70.1 The Singer 3116 Simple is easy to use and it is not too expensive, however it has some issues. Owners complain that it is difficult to set the tension and that there is frequent thread jamming. Also, there are quite a few comments alluding to poor quality construction. Having said that, it is not the lowest rated Singer we have investigated and there are owners that really do like it. The 3116 has 18 built-in stitches and is fairly basic but it comes with a few bells and whistles.
