    Question Morse Zig Zag Machine

    HI! I'm brand new here
    I came across this machine a few days ago, I was looking in a consignment store for a sewing machine and the lady said I could HAVE this one! It weighs a ton, but it's been well maintained and works perfectly!

    I was wondering if anyone knows where I can get a manual for this for free, a pdf download or something?

    Thanks!!!

    xcynicalsinnerx,
    Welcome to the Quilting Board.

    You lucky person you. That type of Morse is quite liked here. You'll need to find the model number to get the proper manual, then go to Relics: http://www.tias.com/stores/relics/ and start your search. You might get lucky and find someone here that has an extra or a link to a download.

    I think it is a Morse Model 4300. I agree with Joe, TIAS should have the manual for about $17.00 for a hard copy or $10.00 for a PDF download.

    http://sewusa.com/Threading_Diagrams...ng_Diagram.htm , has threading instructions as well as a manual. I love all the chrome on your pretty blue Morse. Kinda reminds me of the dash board on my 1963 Chevy Impala.

    Our quilting guild is auctioning a Morse, turquoise and white, on Sept 4, in Franklin, TN. It was donated by a lady to help benefit the wounded soldiers. I described it to DD as a 1957 Chevrolet of sewing machines. All that chrome, color and flash. It is quite pretty and a little different model than yours, but the car description prompted me to comment.

    It looks like one I saw at an estate sale in Tigard, Oregon recently. It was sitting at the end of a dark hallway (outside of a bedroom full of all kinds of fabric that they sold in bundles). They wanted $5 for it and I didn't buy it - I have been kicking myself since then. I even emailed them and asked if they still had it would they save it for me so I could come back for it - they never answered my email so I assume that someone else got lucky!

    I know that I learned my lesson ... the next time I see a machine I think I might want for that kind of price, I am going to buy it and decide later whether to keep it or not ...
