    on Baltimore CL http://baltimore.craigslist.org/atq/3515129537.html

    I think this is a cool 15 clone!

    That is one cool, blue machine. Look at that shiny chrome! It is not a 15 clone though. Rather looks Brother to me. I bet the medallion says precision on it.

    whoops. For a 15 clone, the tensioner should be on the end. I just looked at the stitch dial, which was dumb of me.

    I would have been excited also. Actually it is a good thing that machine is clear across the country from me. For the price, I would have made room for that one. It looks as if it would clean up very nicely.

    I found a Rogers machine once and tried to find the manufactorer. There is no such manfacturer I found out. A gentleman who retired from singer told me that they would put any name you wanted on a machine if you would order a pallette of them. He told me who he thought the manufacturer was. I bought 4 or 5 machine at Goodwill that day for 10.00 each. The rogers turned out to be the best machine.

    I bet it is a good machine. Check out other Japanese machines: Vintage Japanese 'Badged' Zig Zag and Straight Sew Sewing Machines
    There are a lot of badged machines - we also have some good info on the 15 clones: Will the REAL 15 clone please stand up And sometimes you can identify the Japanese machines from the bottom of the machine: The dark underside I'm sure there are places you can google to find a whole lot more information
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    I have never even seen a machine like her. She's a real beauty-love the throat on her.
