    I acquired the White Rotary sewing machine about 12 years ago and 1.) wanted to date the machine and was 2.) searching for an operations manual for it and 3.) was it originally a treadle machine. . It was stored in the damp attic of an old home that was built in the 1930s in Montgomery, Alabama, USA . Being interested in sewing and antiques I was thrilled to be offered the machine. It needed a lot of cleaning and oiling, but after that it runs great and sews beautifully . It appears that it was a treadle at one time (just by looking at the wheel) and a motor was added later,as well as the cabinet. It does have a rotary bobbin. Can you help me answer these questions? Thank you so much.

      You have your work cut out for you but what fun! I have scoured the internet as well only to find out that FR means Family Rotary After HOURS of researching I found this article with a guy with the same problem . He called the White Company..now Husqvarna/Viking/White company gave the serial number and they dated the machine duh!! How simple is that??!! 1 800 446 2333 I'm calling Monday! When you find the year Ebay has instruction books This should save A LOT of frustration for both of us! Keep us updated!!
