    No pic yet, but I picked up an old green Zigzag New Home/Janome with a vertical bobbin yesterday for $20.00 w/ decent cabinet (water spot, of course, because folks think over-watered plants belong on top of the cabinets LOL).
    I'd like to learn more about it - approx age (60's?), where to find free (if possible) instruction manual, how to clean & oil, which currently sold attachments will fit, and so on.
    DIL just began sewing - her first project - we recovered our old couch & rocker cushions, extra throw pillows for their home. Now she is interested in mending, etc so I grabbed this machine at local Goodwill when I saw it & want to get her started with the right info.
    If anyone can help me, I'll be grateful.
    Thanks & hope your weekend is going well.

    PS, they also had a Precision Belvedere straight stitch, but thought if DIL mends, she may prefer zigzag ability on the machine. It is also vertical bobbin, needs new bobbin case - Singer store here sells one to fit.

    Here's a free threading diagram:

    I found this website where you can purchase a downloadable manual:
    http://sewingonline.co.uk/library/NEWHOME-532.html

    And this one where you can purchase a printed manual:
    http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine...w_Home_532.htm

    and actually there are a lot of other websites that sell the manual. Tried to find a free one but couldn't.
