Singer Touch & Sew
This Model 603E (circa 1963) is one of the last machines Singer produced with metal gears.
Many users report that the switch to nylon/plastic gears was a big mistake for Singer.

The switch to plastic gears, and the problems caused thereby, is the reason some users gave the later models of the machine the nickname "Touch & Swear".
