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.
Find me at Victorian sweatshop discussion group
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)....
I meant to behave......but there were too many other options
I'm sure he's waiting to hear from more of you. I hope this helps!
