Please read these important instructions

which were written to aid you in placing your

new sewing machine on its portable base.

First, remove the nail which holds the foot

control inside the base to avoid damage in

shipping. If a small plastic clamp is fastened
to the back and not to the top of the parti­

tion at one end of the base, remove it, too.

After unpacking the sewing machine unit,

being certain to take out the instruction book,

guarantee and accessory box, lay the unit

face down on a table. You will see two

clamping screws A entering head hinge holes
B on the underside of the back.

On the base you will find two head hinges

C which will fit into holes B. Lower the

base onto the sewing machine fitting hinges
C into holes B. Tighten screws A securely

with a screw drivef.

With machine in sewing position attach

plastic clamp D to top of partition with

screw provided so that it may be turned ac­
ross the bed of the machine, to hold it down.

(On some bases the clamp may be positioned

in the proper spot).

To make the electrical connection draw

the two wires through the slot in the partition

of the base. Plug the cord labeled "Motor"
into the receptacle marked "Motor" on the

block attached to the outer section of the

base. Then insert the other cord into the

"Light" receptacle.

Place the foot control on the floor, insert

plug into a wall outlet (110-115 volts) and
you are ready to sew. But first read the in­

struction book to become familiar with the
threading of the machine, tension adjustments
and all the other features designed to make

sewing a pleasure.
