    Sewing Machine Model Numbers

    I was just wondering how much difference there is in close numbered models of sewing machines. For example, I have a Montgomery Ward model #UHT J1277 and there is a manual on ebay for a model #UHT J1276. Would this manual be beneficial to me. I also have a Kenmore 158-1755 and a Kenmore 158-17560. Again would one manual work for these two machines.

    Blackberry,

    I can't say about MW manuals, but I do know there is enough differences between the Kenmore 158-17550 and 17560s that you should get a dedicated manual. The two I had were different enough you'd not be able to make them work right with each others manuals.

    I love the old iron and wood machines. They're solid and reliable.

    I "think" the difference on the MW models may be one uses separate cams and the other does not. My daughter's machine is a #UHT J1276 and it doesn't use cams, just a built-in camstack for about 8 different stitches.

    My MW is a #UHT J1277 and it also uses a built-in camstack with about 8 different stitches. I was wondering if the MW manual for the 1276 would work for the 1277 since they both have built in cam stitches with the selector in the top of the machine. From the pictures of these machines I can't tell any difference.
