Has a table too but it's so beat up I didn't include a picture! I don't know if it works either. I've seen Singer machines, but never this brand. Any idea of a year? THANKS!

    I have an older Montgomery Wards machine that is a 3/4 size machine in a carrying case and it is not quite as old as this one . Mine is electric with a shuttle bobbin . If I remember right I think that the M/W machines were made by the National sewing machine company for M/W . It has been a while since I even looked at my machine . I think that I have the date mine was made somewhere and I will have to look at my machine to be sure of who manufactured it . I will look tomorrow and let you know for sure .

    Do you think this could sew leather?

    Mrj303 : Sorry I have not gotten back to you before now . I have been really busy . I still have not had the time to look at my M/W machine . As to sewing leather with your machine . That would depend on how thick of leather you want to sew . However the above machine was not built to sew leather on a daily bases . It is a machine made for home use . I am sure it would sew thin leather , but not the thicker stuff . I do sew leather on my treadle once in a while . It will do it , but if done every day the machine will give out much faster .
