    I doubt if you are going to find much info on that - are you needing a manual? how to work it? have you figured out how to make it zz? What are you needing?

    I am hoping to find a manual. I see that one was sold at some point on vendio. I have a 54 necchi .. so, I may be able to figure it out, but directions would be fantastic. The button sticks a little. But, it is missing the needle clamp So, although the machine appears to run smoothly and well, I don't have the part to make the needle stay.

    To tell the truth I am not a fantastic "sewer" but love sewing machines. So, I have a collection of them that are getting ready for their new room. Here is a question, though .. I worry about what kind of oil to use and have opted for my husbands bicycle product which is an all-purpose with teflon .. any thoughts on that?

    Your bicycle oil might get that button freed up - needle clamp parts are available on sew-classic and other sites for vintage machines. I don't know about instructions.

    Are there any markings on the bottom that would indicate a Japanese made machine? Usually J- something in raised letters on the underside of the machine? Somewhere I found a list of Japanese makers of sewing machines and what their codes were...maybe on the Yahoo group site for Japanese machines

    Wow, beautiful machines. Mine is very simlar to BoJangles, except for the IDEAL decal.
    Here's a picture of my Old New Home. A model T No 3. It's called an Ideal. I like the 3/4 size of it.
    It has a motor but all the wireing is old, so I took the motor off and want to switch it over to a hand crank. It is light weight for an old machine and want to take it to Quilt Guild for when we do piecing.

    Hi Dee....what do you need help with? The New Home in the bottom pic looks just like mine except your silver parts are shinier than mine. It's very simple machine to clean. I have step by step pics of when I cleaned the inside of the area over the needle, if you need me to share them with you.

    The little do-hicky, on the top, is the tensioner believe it or not. Loosen the screw for looser tension and tighten the screw to tighten your tension. What kind of cabinet is it sitting in?

    Here is a New Home 372 - it was made by Janome - it is a very nice solid machine and easy to use. I wish it had a manual anyway.
