Singer 600 Touch and Sew
Singer 600E Touch and Sew
To the left, we have a 600 first release series.  
Notice the bobbin winder button below the stitch
length lever.  To the right, we have a 600E series.  
Notice there is no button below the stitch length
lever, and the panel is a darker color with stripes
Second Release Type
Used in the 600E
Notice it activates by pushing
straight down on the button
Rocker Type Winder
Used in most 620 series, but do think that
some 600's may have had it just as they
phased out.  But I could be wrong

630 Golden Touch & Sew
Counter
Differences is the bobbin winder systems
The bobbin winder in the 1st release 600's were difficult to adjust over the later types used.
However, with that said, the push down type (shown below far left) wasn't that much easier.

About the 600 Series Service Manuals
These manuals are as received from the factory.  The manuals will cover features specific to a particular model, and ask that one
reference a different manual for other adjustments.  
Example: The 620 manual states: Instructions appearing in the Service
Manual for Machines of Class 600 generally apply to Machines of Classes 620, 625, and 626.  Instructions for Class 603
Machines generally apply to those of Class 628.  This supplement provides instructions which apply only to Class 620, 625, 626
and 628 Machines.
 I am offering each individually for your convenience, just be aware that it may not cover all the information you
may require.  I am also offering as a complete set, that way you should be provided with all the information required, and be able to
handle any repair required.  Also note that factory manuals DO NOT cover replacing broken gears, back then, that was left for the
Repair Centers, and not the field repairman.  These are Adjustor's Manuals, not major replacement manuals.
They apply to US made models and do not cover those made in Germany, nor Japan.

More about the hook driver difference between the
early 600 & 600E series, and later 620, 630 & 640 series.
Thanks to Jan Sabin - I received a box of parts & in the hook
drivers...low and behold was an early model
600 Hook Driver...Now you can see the actual difference.  The
hook driver on the left in the photo would be used in the above far
left photo type winder.  It had an extra little flat nut, locator washer
& jam nut.  Notice the thread length difference.
Thank You Jan of Mr. Sew Dandy
