    I was wondering if anyone has ever heard of a MOOSE sewing machine. I came across one the other day but am not sure how well known they are and if they are a good machine. The price on it didnt seem to bad but like I said I know nothing about then and am wondering if anyone else has. The only thing is there is now manual or anything with it so I am a bit leary about purchasing it. But any info from anyone if they know of anything would be great.
    thanks

    I wonder if it isn't a Morse sewing machine?

    I agree that is it probably a Morse and they are good machines or at least the older ones are. Not sure if they are still manufactured or not?

    I have bought machines that did not work without mannuals and DH was able to fix it and figure it out. It looks pretty good. Can you try it out? Let us know if you get this little beauty.

    Morse maybe? I got the giggles thinking of a moose in my yard as a sewing machine.

    It could be Moore? It's bad penmanship what ever the name. LOL

    I think it is a Morse. If you look carefully, on the bottom right of the third letter, you can see the 'tail' of the 'r' and the stick of the 'r' on the left. They are very short, but they are there.
