Welcome Jo. That is a Class (or model) 24 machine which is a chain stitch machine. There were many different Class 24 machines made for domestic and industrial use per https://ismacs.net/singer_sewing_mac...sses-1-99.html and http://needlebar.org/main/singer24/index.html and https://www.singersewinginfo.co.uk/24

I don't know where the serial number is on that type of machine, but you can look up the number to find when it was made at https://ismacs.net/singer_sewing_mac...-database.html

From what I have read, the hand wheel moves in a clockwise direction to make it sew. That is mentioned for a different class 24 machine at https://www.quiltingboard.com/vintag...n-t246001.html (posts #6 & #7).

A manual can be found at https://www.singer.com/support (https://res.cloudinary.com/singer-se...ng_Machine.pdf) There are also manuals at https://www.sil.si.edu/DigitalCollec...0201/index.htm or https://www.sil.si.edu/DigitalCollec...0201/index.htm You can click on the thumbnails to bring up the full page.

It looks like you will need a thread stand as the part above the hand wheel with holes in it, is probably a thread guide before going to the "manual tension."

This model of sewing machine uses what is known as a 24x1 needle.

Thank you so much for all the information. The serial number is on the back N361968, from your link it July 19, 1900. I found a you tube video showing how to thread the machine. The thread stand is on the ground in the back. I attached a pic. I just love this little machine. Again that you for taking the time.

You are welcome. I'm glad I could help.

Where did you find the serial number (for future information)?

Also would you mind posting the link of the video that you used for threading?

I found the serial number behind the machine on the neck where it connects to the base. Someone sent this link to me for threading. This machine is exactly like the one I have. https://youtu.be/tRZEoTq4epo
