    Red face Help on free westinghouse machine

    Does anyone know where i can find information such as serial numbers etc on a free westinghouse sewing machine. I have what i think are the serial numbers but when i search free westinghouse i get anything but what i am searching for. Help. I would also post some pics but i don't even know how to that. Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

    Thanks for the info steve i went into these sites but it looks like it is for older machines. I did however get a phone number and with this being the holiday there was no answer but i will try again on tuesday. The two machines i am looking for information on would fall into the new home category. I say one was made in the late 50's early 60's and the other one that is in the cabinet known or listed as a commander 7000 has to have been started in the 60's cause that is about when some of the cam machines were coming out. But again thanks for the sites and i will let you know how it goes.

    Can you post a photo? It will help with identification.

    Can you possibly post a pic and i will tell you if that is what i have then maybe together we can get some info. I threaded mine and it does work but my hands aren't working very well and i am having a hard time getting the bobbin latched in. That machine is extremely heavy too is yours? I thought the suitcase it came is was just something someone had put it in but turns out it is actually the case for the machine. Has lots of cool attachments too.
