    It was the least expensive machine we got that day, too. The slide plates are corroded badly enough that they no longer meet properly and they're loose. It looks like the ones from the Type A that we got that day fit, though, so they shouldn't be too bad to replace if we decide to do so. We also need to find a shuttle and bobbins for it - does anyone have a reliable source for these? Fleabay (understandably) seems rife with Singer versions but sparse on other brands.

    Once this machine is cleaned up I think it's going to be a bit of a showpiece.

    I am so glad I found this thread...I posted my New Home on the other thread and have not received any info at all. Ya'll seem to know more about it ...so I am posting my little beauty here. I cannot find a serial number or a model number anywhere on it. It does have 2 medallions with nekkid ladies on it! The cabinet is in really good shape and I found her on San Antonio's Craigslist for $40.00. She is beautiful and clean, no rust anywhere and sews smoothly and quietly!

    That's what I came to check out!

    It looks like an NLB. Needlebar might have more about that as well.

    It's beautiful! My 11 yr old DS would be sitting in front of it, all the day long, just to look at the medallions....lol!

    I went to both sites...And the machine on the Neddlebar site looks just like mine..madallions too. I can;t figure out where they get the serial number. I found two numbers on the Westinghouse motor. 9562773-c and NP45213. Any ideas?

    I have 3 of those machines - I never looked for naked ladies though... I was thinking about donating them to missions... maybe CL would be better...

    My sister surprised me last night with a sewing machine...a New Home ( I don't know much about it yet...except) It has a bobbin and bobbin case and they fit my other machine! She found it for $5 at a thrift store!Name:  new home.jpg

Size:  392.2 KB It's pretty dirty. It's shiny only because I started wiping it down with sewing machine oil to clean it up. I called Janome and they said it was made between 1934 and 1942. Rockford, IL. Model AC.
