Ok, I just got in contact with my brother to find out about the 3rd sewing machine my late aunt owned. It is a Domestic Rotary sewing machine.

Would this machine be considered an antique? Should I switch/trade this for the Janome?

The owner of the Janome dealership states the Janome 539 I have from my aunt was the bottom of the barrel back in 1975. Well, I understand that but it sews pretty good to me. I thought it was a pretty solid sewing machine even if it was cheap back then. He wants me to bring in the Singer and Janome to have a look if it's worth servicing them.

Don't trade the Janome for it. There is a good picture on this eBay listing for the manual:

Thanks Karen. I think the model she has is 151 or 161. My brother is not sure. I think this may be the manual here Domestic Rotary 151

But the Janome that was the bottom of the barrel in 1975 is probably a better quality machine than some that are being produced today. If you like that Janome, keep it!

You know, that's what I was thinking also. She really runs well.
