SINGER SEWING MACHINE
211 W 151
This machine performs the same functions as
the 111 W 151. It is a newer model, more
streamlined and modern in appearance, and has
some design features not found in the 111 W 151
machine. (See figure 9-3 1.) These features include
a new lubrication system, a thread take-up lever
guard, a thread lubricator, and a new stitch
The 211 W 151 sewing machine is a high-speed
(4,000 rpm maximum), single-needle, lockstitch-
type machine, designated for sewing medium to
heavyweight fabrics. It is belt-driven and has a
rotary hook on a vertical axis, which makes two
revolutions for each stitch.
It has a safety clutch (fig. 9-32) that is
adjustable to suit the sewing conditions; this
protects the sewing hook from damage. If the
hook is obstructed by foreign matter, the clutch
will disengage and re-engage only after the area
has been cleared. The feeding mechanism is a
compound drop and needle feed with the longest
stitch at five stitches per inch.

bar stroke of 1 5/16 inches, a bed that is 20 3/8
inches long by 7 inches wide, and a space of 10
1/2 inches to the right of the needle.
The needles used in this machine vary
according to the clearance under the presser foot.
