    Nancy my wife said it reminded her of the Singer 28 HC I have. I am sure this is a badged machine.

    There is a thread called 'Quilts made using vintage machines!' in this same forum.

    Yes, a lot of us on this board use treadles or hand cranks all the time. Others on here make their projects with vintage machines. As Judy said go to Quilts made using vintage machines! and you will see some of the projects we have done on the treadles/vintage/antique machines. These very old machines have perfect stitches most of the time. We all love rescuing the machines and using them. When I am sewing at home I usually only use treadles to sew. I even have a Singer 319w in treadle that does decorative stitches. This board and our antique/vintage machine addiction is very contagious!

    Can somebody answer me a question or direct me to a Singer 500 service manual source other than the Singer site. I can't get on that tonight for some reason.

    The cam stack has what appears to be a timing mark on the top. But it was covered with gunk and I didn't see it until I cleaned it off.
    It might not be a timing mark at all but I'm getting it back together after a thorough cleaning and this is holding me back.

    Singer 401 repair manual is around page 125 or after

    The world does keep on spinning and I have found out how many wonderful friends I have here at home and all across the country, from my dog rescue days and my vintage sewing machine friends. I will be here a bit more now. As usual, Glenn has found another beautiful hand crank machine. He has the best luck.

    Rosie, can you see a belt in the picture? It sounds to me like it's missing a belt.
