Welcome to the Quilting Board!
This is my blue Wizard machine... 15 clone, obviously. I believe these were made in Japan for Montgomery Ward stores to sell, around 1950, although the motor on it is a Champion, made in USA. This is a machine I'd like to sell. Just haven't had time to clean it up really well, tho it seems to sew just fine as is. The motor belt has just recently broken.
Miriam asked me to post pics of my Mercury Electric clone. I believe it was made by Morse as the motor is tagged Morse. The face plate and tension assembly resembles a Singer 15 but the rest of the machine looks like a Brother or White. The feed dogs can be raised or lowered and it has a vertical bobbin assembly. With a 1.2 amp motor this is one work horse of a sewing machine. Besides, she is pretty and shiny too.
Caroline, I like that face plate! Very pretty machine. Don't those sew nice?
NEVER LET A SEWING MACHINE
KNOW YOU ARE IN A HURRY
Love that Mercury! That's one interesting little critter. Quite a variety of design components and that great shine make it a sweetheart.
Let God be your quilt and wrap you in His loving care.
I love them all, like a kid in a candy store, face pressed against my monitor checking out the detail.
My stash keeps me in stitches!
That Mercury is a pretty machine. I like her faceplate and the decals. They are really pretty. Is it a 3/4 size machine?
OK, now I see it. I think I was looking at the first picture and thought the harp space was smaller. With the foot control there, it does look smaller, and then I look at the second one and I can see just how big the harp space is. Is the harp space in the Singer 15 larger than the 66, or is there a difference? Which Singer has the largest harp space, do you know? I'm wondering just in case I want to machine quilt and want the largest space to do it in.
