    My "new" machine I received from my late mother-in-law's estate.
    It is a Damascus Grand. It was sold by Montgomery Ward in the early 1920s. I am missing the belts :( and the manual (which I have already located on line). If any one can give me a suggestion on finding the belts and needles let me know.

    The beautiful machine

    Oh what a great thing to have!!

    When I purchased my treadle machine, someone told me to go to the auto supply store to buy the belts for it -- of course, I haven't been there yet but it sounds like a good idea :wink:

    I found this site, but you have to call or email them they deal in parts for antique sewing machines.

    Love that quarter-sawn oak! Does it take the round-top needles? I may have some.

    If it is a regular treadle machine, I can help. You can order a treadle belt from a Singer Dealer. and also the small belt(Ring) for the bobbin winder.
    PM me for the dealer info. if you don't have one near you.
