Singer 221 Motor
This is not a Genuine Singer Motor - It is a Generic Replacement Motor  I have customized & fitted the Singer Badge so your machine may
maintain that Genuine Singer Image.  I did remove the Generic badging.
The motor is $85.00, with a $20.00 core charge - Please send me your old motor in return & I will refund up to $20.00 when it arrives,
depending on condition.  This is a New Motor - See Other Pictures below, including the original Alpha Badge that has been replaced with a
Genuine Singer 221 Badge.  I've seen these on other sites for $142.00, and they do not carry the Singer Badge

The Singer Featherweight 221 - The American
Classic Jam proof hook system...well...so it
was said, like the 301.  I remember my Singer
Store Manager telling me stories when the 301
came out & demonstrating it at the Fresno Fair
Grounds...the 221, like the 301 really was jam
proof.  He would run the machine without
material...thread only...at high speed...NO
MATERIAL...just spooled the thread out like
crazy.  However...unfortunately...that really is
not quite true.  The 221 & 301 are both subject
to thread jamming.  The reason - the loop
guard gets damaged during the normal sewing
cycle...it is a factory setting, and should not be
altered.  To restore to a jam proof condition,
repair the loop guard.
