I don't know if a Morse 1000 is old enough to be considered vintage. It does have an all metal body, and looks like a well built machine. I cannot find ANY information on this machine. If you know anything you would like to share, I would appreciate it. It appears to sew, except that the needle is in the left position when it should be in the middle, so some stitches don't form properly. It is at my daughter's right now, but I will get a picture of it, if that will help.
