at least it will be. sounds like it would work. It's a Montgomery Ward Signature UHTJ259B. One of our neighbors stranded on curb tomorrow I will take it apart and clean and oil it the see if it runs. I will need to get some parts for it Like bobbin case and a foot. Any advice would be appreciated. I have my Mom's sewing machine a Montgomery Ward UHTJ1276 that I have cleaned and oiled and have been sewing on.
