Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I want to know the model number too- just in case I run across one
I'm a Queen.... at least my pantyhose say I am!
(proud caretaker of a magenta 221, purple 222, assorted 66's, a 301, a pink Atlas and Monarch, and Granny's 201-2.
If I were in Rockford, that machine and cabinet would be in my house by now!
DH told me if he was in a 100 miles of that machine it would have a new home with us.
Quilting with a friend keeps me in stitches.
I have 2 vintage machines, one I am looking for a manual for, also a service manual if possible.
Its a Wilson Rotary number on the plate is 107x1303 I can not for the life of me find anything about them. I was told it was a White badge for a store. :P But don't know if its true.
And hello everyone, I just signed up yesterday and have been reading through this thread.

The footplate and the bobbin winder is the White design.
I hope this helps.
Hello everyone. I have met a very nice guy in my area who wants to re-home a Singer 237, a Viking 21, a White with nice decals - electric, with a case - early treadle type, and in Iowa he has an Elna Supermatic, price is really cheap! PM me if you are interested and I will give you the information. I just bought my second Pfaff 360 from him!
Thanks Grant, it helped alot
Found the manual for the Domestic and it just about matches mine.. only difference was the reverse and forward mechanism. So I downloaded it and will see what else I can find.. As far as dating it, I don't know how with the numbers I have.. But will continue digging around..
BTW, the pic posted is the before pic and I have a few more so no worries about the dust.. The cabinet came with it, we found them both hiding in a back storage area of our local junk shop. It had been sitting back there about 3 years. We got it for $10.00. And all the veneer on it was peeling off and had a mess load of damage to it, so my b/f took to his shop and has got it nearly all sanded off. I wanted to keep as much of it on there as I could but he just went to town on it.. Will post some pics of it when it is done.
