    Its a Windsor made by Montgomery Wards .... it was trying to compete with singer .... well I took my first radiation treatment on Tuesday and after the hubby wanted to ride for a while so went antiqueing (may favorite road trips) and we found SIL in the small town of Hobart Ok. and we brought her home. My sister in law is going to refinish her cabinet and well Im gonna clean her up and give her a whirl on the quilting train ...... ha ha ha ....... I simply love this machine and she works good free wheeling .... she made my week ...can hardly wait to get her going needless to say my hubby is great too

    I named her SIL for my sister in law

    Is it a 3/4 size machine? It looks very much like my 1928 Leader made by National. Apparently only National put the little access panel on the front of the machine.
