I have a sewing machine that is a Modern Home Precision sewing machine, model 74. I am looking for a manual. Any suggestions?
I would look on Craigs List, Offer Up, Let it Go I have had great luck finding what I am looking for.
I believe the Modern Home is a clone name used by companies that build (or built) a lot of Precision Deluxe machines. Many of these machines were sold under different names - such as Sears, Singer, etc.

Your Modern Home sewing machine is what is called a 'clone' and most were made in Japan and modeled after a Singer machine.
Clones can be found wth numerous names, numerous styles but you will most likely need a model number to find what you need - either in a manual or parts or help with your machine.
You can look at some of these models to see what I mean about numerous names and either identical machines or close models. I'm not sure how long these links will be good.

I inherited this machine from my grandmother and I'm trying to find a manual. Any help would be appreciated.
The name Modern Home is what is called a 'Clone' so it's possible you will never find a manual with that name. You can most likely use the Singer 15 as this is the machine it was modeled after.
What is a 'clone' machine?
"The term "clone" as used here refers to the Japanese, and sometimes Chinese and Indian made copies of the Singer Model 15 machines. After WWII Singer's patents on the model 15 had expired and when our government relaxed tariff laws so our former enemies could rebuild there economies at our expense, the Japanese used the Singer 15 as a pattern and went on to embellish it. Many of them were made in colors whereas Singer only made the original style of 15s in black. Other minor changes such as the bed mounted knob to lower the feed dogs were incorporated.
Some machines are not exact duplicates of the Singer 15 but share enough characteristics to be considered clones.
They Japanese made them by the millions for anybody and everybody."
I have some links listed below that explains about 'clones'.
Here is link to a list of cloned machines -
You can join some of the singer forums and someone will give you a link to a manual for your machine.
This site is absolutely the best site around.
Here are a couple others if you're interested.
I recently bought a Deluxe Precision sewing machine, model 25, and I'm having a hard time finding any info on it. I'm really interested in an owner's manual.
A lot of these machines were fashioned after (clones) the Singer #15 but not sure about yours.
I purchased this today. It says Precision sewing machine super deluxe model 033, made in Japan and says "home electric" on the arm. I would like to find the manual to see what needs repaired other than a frayed electrical cord :)
This type machine was built in Japan but sold under many, many names - such as Singer, Westinghouse, etc. It appears most of them are basically the same style so any one of the manuals may help you.
Does anyone know where I can find a manual for my Howe machine? There is no model number on the machine. But it also says Deluxe Precision, made in Japan.
Where can I find the users manual for the Premier DeLuxe 105 sewing machine made in Japan? I have no idea how to adjust the stitch length or how to change from zigzag to straight stitch.
I was wondering if anybody could tell me where I can find any information about the Precision Deluxe 30 modern sewing machine? I just received one and it is beautiful. I am excited to learn more about it.

I did some googling & found some info for you. Many of the links posted on the topic I'm posting don't work, but you can find something useful here:
google precision deluxe sewing machine
I found several pages of stuff. It looks like it could be a great find if you quilt. Machines that only straight stitch do it very very well because the "insides" don't have to move & adjust to make other stitches. I can't think of an example...maybe it's like scissors: very long bladed dressmakers shears cut very well in long straight lines. But if you try to do precision cutting, for example for the craft called "paper cuts", you will not be able to do it as well as with the tiny 1/2" blade that is used. And vice versa, the tiny scissors would do a terrible job making long straight cuts for a dress or skirt project.
Give this site a try www.retrevo.com you may be able to find out about your machine there.
I found the following website: sewvacdoctor.com/
You can send an email and ask if there is an owner's manual for your sewing machine.
Is "Precision" the name of the maker of the machine? If it is just a description of the model, what is the name of the maker? Some makers are Singer, Bernina, Kenmore, Brother, Janome, etc. If this is the case, you may be able to find out more about your machine by going to the maker's site and looking up your model.
I know that this isn't an answer, but I still wanted to thank the person who has this site. I couldn't find ANY information on this machine all I wanted was a manual thank you for that and the pic's they help. I have this machine but mine is older maybe one of the first few years of production. Just minor changes really but the same. I wish I could get a repair manual but that's for another day. Thank you again this means a lot to me I want to use this machine not put it on display.
