Welcome …

I started this site simply to share some thoughts as well as some of the beauty that I see in my world,  At this point, its probably fair to insert a disclaimer or two.  Every word that I type might well be total rubbish.  At best, it is only my opinion.  More likely, its just some silly notion that I’ve found rattling around in my head.  If you find anything on my site that makes you laugh, makes you smile, makes you frown, makes you cuss or … my fondest hope …. makes you THINK …. then creating this site will have been well worth while.

I hope you will enjoy sharing my ramblings and I encourage you to jump in and comment on anything I write.  Critique all you like.  My only request is that you address the article, rather than attacking the author.

  1. Hi Andrew. I have a Singer 320k2 that i picked up at a garage sale for $50. However, the timing is out. I’m finding it hard to find instructions on resetting the timing. My Daughter wants to learn to sew and the only other machine I have is an industrial one.

    • Hi Clinton, I’m so sorry to have taken so long to respond to your message. I am rather snowed under at the minute. I’m afraid I don’t have a service manual for the 320K2 and that machine has a unique under carriage, compared with the other swing needle Singers …. necessary to accommodate the same amount of hardware in a smaller base because of the free arm design (the first free arm Singer, I think).
      I do have a service manual for the 206, 306, 319 and even 401 …. but none of those machines are free arm models.
      However, if you’re referring to the needle/hook timing, then I expect that the timing procedures might very well be the same.
      I’ll email you a copy, just in case it proves helpful.
      I’d be keen to know how you get on with your machine. The price certainly sounds right. Do you have the fashion disks to go with it?

  2. Andrew i have a singer 319k and i am interested in using the 15×1 needles you have suggested. I can file out the metal of the original bobbin case but was thinking about using a bobbin case from a Borletti sewing machine which has the necessary space for preventing the needle from striking the metal .
