Welcome to the Quilting Board!
http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-ELNA...item3f147fa978Not a lot of time left on this cute little grasshopper. There are a several more further down, but one Supermatic has serious water damage. Also several puzzle boxes and buttonholers, including a Necchi buttonholer.I'm headed for the living room to talk to the Universal some more. It has to be a setting I'm missing to get it to straight stitch.

You go, girl! You will never regret doing this for them.
I "inherited" a 4 year old son with my marriage. Encouraging and nourishing the relationship between him and his father and the kid's mother was one of the hardest things I have ever done. It pays off big time. He is the "apple of my eye" 36+ years later and I love him as much as I love the son I gave birth to.

Got the pm and responded. I screwed up my own email. Go figure. ......
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/vintag...sewingmachines has a manual for a univeral and a generic zz machine. May help you. Also take the top off of the machine and oil it well, checking to see if everything appears to move and adjust as you move the dials and knobs. Something may be frozen up. Hope this helps.
Melinda, I've had the top and faceplate off. Everything moves very nicely and is spiffy clean. I'm thinking it's a position thing with the levers and knobs. I know my Elna has her own little sequence to SS. Neither machine has a SS icon, which would help. I am a member of that site, but for some reason can't open any 'member only' items, but thank you for the link.
I always like to check the CLs posts in Frederick, MD since some very pretty machines get posted there every so often, less more than often.
Here is a pretty Minnesota: http://frederick.craigslist.org/atq/2883303729.html
