    Delta Rotary/American Beauty/NSMCO

    This is what I found tonight. I was given this machine last Friday and had never heard of it before. Now tonight I was just surfing and found this picture. It is the exact replica of the one I have.
    The name stenciled onto the machine says Delta Rotary. I found it in the section with American Beauty machines, and National Sewing Machine Company is listed nearby.
    Has anyone heard of a Delta Rotary before?

    I had planned on donating this machine to the Sewing Machine Project, and would like to have the instruction manual to go with it. Maybe some attachments, too. I got nothing except the control, which should be a knee lever, but a long cord was added so it can be used with your foot.

    All I'm seeing is a bunch of doubleveil.nets where your picture should be.

    That's strange. My picture looks just fine.
    Oh well! My question still stands.
    Has anyone ever heard of a Delta Royal?
    The page I found it on was: Zorba's Secret Sewing Machine Page. It's the second one down, and that one says "American Beauty" on it. You can hardly read it, but under the picture it says NSMCO "R40" the immediate predecessor to the "Streamliner"
    The next picture down shows the "well worn" painted name badge. At that spot, mine says Delta Royal.

    It's a substitute gif file. If you right-click on it to "save it as", the file name says "stolen".

    Oddly all I saw was the website name repeatedly too. But then I went to the website referenced because coincidentally I had just been on that page. When I came back here the photo showed up just fine. I am just brand new to National machines so know really nothing except I will say the the face plate on this machine looks exactly like the one on the National Eldredge Two Spool I just obtained.

    I checked out the Zorba's Secret Sewing machines - Oh- how I want a collection like that - some really nice looking machines!

    Unfortunately the picture you listed looks the same on that site as it does here -nothing but the web name, so I still have no idea what you've got.

    BTW, the machine refereed to as the "Streamliner" is a National made machine. The first picture on that site is also a National made machine. Most of the rest are "dashboard" Japanses made machines, and some real beauties too!

    I found some more things: a model number: Model RBR and what is probably a serial number: N123682. The finish on this machine is really strange. It's a brown orange-peel finish. Not smooth at all.
    A few other things I found are: Improved Eldredge Rotary and 1930's Art Deco. That ages it a little, but not like ISMACS.
    It has a round bobbin, but the bobbin case is not like the ones I've seen in most other round bobbin machines.
    Maybe someone can get a clue from these things how to find the age.

    I have an American Beauty rotary by National:

    Kind of a neat machine. It arrived completely dead and frozen. After much oil, kerosene, cleaning the Chicago connectors, pleading, and swearing, I got it running.
