pretty cool.

Very helpful info here Derek. Appreciate you taking time in responding to my question. I guess I will have to see if i can find a 99w110 locally but if not i might end up with another reece 101. I see that you are selling a black body reece 101 mine is the green body but the black one looks cool. If only freight charges for these mean machines are cheap then I won't think twice in buying your black reece.

No I don't have two. Just the one. I "bought" it the other day but because it is a beast the logistics take a bit of organisation and so I only picked it up today. Found the extra cams in the little tin drawer under the table.

BTW this is the only other 99W I have seen in Australia. I am hoping to one day pry it from the cold dead hands of the woman who owns it (so far she has refused an offer of $2,000 - not that I actually had that much to spend, I just thought I would throw a number at her to see if she would budge). What is it? Is it a 110 or a 130? Or is it a 75?

I'm looking for a stand for a D.B. Die Works No. 39 kick press. Also, looking for dies for the machine. Any leads? Thanks!

Do you have the actual die for this kick press? I have a contact who might be able to help you. For the stand i'm afraid i won't be able to help.

I have the kick press. I am just in need of dies and a stand though I think I may have to build my own stand.

If anyone is in Omaha there is a load of Singer 111, 211, 69, etc. and Union Special spares for sale on Craigslist. US$100. It would be good if someone could save this lot before someone turns it into "jewellery" or scrap metal. Some of it is NOS.
