Wink Singer 306W

I found a Singer 306W at a local thift shop today for $19 Just need to replace the cords, belt and order a bobbin case. I'm excited to de-gunk the build up oil

I've been working on a similar machine. Here is a link to mine. http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...c-t162425.html others have helped along the way. The repair manual will be the same manual. I'm sure someone will post a user manual - otherwise the one for the 319 may be of some help - yours doesn't have the keys on the top. Sew-classic will have the parts you need and the special needles that machine needs. If you use regular needles they will tear up the bobbin case or shuttle.

Thanks for the tips, and the link. I didn't notice the fashion disc was broken

The knob unscrews and you can change the disk - you need a set of the disks

That's a really nice looking machine. Don't think I've ever heard of one of these machines and it uses disks, WOW. Bet those must be hard to find. Thanks for the peek.

They use special needles. The disks are flat disks and can be found on ebay
