    1st project we did together was rescue from our basement an old oak couch hubby & I had for 27 years. She & our son are artists & chose bright colors. I think she is hooked - and she loves the color of this machine!

    Question for Billy - when you have time, can you please check year for me - model 532, serial # 39493, J-A 30? Thanks.
    Anyone know where I can get attachments?
    it looks like about any short shank attachments should fit your machine - you can get them on line places like www.sewclassic.com has short shank, slant, or high shank. Yours is short shank. Those old New Home machines from the 60s are pretty nice.

    My NEW HOME was my first treadle. It sews an awesome stitch. I had a hard time learning to treadle but one I got the hang of it, it is wonderful!!!

    i found the bobbins but i can not find needles for this machine. i looked in a "needle book" and compared the one needle i got out with a pair of pliers. one came clost but it did not have a flat back, can i use a round needle? i order some from e-bay but the eye and the tip of the needle does not match up. i will have to send them back. where do i look now?

    Charq,

    Check inside your owners manual. Usually, not always, there is a date code. This would look something 521 for May of 1921. Or they might actually have a date in them. If it does it's generally close to the vintage of the machine.

    Hmmm, I'm wondering how I missed this thread.

    Anywho here is my two New Homes:

    This is my New Home Greyhound Model 30:


    She is a tiny little machine made from aluminum rather than cast iron. She's about the same size as a Featherweight but lives in a bent wood case.


    This is my New Home Model AB:

    This is the one we got down south that was filled with mouse leavings. She was a mess. Now she sews very nice stitches. The paint and case still need refinished, but she's up and running.

    It was a sign from the Almighty, me reading these posts today. Went to a St. Vincent De Paul store today and what did my wandering eyes spy, a NEW HOME. Beautiful machine, don't even think it has ever been used, there is no scratches or use marks on the bobbin, bobbin plate, foot peddle, everything looks brand new. Will have to post numbers later, only had one cam with it though but that is ok. If I could post pics, I would. Might try that too later. So excited though, want to get down there, oil it up, don't need cleaning, not a speck of lint on it or in it.
    My stash keeps me in stitches!

    Charq,

    The date code on that manual is the 4-37. Or April of 1937. By the looks of that machine I'd say that was a real close match.

    Thank you so much! You made my day! Now I can go clean her up. I can't wait to use her. The women I bought this from had a Franklin that needed new wiring she wanted $15 for it. I'm seriously thinking of getting that one too!

    It was locked up when I got it. It's working now, but it will never sew unless I find a bobbin and bobbin case. Any suggestions?

    quiltingweb,

    Yes I have some suggestions:

    > Your LSMG
    > Post clear pic of the bobbin housing for those who might have some extras
    > Thayer Rags parts { http://thayerrags.com/ }
    > It more than likely takes a White style of bobbin case and bobbin.

    It is just like the White bobbin and case...but just a bit smaller. I tried. And I know my timing is going to have to be reset, once I have a bobbin and case. I had to remove one of the bars that runs across the bottom of the machine. It was stuck and had to be PBlasted before it would move. Now it's moving really well, but I won't know how well until I can actually sew with it.Name:  New Home bobbin area.jpg

    I wonder, if looking at this picture, I can get it lined up again, using the photo for reference. I took this before I took it apart and cleaned it.

    Called my local sewing machine repair guy and I'm going to go visit him next week. He thought, if I brought along my sewing machine, he might be able to find something in his stash

    I hope this loads - it looks a lot like a Singer Japanese 15 clone but I don't think it is exactly a clone - I think it is one well made machine. Looks like they didn't all load...
