    Forgive me if this is wrong. I believe the Elgin was made by the Elgin company that eventualy became Universal and finally closed out in the 1950s. They were based in IL. They used to guarentee a job for life to their employees.
    Again it's been a long time since I researched that.

    I can't seem to find much of anything about it. Wish I knew how old it was. I have a box of extra attachments that were with it and it has two extra bobbin cover plates with the attachment right on it. Of course I can't find out emough about it to get a manual for it. I feel lucky that the attachments were with it. :thumbup:
