    probably clockwise. At least my door locks turn that way.

    in Newfoundland...i remember them comming to visit when i was ten and telling us Newfoundland was now part of Canada.
    This great uncle only had one arm because he lost the other "making a turn signal" while driving and he told me to be very careful when i learned to drive, believe me i never forgot that...family name is Evans, which is very common in Canada and Great Britain....sorry really off topic

    I have one the same I will check out which way to turn it, I was also given a key just the other day, if it fits mine I can send it to you if you want it. Let me check it out first OK.

    BTW if your DH damages that case I will RUN across the pond and beat him to death with a feather duster :twisted:

    This is my one:

    A Singer 201K sews the most wonderful straight stitch and one of Singer's best machines.
    Make sure the feather duster is full of dust first - and get right in his face!!!! :)

    I have one just like that and no key. My DH opened it with a flat head screwdriver.

Would be lovely to make another connection of how trade was conducted in this island country in the 1930's. Newfoundland was an independent country until 1949 so that kind of thing fascinates me!

    hmmmm.... how do I find this out?
    And she is beautiful. Not too often are the decals in that good of shape or that bright. You have a real treasure there.

    My eyes popped when I saw that beautiful machine. For those who enjoy Singer history of how their sewing machine came to be, you might enjoy a summer trip to the Thousand Islands on the St. Lawrence River and tour the Singer mansion on one of the islands. Many vintage machines are placed throughout the mansion.
