    New Westinghouse

    I have an old New Home and it looks just like your machine.

    I just saw one on CL http://indianapolis.craigslist.org/atq/2862176575.html
    I think it has been there a while and now more reasonable price.

    Hello,

    I just got one of these gold machines today. I am working on getting them ready for a mission project. It came in a cabinet. The serial number is alb274826. I am interesting in any information you could share (source of spare parts, manuals etc). It is in great shape and needs little work, just some light cleaning. I have not done a test sew yet.
    Thanks,

    Bonnie

    Ok These are NOT a clone or a 15 at all. The balance wheel on mine turns the opposite way of other machines. It is threaded different and has a different bobbin. I have some that are very light weight and one that is a godzilla.

    My neighbor will give me their Free Westinghouse if I restore it. It is similar to this. Would I be able to get bobbins for this? I don't want to rip it apart and fix it up if I can't get a bobbin for it.
