    Japanese machine Morse model 1550A ec

    I asked for help indentifying this freebee machine before and was told to send a picture in. No luck posting a picture but in my internet search I found one exactly like mine on e-bay. All the pictures are the same. I have since cleaned it up, put new needle and bobbin in it and it now sews a beautiful stitch, both straight and zig-zag.
    While working on it, I noticed that it had the same bobbin case as my new basic Janome machine. It doesn't have any feet with it and am going to check to see if the feet with the Janome can fit.
    There is a place for cams at the top, but no cams with it. It is a very basic machine, but seems very sturdy and hums along smoothly. Anyone have any more information to add??
    Enjoy your life, it's the only one you have!

    if you would go to your post from yesterday and confirm that the photo that I posted is indeed the machine that you have then maybe once we know for sure what we are talking about someone may have some information to add.
    There are so many machines and so many variations on machines that a visual is almost a necessity except for the well known machines.

    I just aquired a Japanese machine made by Toyota but it also goes under the name Morse, Arrow Automatic and Visi-o-matic - all basically the same but with variations. The Japanese machines of that era are all good sturdy hard working machines but they carry many badges.

    if the feet fit-great!

    as for cams...if you go to the thread showing pics of my new machine it shows the 14 cams that came with mine, I have no idea if there are others out there that will fit it

    there is also a vintage japanese sewing machine forum on yahoo that you could join and ask for information on your machine.
