    I have aquired my mother-in-law's Montgomery Ward sewing machine I think from the 40's C74 NS 4896 A is the SN. Does anyone know where I can find info on this machine? I would like to find a copy of a manual. the threading is inside the face cover and can't be seen when the door is closed.

    I think I know what you have - I bet it is just like the one someone threw through our patio door to break in the house. I may have a manual somewhere... somewhere.............

    Yes, some Elna's had Necchi foot controllers on them. Necchi and Elna had a thing going for a while...

    I have you know I just spent half the day organizing... no end to that... now I can't find anything... my sister is here so we played with a couple 301s, a FW and a couple Singer 99s and a Singer 185 after that. She just shakes her head and snickers at my nonexistant organizational skills... She says mom needs to show up and figure out all the little parts... Mom came over yesterday and watched us work on a couple machines. She said if she was younger she would be right in there messing with machines. I haven't seen the MW manual in a while but I'm thinking there might also be a set of accessories with it if I can find it all. Oh and I have two machines like that on the shelf for parts - something important like the bobbin cover plate is badly bent up but good on each of those machines. Oh and I have a perfectly good table for a MW machine of that vintage and I DO know where it is.

    Need help with my find for today

    Have never owned a Singer but as of today I do!!!! Now I need help to identify it and you all know I am fairly new at this. There was a $30.00 price on it. I offered $20.00 and he said yes. After getting it home and plugging it it (it purr's) was going to put thread on it but to my surprise the peg that holds the thread is not there. Any solutions? Also there is no book with it so need to find some reading material. In the picture of the backside there is a large hole. What is suppose to be there? The number on it is AL119834. Seems like I had another question but now I can't remember what it was.

    After leaving that yard sale and a few later I found a buttonhole attachment for a Singer for $1.00. May not work but what the heck. If anyone can help me out here I would be so very happy and Thanks!!

    Crewsemj,
    You have a Singer 15-91. If the buttonholer is correct for the box its in, it will work with this machine.
    I use a cone thread stand when I have a machine without a spool pin. Here's a link to a manual for a 15-88/89 it'll work just fine.
