    Was wondering if anyone has any information on this machine? I am soon to be a proud owner, at least if all goes well, and was wondering where to find some information on it. I am an avid quilted and woudl love to make some quilted horse blankets and this is why I need an industrial machine. I know I am nuts! LOL

    Are you sure it is a 33-15? I have a 30-20 which is similar to the 30-15 and they are wonderful :) Is this a modern machine or an older?

    I am not sure for I am traveling out of state and a dear friend found her for me. She ahs not updated me yet about the model. I am wondering myself if it is a 30 -15 or a 30 -20. I believe it to be an older model and I dont really care for as long as she works that is all that matters. I cant wait to fin dout more and once I do I can update.

    I have singer industrial sewing machine. They are very plain not much for decals. These were used in sewing factories many years ago. They are a work horse of a machine. Mine is not sewing right as I don't have a manual for it to figure it out. I feel like selling it now that I have a new machine.

    Yes! I'd love a pdf of the manual for the 33-15. As soon as I ever get the room for it, I'm bringing one over from my Dad's house. I'd get it now, but there just isn't a place yet for it. Guess I could talk hubby into getting rid of the victrola...

    They take regular oiling, and I still need the diagram from my manual to thread it, but it is a great machine for actually quilting your machine. It has a 10.5" harp space, so lots more room to move your quilt through. It is a high shank machine. I got an adapter for mine so I can use my 1/4" snap on quilting foot, or stitch in the ditch foot. It will also sew through anything. I made my denim purse that I carry. This machine sewed through 8 layers of denim like it was nothing. My regular machine couldn't do it.

    Ok where di you find the adapter? Woudl love that. I ahve no troubles with my Elna 7300 going through layer upon layer of canvas and all but I am sure she would love to work on her class of cottons instead.
