    Thanks for the replies. I was wondering when it was made and what it was. Thank y'all so much. It must of been bought at th e Charles Williams, store because the little badge says Charles William store. It also used to say Richmond on the front, I suspect that was also put on by the store.

    The only difference I can find in my machine is that the bobbin winder is lower.

    I think it was a Necchi 535 or something like that, so maybe the 70s?

    If it is badged does that mean it was manufactured for a store for them to put there name on?

    Got the bobbin winder fixed. Didn't attach the spring In the little hole.

    Thanks to skip I threaded the machine and got the tension right. Did a little test sew BG turning the hand wheel and it is so much smoother than my modern machine. Can't wait for the belt to come Wednesday so I can do some serious sewing.

    bpeace4u, It is sure fun sewing with those old ladies.

    I cleaned up a Universal today. (15 clone) I got it thinking Aha parts machine. Yeah it looked that bad. No slide plate and the bobbin case was rusted pretty good. I started by oiling the innards. It turned so nice... so I took EVERYTHING off, cleaned Tammi style with a dump bucket full of Oxyclean and soap. That mix did not take the tar off though. I used rubbing alcohol someone on here mentioned - I figured there was nothing to lose. The whole back end of that machine was covered in tar - I wondered at first if it was some kind of a textured finish on it. It did clean up and looks pretty darn good. It is probably the quietest machine I've had in a very long time. The tension was gooey with dried up oil so I re-did it last thing. Then I test sewed and it sews perfectly! I need to check the motor and wiring yet. I had a bobbin case but I need to find a slide plate. Clones are so forgiving. Then on the way home this evening my car got rear ended. We are ok but ache.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    Miriam,

    I'm gonna try the rubbing alcohol on the 15-91 I have. It also has that tarry stuff on it.

    Glad you are OK. Were you in your little red car? Perhaps you should buy a big Buick Roadmaster. More substance to it. Just kidding, pain hurts, oh how I know that.

    Joe
