It says Reliable Sewing Stores on the front, has gold emblem (like Singers) on the front that say Los Angeles across the top, Made in Japan on the bottom, and DELUXE 1952 in the middle. Underneath is stamped YNT in large letters. If anyone can direct us to find something out about it, it would be greatly appreciated. Many Thanks
    Can you post a picture of the machine? It sounds like a Japanese clone, but would have to see a picture. Unless it is something extremely rare, which I doubt since it was made in Japan, it is not worth a lot of money. But, the machine is probably a great machine to sew on!

    My DH and I went away for a couple of days and my eletronics engineer son fiddled with it and when I got back, he had it sewing a fine seam!! Am so pleased! There is a picture of it on this vintage thread on pg. 1034 if anyone is interested. Found the relics website and am pretty sure that I have found a manual for this machine. Will send for it when I finish the Antique riding clothes relining job. Want to do a doll quilt on it!
    Will now try to locate a coffin cover for it. Thanks to everyone who gave me tips on where to search.
    Congratulations to your son for getting the New Home treadling! And, wow you are re-lining antique riding clothes? Are you a member of a renaissance riding club?

    Wouldn't it be cute to put a bunch of those in a little display shadow box for the sewing room!

    What year is the Rocketeer and what year is your FW?
    Nancy

    I see you answered that - the Rocketeer is 1951!

    I thought the Rocketeer is the 500A. I don't have a Rocketeer.
    The 401A is sufficient for my style of sewing. I have a feeling this gal will be sitting on bookcase more than being put to work. I will have to make one quilt that is pieced with the FW and the binding is finished off with the 401.
    Yes, of course you are right Monica! The name Rocketeer usually refers to the 500 series! But, your 401A is so close, that it is just like a Rocketeer! I can't wait to see what you do with the FW and the 401A!

    Oh, I want to see your beautiful quilts too! I know you are very busy with just the horses, but you also find time to quilt!
    I almost finished one yesterday - it is just a lap size so small. I will put the binding on today with Betty, the Davis Vertical Feed, if I get a chance between keeping our almost 3 year old grandson and the horses I have to work today! I will post a picture when I get done.

    I have a second quilt I am making for the almost 3 year old's birthday! It is a simple row quilt - he was with me in the fabric store and wanted Grammama to get some Dinosaur Train fabric, his favorite TV show, so I got stuck making this one! His birthday is in 3 weeks and the quilt has to fit a double bed - not his crib!

    She's pretty! I hope she sews well for you. I enjoy using my viking - it is not quite as vintage as yours.

    I tried to post the link, but I must be doing something wrong. Search for 'viking sewing machines pre 1980'. It is a yahoo group. I found a manual for mine there. There is also information on reliable sources for parts, and people who will do a good job servicing the machines if you don't care to do it.

    This is my new treadle, that belonged to my great- grandmother. I would like to know how to date it. Also, I need to replace the carraige that the bobbin shuttle fits into. Any ideas on where to get the part for it? Anyone have extra parts for The Free No.5? I am going to call a local repairman. The machine was in Illinois, I brought it with me to Georgia. my serial # is C78415

    My FREE no. 5
