    I just came across this machine and bought it. It needs help.
    Has anyone ever heard of this brand?

    Sounds like a Japanese Clone model.

    The Zeniths I've seen are all clones of the Singer 15-91, metallic blue and very pretty. :)

    Some people think the Japanese-made machines are actually better than the Singers they were copied from. I don't have any, so I can't say, but I wouldn't hesitate to buy one if it is, indeed one of the clones I've seen. :)

    Guessing it's an offshoot of Zenith TV's.

    I've read and heard the Singer clones made in Japan had very stringent specs in their production, perhaps to attest to the fact that they could produce machines worthy of the US market.

    I finally got the machine to work, used a manual for the Singer 15-90 and my husbands arm. He got the dohickey that makes the needle go up and down to move. AND the rest is history!! Now I need a needle and a new belt, maybe some machine grease for the areas that use grease. I would post a picture but do not know how.

    Hello! This is my machine for the last 5 decades and still function well. The brand is Eastern Zenith sewing machine. No serial number or where its made. Is this a japanese clone?Name:  zenith frontal view.jpg

Size:  27.6 KBI have to admit that this machine is way much silent and smooth than any of my other singer 15 model. It has a very nice brass decal.
