I say that all the time. Those who have met me can tell you I'm not very hip and I'm not making much effort to be either.

I am not familiar with this machine but it sure is a beauty! It should not take to much to get it up and going especially with all the input you are getting here on which way to go with it.

Welcome. Here's the manual. Damascus Grand was made by National for Montgomery Ward. They use an odd needle system known as Eldredge Rotary.

Default I am restoring .

I am restoring a demascus grand with the round bobbin rotary treaddle like yours. 6 drawer cabinet. It was totally frozen .in my excitement to get started I failed to take a picture of all the workings and have no books. Have been unable to find any specifics on the working of this machine's parts. Could you possible take pictures of it's working bobbin area and under machine? And post them on here?. I would be so appreciative.
