Not only do we like pictures, we like success stories!! I'm glad you figured it out and were able to get it working properly.

Did you find a a manual for this? Looks like my SewMor 700

I never did. I found someone with the exact same machine, with a manual, on pinterest, but I'm not on pinterest so I asked another sister to contact this person about getting a copy, nothing ever came of it it.

Here's a Sewmor version for sale maybe? If you're on pinterest you could ask the person if they have a manual.

I picked up this machine at a local charity thrift store. I'm not quite sure what "hygiene" has to do with sewing machines, and I profess complete ignorance as to the difference between "electro hygiene" and "non-electro hygiene", maybe they just ran out of badge names.
It does sew, now, and when I step on the gas it wants to vibrate across the workbench.

Maybe get the cabinet from bkay Being in a desk/cabinet would probably help.

Saying good bye to this machine. I bought it at an auction for $7 because I needed a new foot pedal for my own Remington. It came to me as needing a new belt and the case is rough but other than needing a cleaning, it's in pretty good shape. Even has both feet and the bobbin case! All I had to do was pull out the power plug in thing from the one case and put it into the other case and I was done in 5 minutes.

I've been hemming and hawing for about 6 months because I love that two-tone paint and it is a nice machine but I'm going to offer it to my sewing repair guy for free. If he doesn't want it, it goes on Craig's List. Maybe it will be art, maybe it will be restored, maybe it will be a boat anchor but I thought I'd share it first.

So my repair guy has a guy who has a guy... The two-tone Universal will end up being fixed up with a new case and everything needed and sent to Ukraine. He agreed the machine needed mostly cleaning and that his guy would be thrilled over my donation. Heck, even the light worked with what looked like a recent bulb, all parts (except for the foot pedal and power unit...)

When I first got into these Badged machines, I loved them because they are so mechanically sound and easy to work on. I'd pick them up, buy the missing bobbin case or whatever, and donated them to an organization that connected recent immigrants with machines -- many of whom were (in my neighborhood) Ukranian. Is funny how it all comes round in circles.

That is neat, that it will be outfitted and sent to be used. I wish I could find some new cases that don't cost much for some of my machines.
