    Here is a video, by Treadle Lady, showing how to fill a long bobbin:

    She also has a video showing how to load the bobbin into the machine. Her video's are wonderful and her little booklet is worth buying. It was only $8 when I bought it and it was loaded with information.

    I don't have a machine like this, but the cabinet is beautiful!

    I have an identical machine: Singer Style-mate 348. It was made in the 60s (I think around '67). The cabinet you have is beautiful, but i don't know if it's the original. Mine is different from yours and every 348 I've seen has a cabinet like mine. I purchased my machine second-hand for $50 too! I am hoping to find a compatible 1/4" foot for piecing; I'm a newbie at quilting and bought this machine prior to quilting.

    I noticed that it said Made in Great Britain - which may mean that it won't run in US unless you buy a converter.

    I would pay $50 for the cabinet. It looks like a solid wood beauty! Even if the machine is junk, the cabinet would fit another one.
