But in my message board searching, I got the impression that the sewing machines made under the label “Wizard” were sold to Brother, a company that still makes sewing machines today.(Too bad Brother doesn’t provide good online records about their vintage machines like Singer and some other brands do!Well, just call me “Sherlock” because I think I’ve managed to piece together some really useful details in my search for information about my recently acquired vintage Wizard brand sewing machine!So if you have a Wizard yourself or you’re just generally curious (like I am) about the history of old things and how things work, I’ve decided today’s post will share with you what I’ve learned, in hopes that others searching the web for the same information will not have to search quite as hard as I did.I was able to select about 3 by sight from the collage of photos that looked similar to the one on my machine.
Eventually, I somehow coaxed the internet to give me the link to a website that sells old sewing machine manuals in both hard copy and instant download file form.
My next step in learning about my Wizard machine was a serious hunt for a new needle plate with measurement marks.
Part numbers and copyright dates seem to be impossible to find in old manuals, which are only about how to use a machine.
(And if you have any further information to add about Wizard sewing machines, please leave a comment!
) You’ve met him before – this is my Wizard, Gandalf the Green: He is an “Automatic Zigzag” sewing machine in teal & cream with shiny chrome accents, model number 3KC 8842 made in Japan (probably in the late ’50s or early ’60s). I managed to find the lady I believe owned Gandalf before me because my sewing machine came with an old maintenance receipt.There have been countless times that I have gone on casual internet searches about one topic, and then ended up following random link trails to learn all kinds of seemingly useless trivia (and yes, I do retain a lot of it – it’s just how my inquisitive mind works).Sometimes, my husband and I will waste hours randomly searching together and learning about new things.I don’t know if anyone else has this tendency, but I have a habit of being generally curious and needing to know about random things.
