Default Bega machine

Hi everyone,
I've just acquired an old machine in a table. How do I find out how old it is and a trustworthy repair shop here in Georgia?

Welcome to Quilting Board. I cannot help with repair shops. Most of us find we are able to get many of these vintage and antique machines back into service by ourselves or with help from others here.

It is quite possible that the age of your machine will be hard to determine, unless you got paperwork with it. It is quite possible that your sewing machine may have been made in Japan or possibly a rebuilt machine. It appears that there was a trademark from 1946 and renewed in1968 by "Bega Sewing Machine Corp." Have you seen Bega Sewing Machine (J 52663) A picture would help.

We like pictures. In order to post pictures on Quilting Board, you will probably need to reduce or compress the picture to a file size that is smaller than 2MB. How to post images can be found at https://www.quiltingboard.com/attach...020-01-17-.pdf
Don't forget to scroll over to the far right to find and click on the "Upload" button.

I have found that only the big red "Reply" button or "Quote" work to give me the paper clip icon to work for adding pictures.

Some additional info regarding reducing images at post #4 and images for the scroll and upload button can be found at #5 of quilt block ID?

Another way to post pictures can be found at 2021/2022, 2.5 Birthday Swap

Or simply - Make sure pictures are smaller than 2MB
Click on red "Reply" button
Click on the paper clip icon
Click browse - choose picture/s. (only 5 allowed per post)
Once they show up as being loaded, Scroll over to the right side and click on "Upload"
After the pictures show up as being attached, you can close that window and go back to the screen to finish posting your post.
