Default Anyone recognize this brute?

Just "won" it on goodwill.com.
Be a while before it arrives but thought I'd look for a manual while I'm twiddling my thumbs.
Cheers

Welcome.

It is a 328 aka 328k aka Style-O-Matic

Several threads here on Quilting Board. Put "328k" in the search box in the upper right corner.

https://www.singer.com/support probably has a manual but just put 328 in the search box.

It looks like the first Singer I ever bought & that was in 1964. My DD has it right now. I need to ask her to pull it out of the closet & find out what model it is. It's been so long since I've seen it that I don't even remember exactly what it looks like but I do remember it having the cams. The case on mine was a hard plastic.

Got it brand new 1965. Served me well until recently.

Thanks for the replies!

I'm looking forward to cleaning it and getting her up and running.

Apparently you can use 2 needles - very cool.

Yes, I remember using 2 needles on mine at times. It was & probably still is a real power horse. All metal...none of the plastic that they use today.

Nice! Don't know where you live but here in Austin is a Singer store, and they service these old Singers. Surely you could find one as well in your area.
