    My Sewmor is up and running

    Finally decided to get her up and running last night. She is currently sitting in an empty Kenmore cabinet that my DD found for me at a garage sale. The cabinet hinges were broken so I am using some big gutter nails to support her in the cabinet until I find something that will work better.

    I have named her Shirley Sewmor. I posted pics when I bought her and Billy said it was a 15 clone. But I have been unable to find the make or model of machine she was cloned from. Her badge says Sewmor 606 made in Japan. I don't think she is a Singer clone because of her molded metal faceplate and the topline of the machine. Is it possible she is a Brother or Necchi clone? I sure would like to know so I can find a manual for her. She sew so smooth and quietly AFTER I figured out the threading pattern and the stitch regulator. Notice the back plate? It shines like a mirror and you can see the reflection of my camera taking the picture. BTW, I paid $18.00 for her at Goodwill and the cabinet cost my DD $5.00.

    Actually Sandra I have not cleaned her up. All I did was to give her a drink of oil and some grease in the motor. I was going to polish her with some auto polish but could not find any in DH's side of the garage, which is a cluttered mess (drives me nuts!!!).

    what a great looking machine - she does have a profile similar to a Necchi, doesn't seem to take after any Singers that I know of.

    Really nice machine! Does Shirley sew as good as she looks?

    Oh yes she does. I put her through her paces today trying to figure out the stitch length regulator. She even did 4 layers of denim but finally balked at 6 layers of a seam when the needle broke. I think she would have kept going but I was using a regular needle and the presser bar could not raise high enough for the layers.

    Great looking machine!! It's always amazing to see the layers these machines can sew through.

    This file looks more like my "SewMor" but if yours is the same model number then maybe this will work for yours, also:

    My Sewmor is turquoise but I also love the look of the black machines, too.

Size:  1.21 MBYour Sewmor looks like my Admiral which looks like my Necchi. It seems my Admiral was made by Brother and has nothing to do with Necchi.
