Darren and everyone that liked the collage, you are welcome. I am glad you all liked it.
I picked up another clone yesterday. I found a hand crank clone in a nice bentwood case. My first hand crank. I just started to wipe it down last night and the paint is nice on it. I do have a question. It has an unusual backplate on it made of, what I believe is plastic. It has some lettering on it. Any ideas as to what that is? It also has a plastic bobbin race on the front of the bobbin / hook area too. All of my other clones had metal for both of these parts. I am wondering if this is a later clone.
Here is the before picture.
