I came across a 3/4 size black machine this morning at a local junk store. Asking price is $15 in a cabinet. The cabinet is ok, nothing special. The machine looks good, very much like a FW. It's called a Precision Duchess and says Japan on it, but the motor says make in the USA by Universal Motor. Serial # on it is ID31624 under the bed. It goes in reverse, but I don't think it zz'ags.
The kicker is the wiring is all torn up. I'm thinking its a FW clone and not worth more than the asking price. All the decals are good as well as the bk finish. comments??
