    Montgomery Wards model S- 40 With a long Bobbin

    Found this machine in my shed today , and dont remember where or when i bought it,???? Maybe the machine fairy brought i. it has no attachments , or manual. but it does work ,needs new wiring for pedal and new rollers on the wheels that drive the motor. Anyone know anything about the machine??? would appreciate any info, Also neighbor gave me a HuSQVARNA-VIKING MODEL number 63-60 with very few attachments and no manual.. finally got it threaded. . works good ,but needs cleaning and only one bobbin, any help will be appreciated .

    Check the cam stack - is it cracked?

    The harp is so nice and large. A person could get a large quilt in there!

    Sorry, but I only see the Viking model.
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.

    Wow - that little machine is cool - I wonder if it was a toy or what??? Looks like it would be fun to test it out.

    The thing in the back of the Viking is probably a disk or what ever - it changes the stitches - there should be a cam stack or something inside it. I got one once at a GW and that part was broken inside - they aren't repairable - if it all works you have a really nice machine.
