Default White 603 Needle

I have a White 603 that needs some TLC. It appears to be a zig-zag machine that homes to the left for straight stitching but this picture in the manual leads me to believe it can be set to center position. It doesn’t state how in the manual… anyone have the secret?

Welcome. The needle needs to go down in the center of the straight stitch foot. The picture does not show how it fits over the feed dogs. Do you have a straight stitch foot and the straight stitch plate? It looks like a low shank foot. There is a narrow and wide foot for straight stitching on a left needle position machine. The narrow one will probably leave the right side of the feed dogs exposed so that the fabric may not feed properly

Probably the reason you could not post pictures is because they are too large. My usual response -
We like pictures. In order to post pictures on Quilting Board, you will probably need to reduce or compress the picture to a file size that is smaller than 2MB. How to post images can be found at https://www.quiltingboard.com/attach...020-01-17-.pdf
Don't forget to scroll over to the far right to find and click on the "Upload" button.

I have found that only the big red "Reply" button or "Quote" work to give me the paper clip icon to work for adding pictures.

Some additional info regarding reducing images at post #4 and images for the scroll and upload button can be found at #5 of quilt block ID?

Another way to post pictures can be found at 2021/2022, 2.5” Birthday Swap

Or simply - Make sure pictures are smaller than 2MB
Click on red "Reply" button
Click on the paper clip icon
Click browse - choose picture/s. (only 5 allowed per post)
Once they show up as being loaded, Scroll over to the right side and click on "Upload"
After the pictures show up as being attached, you can close that window and go back to the screen to finish posting your post.

ETA - if you search for "Left Needle Dedicated Japanese Vintage Sewing Machines" with the quotation marks there is a thread on another forum about some of the differences and pictures of some of the feet.
