    Pretty machine. :-D
    it looks like the motor is a 220 volt., if so then you need a voltage converter if you live in USA or Canada.
    Or just swap the motor out for one set up for 110v. Very simple to do and save the motor thats on it someone may need it in the UK.

    You also need to change out the light bulb too.

    I'm having trouble finding info on the 4 machines that followed me home today. Here is what I have:

    Dearing - 2963793

    New Home Double Duty - Model 532 Serial #15962

    White Rotary 77MG Serial #13455

    Kenmore Model - 1764180 Serial #91076877

    What I would like to find out is where I can get manuals for all but the White and what years they were made.

    I'll check in tomorrow when I get a chance. Will have to use my cell phone. We are heading to MN for the "Back to the '50's" car show. Have to get up at 5. You all have a great evening.

    I was really happy to get it. Been wanting one, now I finally have one. One problem, we will be going out of town tomorrow morning and not coming back until Monday or Tuesday. I want to play with my new machines. Waaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh!!! There, now I guess I'll stop crying. Anyone have a crying towel I can use?

    Okay due to the horrific pressure I have received :lol: I am going to show the machine that I picked up at the Thrift Store yesterday.

    This is the "Filigree" decal pattern.

    Crossstitcher,

    I bought a 301 from Ebay also! Mine is the shortbed. It just came in the mail today. I have hurt my back and can't play with it yet. :cry: It was my first sewing machine purchase from Ebay. I was nervous but it arrived in excellent condition. It only took 2 days to get here!

    Is that three 301 this week? I recieved mine today and after a little cleaning and oiling she is running like a dream. I even got the manual so I read through that and got the idea to try some free motion quilitng. I keep hearing how they are great for it. Well, did not work out so well. According to the manual, you just take the foot off, lower the fees dogs, adjust the stitch length and go for it. It does not say anythig about the thread tension. So I tried it and nope, nothing. I could with several tries pull up the bobbin thread, but after that, no stitches at all. not long one or short ones, nothing. I guess I need to get a free motion foot. But I have no idea. It stitches beutifully otherwise. Any ideas?
