Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Chris, the clones are confusing. If I hadn't sewn on a 1950s White in the 1950s, I might not see that pretty one as a White. I have a Admiral made in Japan that has to be a Necchi clone. Funny thing is, it has a better motor than my Necchi, but side by side, they are very similar.
WOOHOO! The spousal unit finally rewired my 99 for me, and she sews beautifully! It's the only machine I had a plate for to use the picot hemstitcher, and now he's playing with it trying to get the hemstitcher to work properly.
NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.Success is not final. Failure is not fatal.
It is the courage to continue that counts. Winston Churchill
After breaking an entire package of needles trying to get the hemstitcher to work, we gave up for today.
Name...hmmmmm....I suppose it IS time to actually name her with a name that will stick...will have to think about it. She's a fast little hummer...quiet...nice stitches...no reverse (1924 model)....
Through Christ who strengthens me, I can do all things. - Paul
I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I committed unto Him against that Day. - Paul

I'm sure he's waiting to hear from more of you. I hope this helps!
