Reproduction hand crank for Singer or similar style machines. Please read full description!
Your machine MUST HAVE A SPOKED WHEEL AND MOUNT on the side under hand wheel. See the vertical protrusion and center hole in the 5th photo. Your machine must have the same type or the hand crank will not fit.
Some orders I receive have Chinese decals on them like the 4th photo. If you do not want them they can easily be painted over with a shiny black paint or nail polish. You can also use flat black paint and then shiny varnish or clear nail polish over them. Some people have scraped off the decals.
This hand crank will only work with Singer or similar styles because they attach with the screw, parts are made to work with this type. I include a page which I wrote with photos on hand crank conversion, it explains how to grease the gears, important for smooth operation. My spoked wheels come with directions for installing.
Vintage electric Japanese sewing machines that are Model 15 type can usually be converted to hand crank machines. The electric motor is removed, only one screw holds it in place, the hand wheel must be replaced with a spoked wheel and then the hand crank can be attached, the screw goes into the same hole where the motor was attached. See 5th photo.
Hand crank sewing machines give you extreme control in quilt block piecing. Do realize that you use your left hand to guide your fabrics and the right hand to crank. A hand crank is very quiet and a very relaxing way to sew. With no electric tail you can hand crank anywhere! Take it outdoors, camping, workshops, etc.
Shipping one or two will fit in a USPS Padded Priority envelope to save you money to a US address.
Shipping out of US send a conversation and where you live so I can set up a custom order.
Before I ordered the hand crank, I had some questions about determining if the crank would fit my machine, and Donna was very prompt with her answers, even sending me a picture of the hole where the crank would be mounted. It arrived promptly, and installation was a breeze! I'm delighted that this antique machine is usable again.

LOVE it!! Purchased with the wheel spoke to modify my singer 66 to hand crank from power motor. Very smooth and quiet! Only issue is the mount wiggle sometimes, might add a rubber washer or something to stablize it a little more not too big of a deal at this point.
