    I just purchased a 301A long bed about 2 weeks ago. I found bobbins, light bulb, and walking foot at www.sew-classic.com. Everything I ordered came very quickly. It did not have the owner's manual but I went to the Singer website and downloaded it for free. She sews like a dream. I can't wait to quilt on it.

    The serial number is on the bottom near the bobbin

    the knob to lower the feeddogs is difficult to turn by hand but there is a slot in the middle of the knob for a screwdriver and then it turns easily....please do not use a power tool, my 301A begged me to key this reply quickly.

    gypsyatheart,

    A very small flat blade screw driver will open those bent wood cases.


    Opening cases like that is a treasure hunt. You really never know what you're gonna find.

    My husband, who is quickly turning into a sewing machine mechanic, got the cases open. They both have the spindle bobbins. The two machines in the cabinets are a Nechii Supernova, which is a bit stiff yet, and a Singer 404. It is in almost perfect condition and has a beautiful, straight stitch, even though it is still loosenly up. She'll be a beautiful addition to our sewing ministry. Thanks so much for all your help!
