    Might be interesting to note which models are good FMQ-ers and which ones aren't.

    Maybe that should be a different thread? Maybe show a pic of the machine and a sample of work?

    Oh my I can't leave off a Singer 15 - this one has seen better days - it's identity was the front badge - the machine's paint is in terrible shape and the bottom has no markings.
    Since it didn't come up in window #8, I will re-post Name:  clones and their under side stamps 066.JPG

    That old Singer does free motion - see that screw that adjusts the feed dogs? It also needs a really good clean up.

    Here is a clone with no badged name. I'm thinking the decalss are just like a Universal clone with no markings on the under side. Name:  clones and their under side stamps 048.JPG

    it is no wonder they are called clones. They look so much like the Singer on the under side. The difference seems to be the bobbin shuttle style and what ever markings

    Your unbadged clone has the same decals as my Edison.

    If you look close at the "Edison" decal you can see the edges of it. It was not put on at the same time as the other ones. More like after the fact. The Edison decal is not the same quality as the others either.
