1964 SINGER 240K 12 HAT / CAP SEWING MACHINE

Today it's a sewing machine I've been waiting for quite a while.

The Singer 240K 12 Hat / Cap Sewing machine.
This one is from 1964.   It's a chain stitch machine with no bobbin...
Still needs cleaned up and then I have to figure out how to thread the thing.
It's actually pretty small.   I'm hoping to make some caps with it.
Dates to 1964.
Lot's of thing to wind the thread around.
The underside... I guess they were making red caps before I got it.   I love having the right tool for the job.   I'm hoping this will be my hat machine... Then I can make some vintage caps!
