Singer 247 for sewing hats

Sewing machine on table. In background are tabletop ironing board, hat on stand and canvas tote with sewing pieces inside it.

An industrial machine facilitates volume piecework of hat brims and crowns. I bought this old-time Singer Model 247 for $20 and, thanks to Singer customer support, was able to identify the model and locate an operating manual, as well as identify compatible bobbins and needles.
