So for the sum of $25.00 it got to come home with me to it's new home...I love rescuing old machines! lol!
Anyways as luck would have it,,,and a whole lot of research... I found out that the National Sewing Machine company manufactured machines under it's own name as well as for Sears and Montgomery Wards..... This machine is a " EXP.B.T. Long Shuttle". As best as I can figure it was manufactured somewhere around 1935-41
I love the cool MW logo on the machine.....
This machine uses a 'shuttle' instead of a round bobbin. I have a Singer that is also a Shuttle type machine.
I will need to change out the cords as they are brittle,,,,,but look forward to playing with it.
Now to try and do some more research and see what I can find out about this little machine's history.
I took measurements and it is the same size as a Singer Featherweight 221 machine and about the same weight. It measures approximately 12" x 8" .
I was under the assumption that only Singer made a "Featherweight" type machine.....so now to hit the internet and do some research......
