    Free Westinghouse Type E Golden Machine ...Questions

    Hello, Some nice person donated this machine for a mission project. The motor runs, it is in great shape. I do not have a manual and am not sure how to thread it. My first test sew (guessing on threading) was not promising. Before i go any further, does anyone have information on this machine. I am very interested in diagrams of the tension adjuster.

    Thanks,

    Bonnie

    I'm thinking those need special needles and the hand wheel turns away from you
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    These need a short needle, called a CC or a Boye 2 1/2 or a 38Y1, or a 40F1.
    It does not use a 206x13 which will eventually damage the bobbincase and affect the tension. The 38Y1 has a different timing length than the 206x13. There are many places on the internet that will say to use the 206, please don't.
