Question Touch & Sew-II Singer

I just received a FREE Touch & SewII Singer (special zig-zag sewing machine) the book says copyright 1975. Does anyone else have one of these and should I take the time to clean it up and use it? It has all the attachments with it and I'm searching for the manual now. Any info would be helpful. I'm looking to use it for straight seams for quilting projects but if I get it up and running and it is a "keeper" may use it for other things. Thanks for your help - I've learned a lot from you since I found this site back in November 2011!

That was the machine I got from my DH the year we got married! At the time, it was a fantastic machine, but I never even got close to using all the cams/bells and whistles it came with. When I moved back here from Vanuatu a couple years ago, I ended up getting rid of it-couldn't use it there (220 elect) so it just sat in the closet for 20 years. The casing yellowed with the heat and humidity and I just tossed it with all the attachments. I MIGHT have the manual, though, which was in a box I THINK I brought back. I will check. I had the button holer attachment and a big box of "stuff" that went with it, but I don't know if I brought that back. I will check and get back to you.

I still have one and it works beautifully. I get it serviced about once a year. Works great. It was made when Singers were Singers.
