It's a nice heavy duty swing-needle. Like Mariam says, you'll need the disks, especially the zig-zag. I believe I have multiples, so, I can send one if you can't find one. It's not my choice for...

Seeing a machine in a movie or such, I toggle rewind until I either recognize it or decide I don't recognize it. It's insanity, but we all here have the affliction.

In my opinion, you're starting with the best machine Singer made. A zig-zag attachment and a blind stitch attachment and away you go. Maybe a button-hole attachment if you are so inclined.

Aren't you impressed with how solid it is? Hope you get it cleaned and adjusted. It is as good as any (201 excepted) Singer when it's in its prime. IMHO!
