All Black Singer 128 and Bentwood Carrying Case
At the time of this writing, we have three Singer 128s. It was Elizabeth's idea that we add this all-black one to our collection. Where other 128s have chrome finished parts, this machine has black-plated parts. It is a blueing process that covers both slide plates, face plate, and bobbin winding mechanisms. Apparently, some black accessories were also supplied with these machines.
The crinkle finish does appear to wear well and resists rust. The finish may be referred to as wrinkled, matte, textured, and godzilla.
I personally don't care for crinkle paint machines because I've never been successful in cleaning them. I must admit, however, that I am becoming attracted to this machine as it is the only all black machine we have. But I have no plans to use it to sew anything for several reasons which will be explained below.
