looking for FREE ) owner manual source. looking for manufacturer & any information regarding this machine. found at estate sale - asking price 75$. bought for 10$. either belt of shaft issue. took to local machine guru. new belt, completely cleaned, lubed & gneral serviceing. i worked on my truck for years, never my sewing machines except gen'l clean/lube. anyway total now is 95 + 10 into it. started looking for feed dog/darning foot cover. then got absorbed in finding anything at all about this machine. did some more interior cleaning. the belt disentegrated w black rubber dust all inside belt area including the stitch thingy for the discs. thought that might become an issue later, so cleaned as much of the black rubber dust from all around moving parts as could.
i have found info about sources for wards machines up thru national it's subsequent names etc and on to the erra of wards machines produced in japan by "Happy" sewing machine manufacturing. seems they made for brother, sears, wards & more?
anyway, this is my first post to this forum even tho i have read every page here and looked at every picture - some dozens of times. love this forum! thanks if you can lead me to any more search wordings, etc. have done the usual searches by ser #, model #. thanks in advance.
