You can watch this video we've made to see how to wind the bobbin, thread the machine, operate the various controls and how to sew.
It's the same powerful steel driven machine that will sew everything from sheer and lightweight to heavy fabric and even leather. It uses the same presser feet and has the same two-speed sewing capability.
It's been improved with the addition of electronic controls. It's easier to operate than ever. No need to struggle with push-in pattern cams and no confusing knobs to set. Select a pattern with the touch of a button and the machine automatically sets the stitch width and length. Lots of cool features!
This Viking 6690 is in really nice shape, very lightly used and fully restored so it sews great. It comes with a nice range of accessories, including an even feed foot and a slide-on sewing bed with a clear window lets you see your bobbin case for easy removal and insertion.
It's just come off the restoration bench here at Stagecoach Road Vintage Sewing Machine Restoration and it's running and sewing like a new machine.
Here at Stagecoach Road Vintage Sewing Machines, we are passionate about what we do, which is restoring beautiful vintage sewing machines to the best that they can be, because we are in love with the styling, the quality of the materials, the workmanship that went into these great machines, which just can't be duplicated today.
You, seriously, cannot buy a machine this good, new.
So we search out the best of these fine machines, the ones that are very lightly used, and open them up. We disassemble the tension, the motor, the bobbin case, take off the faceplate, the gear cases, the hand-wheel, the slide plate, the bottom plate, and the back access plate and get down to where the old dried-on oil and grease are. We clean out the packed-in lint and dust, remove the thread-jams, inspect the hook and the needle plate, and generally look for potential problems.
We use high-quality lubricants in all the right places, getting into those spots that aren't as obvious to the average user, and clean out the old hardened grease from the gear cases, and we test the machines to make sure that they are sewing at their best.
After all of this, each machine is carefully detailed, to bring out it's original beauty. These are some of the finest examples of mid-century styling that you'll find, and we want each machine to be the very best that it can be.
Sorry, it's SOLD!
