    This is the Singer sewing machine that I got from my Dads mother, when she passed. Along with those 32 quilt tops. The belt needs to be replaced, but I have never tried to use it.

    Don't wait too long to try it, you will love it when you do and wonder why you waited so long for.

    Pattie, she is an AD000746 and I would love to find a manual for her. She is in the cabinet that she came in. My Granddaddy bought grandma an electric machine before 1986 and I have it and use it all the time. She used the electric until grandpa past away then she put it up and went back to MS Singer. :lol:
