    I've got a Husqvarna 6020 and no manual. Can anyone here help? In addition, I've got some bobbins but I'm not at all sure that they are the "right" bobbins for my machine. (Thanks, Huskvarna, for making life so difficult.)

    Thanks in advance! :-)

    Thanks so much for your help Janey. How do I determine the age for 15-91? Sorry about the upside down picture! I am working on that.
    We bought it at a local quilt shop and the owner said that it had just been cleaned and repaired.
    I love it except for the weight! I can't lift it at all, my husband has to lift it for mel
    Good Better Best, never let it rest till the good is better and the better best

    You are welcome. I'm glad I could help.

    As far as the age of the machine, it is hard to determine a really close age for JC serial numbers. As I mentioned before that the JC serial numbers were assigned between 1948 and 1954. There aren't really good records kept during that time. Based on the serial number of your machine, I would think that it was manufactured between 1952 and 1954.

    Sunrise450,
    Another thing that helps with approximate dating is the face plate. Older machines before 1950-52(roughly) had a fancy scroll work face plate. Yours looks to have the striated, or striped, face plate indicative of the 1950s on up machines.

    I was just given a Singer 66-18 ( I think) that has a rotten belt. Does anyone have a good source for something like that? The serial number is AG 284074 made in Elizebeth, NJ in Dec 41.
