    I think these are very fun to look at. I hope you enjoy and I hope you post yours on here, too. Any information is always fun and helpful.

    OK, Here are some of my SS/ZZ Japanese badged machines:

    Dial 'n Sew:

    This is our first official rescue. My wife found it on the curb, the case all busted to pieces. I fixed that, put in a bobbin case, threaded it up and it sewed. It's a dedicated left needle straight stitch and I have an off set straight stitch foot for it.
    It's marked J-A 18 and the chart from the Yahoo Japanese machine group says that is Riccar.

    Kenmore, Model 158-13570

    This is one of the best general use SS/ZZ machines we have. We have more attachments for it alone than just about any other machine.
    It's made by Maruzen/Jaguar.

    Domestic, Model 5135

    (Sorry about the lousy pic) The need rag has been removed and the machine has cleaned up right nice.

    Aldens, Magic Zig Zag

    I have a full compliment of accessories, and feet as well as the owners manual with this one.
    It's marked SANSHIN on the underside of the bed. No J-A numbers anywhere.

    American Home, Deluxe Electric

    This machine came with only a piping foot on it. It's a SS only machine.

    Now come on QB members, dig your pics out and post 'em. We don't want Miriam to feel lonely do we?

    This machine is one my boss owns - it is only straight stitch - very nice machine and willing to sew anything - he loves to sew costumes for plays.
