OK,so Singer does NOT have the manual for this machine. I don't think I need many parts and I can find them with that parts list. However, there are some buttons on the throat plate I have no idea what they are for. They seem to engage into parts on the drive shaft underside of machine to stop different mechanisims. I am assuming they might be for setting timing or some other mechanical repairs. They are not the "oiler" spots for the old oil tin can... anyone know?

This is not a Singer 111W, it is a Consew 226R, but they are almost identical machines. Are these the buttons you're referring to? If so, the one on the left is to change stitch length, and the one on the right is to re-engage the safety clutch on the main shaft under the bed. The safety clutch disengages when you jam the machine. It prevents further damage to smaller more sensitive parts.

BTW, the manual for the 111W152, 153, 154, and 155 will work for the 151, there are only minor differences between all of them.

Thanks! I did note the one on the right locked a cog looking thing on the shaft underneath the bed. I will take up reading the manual in front of the machine this weekend. I appreciate your help!
