    Yep, that's a 15 clone. Sew-Classic will have the light for it.

    for sure a clone - once you get that one cleaned up inside and out you will like it. I have one like that - turns nice
    Here is a link with a bit of info for you:

    Get a little LED light from WM - they don't get so hot

    I'm waiting for someone to make LED bulbs for sewing machines. I'd be all over those.

    Yeah - it would be smart wouldn't it - you can find all kinds of little LED lights for not too much. Some can be adjusted to shine where you want them. Some hook on by magnet some clip on.

    Joe,

    Here's a replacement LED bulb on eBay. See item number 110478406689. Fits screw in sockets, not the bayonet style. I don't know anything else about them except that they are costly!

    Some kind of other light will do the job...
