Great question - that no one seems to have an answer for.

Thank you for posting pictures. Excellent job on restoring this machine. I know what a labor of love it can be.

I'm going to go out on a limb, as I cannot find anything to back-up my theory. To me, it looks like it may be a "National" machine. It looks a lot like http://needlebar.org/nbwiki/index.ph...2natvelox1.jpg The difference would be that the stitch length assembly is on the pillar rather than on the bed. I was thinking that the "Brunswick" was similar and thought I had a manual for it, but couldn't find it. Another machine similar, but electric, would be a Regal Paveway. A manual for it can be found at http://needlebar.org/main/manuals/re...ay/1index.html

I'm not sure, but I think that a lot of this type of "National" machines would take what is called a 20x1 needle. They can be found, (<link) but not as easily nor in the type & sizes as the 15x1 needles that most domestic machine use. However, I have heard many will use a 15x1 but need to not push it all the way up. I don't remember the distance and someone put a sheet magnet the correct size so that they could easily use 15x1 needles.

Hope this helps, somewhat.
