Brand spanking new to this site so please allow me to intro myself..... Country non spelling Geek
Hey ya`ll I lifted up this machine and noticed it does say model 742 and the name is centennial but for the life of me I can not find it on the net.,,, I am thinking,,, oh watch out,,,that its like a FORD,,,,then the cent would come into play... is this a singer or what? Sorry dont mean to sound demanding,, if I only knew I would find out how to string it up properly and things of that nature,,, Thank you all for your time in this matter!

This machine looks like the Japanese made Kenmore etc. clones of the Mid 20th century. Very pretty too BTW. Probably look at the Kenmore thread guides here:

Very pretty machine! On my Morse machines (also Japanese made) that knob is to raise and lower the feed dogs. Several of the machines have three different settings..up, down, and middle and one machine (a Brother) you can dial and set it at any position. Very helpful.

Glad it is working well for your wife! The older machines are fun to use.
