The decals though say it was made in Edmonton Alberta, its a Comrie Sewing Machine CC The number on the plate by the post is S115908. The motor is Good Housekeeper by Eureka model E20 and the foot pedal is made in Toronto. I have been searching online non-stop and can't find anything about it.
    Hope you can help!







    Kallie beautiful machine, but I'd like to see the whole machine! Go back a few posts and Miriam posted a link to the generic 15 clone, or Japanese 15 as it is sometimes called manual. You won't be able to find much out about any of the 15 clones as there are really no records on them. Most of the 15 clones and 99 clones were made in Japan after WW2. It is interesting that your machine may have been made in Canada! I'd like to see a whole side photo of the machine.

    Hi Nancy
    Sorry I didn't post one! I was so involved with taking pictures of the little details I can't believe I forgot a whole side shot!
    But here they are below. I am really excited to find out if it was made mostly in Canada. I know the motor is made in the states, but everything else seems to have been made right here in Canada. I have sent some pictures to a lady at my LQS as well who collects vintage machines and know almost everything there is about them. She apparently has about 80 vintage machines.








    here is the link to all the pics I have taken and posted to flicker

    I like her details. I haven't seen that nose plate or those decals yet

    Thanks Miriam! She is even more stunning in person! Just need to find somewhere to get that motor cord looked at!

    Kallie,

    What is the problem with the motor cord?

    That is a really nice machine. Definitely a 15 copy.

    Hi Joe
    There is a bit of electrical tape just at the base of the motor on the cord. Not sure if I should plug it in or not. Kinda scared about frying it as it has been many, many years since it has been plugged in.

    Here is the picture of the tape around the cord to show better.

    Kallie, I've run into that quite often. I usually take the tape off and see why it's there. If it's just a patch then I'll retape it. If it's a splice I usually rewire the motor. Joe

    Joe you have certainly learned a lot in the 3 months you've been into sewing machines.

    Yes I have. It's also been a reinforcement of other mechanical and electrical knowledge I already had.
