    It is a Japanese clone of a Singer model 15. It is a little workhorse. You can get a free manual on line. Search for Generic HA-1 15 class sewing machine.

    Thanks caroline! Do you know if its a machine i would want to use or keep as a collecters item for value? It is in compleate working order. I am absoultly in love with it and can't wait to use it, but it i don't want to risk breaking it if it is of high value.

    no reason not to use it! it is a little work horse that will stitch a beautiful even seam- and as long as you maintain it will last for more generations. down load the manual & print off the pages you need- mainly how to clean & oil it- take good care of it & use it.

    It's not likely to be a collector's item, but it probably IS a fabulous sewing machine!

    If it were mine, I would give it the spa treatment, replace the foot control and cords with a modern electronic set (about $25) and put that beautiful gal to work! She's likely to be a wonderful free-motion quilting machine and very lovely to work with. Have fun!

    Thanks thepolyparrot! I am definitely going to take your advice and give it the spa treatment! She's a beauty and i don't want anything to happen to her!

    mine looks just like yours except it says "sew-master". does beautiful FMQ!! parts are fairly easy to get and there are tutorials on fixing him (or her) yourself. have not been able to find a reliable mechanic near Gretna Va. but with all the turorials and help here you don't really need to pay someone else to do what ever it needs. or figure out what it needs done.
    don't stop!just keep trying and something usable will turn out!!
