I recently acquired a vintage sewing machine that is branded Free-Westinghouse.
I have been searching online for hours and I have not been able to find any useful information. I would love to find a manual for this model or something similar.
Here is what I know from the machine:
*It was made by the Free Sewing Machine Co. in Rockford, Illinois, USA.
*It is a model 303 according to the badge.
*There is a patent number stamped on one of the silver discs on the back: PAT 407045.
*The badge reads Free-Westinghouse.
*The number 4003 is stamped into the metal underneath.
*The plate states it was Made in Japan.
*It has a built in light rather than the type that attaches behind.
The case is a little rough, but the machine runs like a champ. I am having one cord replaced as it was very old and brittle. I cannot locate anything other than the "4003" that could be a serial number.
I would love to find more information about this machine or a similar one. However, I am not finding much on the internet.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! :)
