Welcome to the Quilting Board!
One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.
I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!
Found the serial number on the new FW after several DUH!! moments. The allotment date is Jan 23, 1950, and she was made earlyish in the run of 40,000. Dh did well except that the needle doesn't move up and down but I know she needs cleaning and the bed hasd some scratches. She is a long bed so I'm excited overr that. What I'm not excited about is remembering where I put the cleaning stuff cuz I had 3 spaces where I just put stuff that fit there without any sort of plan. MIL still had pleanty of things to grouse about so didn't ruin all of her fun.
Am hoping I can find the 99 face plate and see if it fits the FW. The 99's plate is prettier than than the FW's.
I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

I am not afraid to tackle this machine myself, I just want to make sure I have the correct needle for this machine before I start tearing it apart! It is a little confusing as ISMACS says to use the 16x1 and other places say to use the same needle that the Singer 20 - the 24x1 - uses! I was hoping someone on here would know for sure what needle actually is suppose to be used with this little Damascus. I think I saw some of them at the last TOGA Cathy had? I just hoped you knew! It would be so much easier if I knew I had the right needle in before I start messing with the mechanics of this machine!
I will wait until I can ask Cathy, I bet she at least knows what needle is correct!
