    I wouldn't put money into it if the camstack is cracked. You should check that first thing.

    The 237 would be the better machine.

    Chrystal, who made your machine? I have some of those cams, but don't know which machine they fit.

    Myer Deluxe

    Wow! Just found this thread - super cool

    This is my new toy, I ended up back here searching around for other machines like it after Google turned up absolutely nothing. I was really surprised as I have seen a few Myer Deluxe models here over the past couple of years. I didn't think they were that uncommon.

    Anyway, I've never seen one exactly like this before so I thought I'd add mine to the gallery of other 'pretties'...

    It looks like it not only can sew, but tell the weather and play music all at the same time.
    I love the fabric cord BTW. And does that have an unusual case?

    Frudemoo that's a great machine! These early zigzags remind me of cars from 1958 or 59 when the chrome and fins were at their peak and were completely overdone.
    Miriam already posted a picture of the one Japanese fancy stitch machine I own. It's the orange Monkey Wards model she showed us. It's not overly fancy but works well.

    Here is my Fleetwood Deluxe. I have only been able to narrow it down to being made in Japan because of the Japanese script cast into the underside of the body. it is a work horse, and sews brilliantly on fine fabrics as well as heavy canvas.

    I have a couple with that big wide throat plate - one is a Capitol. Nice machine BUT I have a Singer nearly identical and it is a POJ.
