    Vintage Domestic Sewing Machine questions

    Hi. My DD just inherited a Domestic sewing machine from her grandmother. It's in a cabinet and I couldn't locate a serial number just by looking under the machine or on the bobbin case area. Can anyone tell me where to locate the serial number and if I can get a manual for the machine. It seems to run really well, but I haven't tested it with thread. It needs some cleaning up and some dusting but other than that I think it should be a great machine. Thanks for all your help. Pictures below.

    I found the model number and the serial number on the machine. It's a Domestic Model 801 and I can get a manual for $10.00.

    There is a Yahoo group for vintage White machines. Here is the link for it, in case you are interested:

    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/vintag...guid=236813242

    You can usually get lots of info from the Yahoo groups.

    Thanks for the help.

    I gave her a bath this morning and she cleaned up real nice. I think she needs some oil and after I do that I'll try her out and see how she stitches. Here's a picture of her cleaned up.

    Join that Yahoo group before you buy that manual...you may find a copy of the manual in the files!
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.
