    Aqua Bel Air Style 414

    I just found this machine tucked away in my Mom's house. I looked online, and could find nothing about it. I love it for the color and the deep throat of 8 inches. If anyone can help me with info or where to go, would sure appreciate any and all info. Thanks for looking.

    One neat thing I noticed is that the rod, for a better word, holding the spool on top of the machine, tips up and down.

    I do not know if this machine even runs, because I just brought it in and it is really cold. I may just take it to my machine repair man, and let him check it over. I sure hope that he can get it running. I only have one foot for it, but it appears to be about a 1/8 inch foot, so if it runs, it would be great when I need to do a SCANT 1/4 inch seam.

    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    Pretty machine! The spool pin lays down for storage so that it doesn't poke a hole in the cover.
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    Well, only the top half of the picture loaded, but I can tell you this. It's a Japanese made machine very similar to several I have here.

    Plug it in and I'll bet it will run. Most likely will need cleaned and oiled, but that ain't hard.

    Lovely old badged Japanese machine - did you look underneath and see if it has a stamp - it might be Toyota or possible a Brother. Clean it, oil it and it should be good to go!
