Singer 221 Repaint


A multiple part series on my plans to repaint this Singer Featherweight. This isn't really going to be a how-to article because this is something you should only attempt if you have the confidence and some knowledge. This is not a beginner project. If you undertake this yourself you are doing so at your own risk; my series is not advice or instruction.

Introduction: what is a featherweight? why am I repainting it? General ideas behind this project

Stripping Down: The prep for painting, taking it apart, removing the shellac, and a primer coat

The Big Day:  The assembly of the finished machine. It's got a new color and I love it.

  2. YOU RUINED IT. SHOULD HAVE DONE IT IN BLACK. IT NOW HAS ALMOST NO VALUE. I SEE THIS FAR TOO OFTEN. A SAD DAY.

    1. This comment is beyond ridiculous.

    2. You have a right to your opinion.
      I will say this that a machine that is repainted black is still a repaint at the end of the day. At least this way any future owner will know that is it not original and they will not be falsely lead to believe that it is pristine original.
      I love my machine and I use it which is all that really matters.
