    My blue clone is a winner!

    I mentioned the blue clone I finally got in this thread:
    { Visit with Miriam and Phil }.
    It's badged as a DRESSMAKER with PRECISION DELUXE on the top of the arm.


    When I got it the belt was petrified, it had no light, and the top tension thread check spring was broken.
    I borrowed a cogged belt from another machine, put a spare light on it and borrowed the face plate from the Edison to test it.
    It sewed very good.


    Today my Sew-Classic order came in with a new belt and the replacement check spring.
    I got that all put together and test sewed with it. Tension was perfect according to my wife who has the knack for feeling it, and it sews the largest stitches of any machine we have. It will do 5 stitches per inch. Love it!


    It also came with an owners manual ..... for a treadle machine.


    There is no mention in the entire manual of an electric motor. That's pretty neat.

    This little machine is a keeper.


    Now, what do I name him? This one just strikes me as a him, not her.

    He sounds like a work horse. Bruno or brutus maybe.
    Best of luck, hes an attractive fellow.
    Needs a real masculine name.

    Looks like a Buddy Blue to me...my first thought was little boy blue, but nah, probably a big buddy blue.

    "BLUTO" seems appropriate.

    Many of the clones were made really well and had unique characteristics like yours. BTW...a very handsome machine.

    ​Glad you are happy with your machine. I know how long you longed for a blue one.

    From the look of the base of the machine it could be treadled. See how the belt would fall past the base? Sweet looking machine. I like Bluto!
