    Hi,
    I just bought an old Montgomery Ward Brunswick VS treadle sewing machine. I only have the manual. I would love to see if I can find the accessories for this machine and parts as well. It has the bobbin shuttle but not the bobbin it self. If any one knows of any web site where I might find accessories and parts PLEASE, PLEASE, let me know!
    Thank you!

    Very nice looking machine and cabinet.
    Does it have the long shank or short shank on feet?

    Yep, sew-classic.com is the stuff! :)

    Can you take a couple of pictures of the foot and where it attaches to the shank? One from the front and one from the end of the machine?

    It looks like there's a knurled ring at the bottom of the shank and the foot would be attached by a flat pair of prongs - is that right?

    If so, I might have a set of attachments for it. I will try to find a bobbin for you so that you can test it to see if it works - if it does, you can order modern repros from Jenny pretty cheap.

    Thanks Noreen, I'm not even sure. I don't know anything about this machine, it looks like it might be a short shank. I haven't been able to find anything on it on the web yet. I'm waiting for a belt that I bought from ebay to get it running. I also need a bobbin which I ordered from ebay, but I don't know if it is the right one. I'll be doing "trial and error" with this for a while, I think.

    Here you go. It is a badged National machine, made for Monkey Wards, which you already knew. Here is a link to the manual.

    OH, That would be so great! I have attached a few pics, I hope I don't overload you. I can't thank you enough for your help!

    This is the "shuttle" that the bobbins go in. I had no idea that bobbins were ever like this one.

    I think the National bobbin should fit in it fine. I think there are actually 2 sizes of bobbins of that style out there. If I find any feet around, I'll let you know. I'll check out the second hand store when I stop in.

    I have some top-clamping feet in two different sizes. Five are 5/8" from the top of the clamp to the underside of the foot:

    And I have a partial set that is 9/16" - it has the binder and hemmers, a narrow hemmer, a quilting foot, quilting guides, a shirring/edgestitcher plate and an underbraider.

    They look great Poly! Do you sell parts? How would I determine which size would work for my machine?
