From what i have researched these machines were sold in hotels as one day only sales. Many people never got manuals. There is no website. You may have to take it in for servicing to a sewing machine repair place.

The Tailor Sewing machine 935FA (and other numbers) was made in Poland and marketed in several countries for use in home economics classes. Well built machines that were not cheap and are usually not 'cheap' now.
I know you did not ask about value but I thought this was an interesting and unusual machine.

Here are a couple of listings presently on eBay - one machine ($45 plus shipping) is reasonable but the other is probably closer to true value ($122 plus $55 shipping).


I believe theirs may be a 'clone' of the Singer 834 but not sure about that.

Your problem may be simple to fix but I also believe you may need to find a machine repair shop. Most of the repair shops will probably have never seen one of these machines but may be able to help you anyway.
Google sewing machine repairs with your zip and make some calls with your question to see if anyone is interested in helping you.

There are some links that may help you with other problems so be sure to check them out. If you check closely you may be able to find someone to contact that may be able to help you as they either have one of these machines or they have had one.

Here is an email address that you may be able find someone who has this machine.


Here is something from YouTube in case you have other problems.

Saved te best advice for last:

The Ismacs web site is the absolute best for all brands of vintage/antique sewing machines. They have working collectors who answer every question presented to them (except questions about value- no answers).
They will even contact people directly if they feel the person needs individual help.
You will never regret signing up for their free forum messages.
They do have a 'paid' membership but you can join their question forum for free.
