INDUSTRIAL STRENGTH SINGER 306W SEWING MACHINE
Singer Model #306W
IN VERY NICE CONDITION
INDUSTRIAL STRENGTH Singer Model 306W ZigZag Sewing Machine, serial number: W1589385, made in Bridgeport, Connecticut in 1954. If you have a heavy duty sewing job to do, this is the machine for you. The "W's" are built in Singer"s Industrial Machine plant in Bridgeport, Connecticut. This is the plant where all of Singer's toughest American machines come from. Machine shows very well with much less than average wear and tear for a 57 year old machine, and sews as well as the day it left the factory and really lives up to Singer's reputation for sewing excellence. And this baby really has industrial strength too, it breezed right through all my samples with ease. We purchased this Singer 306 from it's original owner, who received it as a wedding gift in 1956. She took awesome care of this machine for over 5 decades (we've serviced it for her twice in the last few years, so we know it's been well cared for), but now her eyesight no longer allows her to sew and sold us this beautiful Singer 306. This is just a beauty. Machine has been cleaned and lightly oiled with Authentic Singer Machine Lube and has had the timing and tolerances checked and is perfect. 6 to 30 stitches per inch, with reverse and zigzag. Simple to use Visually Illustrated Controls, makes sewing on this machine easy even for beginners. All steel construction, no plastic gears in this baby. Full Rotary Hook System. This machine accepts standard Singer small black Cams (Complete with 4 included Cams) for doing utility and designer stitch work. Steel drive links just like the full size industrial machines. Nice condition original Singer foot controller and brand new cords. Comes with a digital copy of the Singer 306 Owners Manual on CDrom in .pdf format. This will guide you through the process of threading the upper needle thread as well as filling the bobbin and selecting the right needle and tension settings for the job at hand. It really makes sewing like a pro easy. Most importantly, it will show you exactly how to lube, disassemble, reassemble, and maintain your machine so that it will last another 57 years. This machine is 100% ready to go, right out of the box. Everything needed to sew, including the thread used in these pictures, will be included in the package. As an added bonus, included will be, (1) Combination Zipper/Cording Foot, (4) Singer Steel Industrial Bobbins, (4) Singer Stitch Pattern Cams, (1) Singer 306 Owners Manual on CDrom, (1) Bottle of Singer Sewing Machine Oil, and all other pictured accessories.

Here is a sample of some Upholstery Cording I did on this machine. One hour on this machine and you will be doing these like a Pro too. It's fairly easy. First, you take a small strip of your Material and wrap it around a stretch of cording rope, and sew it tight with the included right or left hand Zipper/Cording feet. Then, blanket that in two more layers of your Material and sew it tight against the Cord once more. Then trim your excess, and you should have a nicely corded peice. With this machine and the included attachments, you will be able to do your own Upholstery work like a Pro with just a few hours of practice.

Steel Industrial Sized Bobbins and Full Rotary Hook System
We used Coats and Clark T26 (Size 69 equivalent) Nylon Upholstery thread for sewing our samples in this sale. It is water resistant and incredibly strong and made for indoor and outdoor use, such as but not limited to, car seats, furniture upholstery, boat covers, horse and pig blankets, car covers, motorcycle seats, repairing sails and tarps, etc. If you are planning on sewing heavy materials, I would suggest you purchase some of this or similar Heavy Duty thread. This type of thread is available at Walmarts, JoAnns Fabric Stores, and most sewing machine dealers for about $2 a spool(150 yards).
Perfect For All Your Webbing Projects (Repairing Sails, Tents, Packs, etc..)
