New sewing machine!

My other half brought me home a surprize....He found a fully functional Euro-Pro 1730 48 stitch sewing machine! The only thing missing from it is a bobbin casing (and the additional feet, but whos counting). I just have to get a new bobbin casing for it and its ready to go! Its practically brand new and its' got its carrying case with it.

I tested it with the bobbin case from my kenmore and it works just fine....i just have to tinker with the tension. It could also probably do with an oiling but im sure i can figure that out.

So....does anyone know of how i can get a new bobbin casing and how much it may cost?

Hi I had needed a part for an older machine and I googled it and I was able to find the part and able to buy the manual that went with it. So it might be a good idea to see if you can slso get the book. Lots of luck.

the machine itself is fairly new, and my old 1970s bobbin case worked with it....im just kinda wondering where i could get a standard bobbin case....shouldnt be that hard to find
