so i picked up this beautiful old sewing machine at salvation army yesterday. and i was wondering if any one knows anything about it because it didn't come with directions. I an not a great seamstress, i mainly have been using my moms "old" but not this old machine, so i have a lot of questions as to the functions of it. Ive been searching on line and found how to thread it, but thats about it. it works pretty well, the Balance wheel doesn't turn very well I'm guessing it needs oil? my significant other said he would try and figure that part out later on today. Here is a picture of her
Here are my questions This little knob pops up, is it the reverse button? it not what is it?
does this knob change the tension? or size of stitches?
Next many levers and knobs, the top one on the left seems to change where the needle is? maybe its not supposed to do that?
if any one has any other usefull things i should know definitely tell me
Thank you all so much in advanced
