Look for two hinges. On the opposite side of the box there is a small (usually round) that you will turn to unlock it. Once it is unlocked you will pull upwards to tilt it. While you are pulling the side with the hinges will need to be held down. Sometimes the box is tight so just pulling upwards doesn't always work.

Is a sewing machine vintage at 20 years or at 40 years old


That is probably a personal definition. To me, a vintage machine would be one that is more mechanical than computerized. .Some (below) seem to think it would be a heavy metal mechanical machine. But, to throw a monkey wrench into the discussion, what differentiates vintage from antique?

Value on a vintage 1950s gimbeles sewing machine


Vintage sewing machines, like many antique items, are very subjective in value, depending largely on the cosmetic and working condition, the accessories, where it is located, etc. Search the internet for recent sales of similar machines. Ultimately, it boils down to how much a buyer is willing to pay.

Just bought the machine...a vintage metal portable one . cant seem to get the needle to move. turns on and wants to run but no movement


Most likely the machine has seized due to lack of regular cleaning and oiling. Take it to a sewing repair shop for a maintenance check. (Avoid running the machine while the motor is unable to move the parts properly. It could damage the motor.)

Where can I get a manual for an unidentified sewing machine?


If it is unidentified, unless it is a weird bird, it is most likely a vintage mechanical machine, either (A) Generic copy/clone of a Singer model. If so, then view Singer models to see which looks most like yours, then search for that manual, most vintage Singers have free manuals on line (from Singer, ISMCS, or other collector's web site, or for sale), or (B) Non-clone precision Japanese post-war sewing machine. These are basic machines, and many vintage singer manuals will suffice to be able to operate them. Start by viewing manuals the most probable suspects:
1. Singer 15 (15-Class is the most common clone, and has the bobbin underneath, using a Bobbin Case. The bobbin has a series of holes around both sides.
2. Singer 66 (66-Class is also copied, and has a drop-in bobbin,
not need to load a bobbin case. If the machine is small, you may want to view manuals for the Singer 99-13, a 3/4 scale of the model 66.
3. If these two do not help, then just start looking for images of machines that look like yours, and review their manuals. You will soon be able to figure out how to thread and sew on most sewing machines.
