    I meant to include the original post and photo...

    I'd like to see a more detailed photo of the pheasants on the 1903 model 27.

    Thanks,

It is in a nice cabinet and the cabinet was full of trim, zippers, attachments and thread. Works fine. But we currently have 5 treadles, including a 1861 Wilcox and Gibbs Treadle, 2 301s, 7 Featherweights, 2 201's, 2 Singer Salesmen (miniature cast iron hand cranks 1880s) machines, a few 99's, a couple of 66s, 2 128's, a few model 15's (including one with a coffin lid) a Dressmaker, Janome, 1970 Singer, Kenmore, and a Brothers. We are considering moving out and letting the machines take over. LOL.

    Here is my Kenmore 148.210. The fit and finish are excellent, top of the line, I'm speaking about the initial build, not its current condition. The dark color is a deep metal fleck paint. The almond color is high quality enamel, almost looks like porcelain. It is in generally very good condition, but she has a couple of scars on her head where I suspect some one dropped something on her.

    From what I can tell she was sold from 1963-1966. Continuously variable, stitch length and zig-zag width. Push-button foot pressure. She'll drop her dogs. Has the light switch on the bed. No-brainer bobbin loader. Push-button reverse-tacking. Metal knobs, with relatively large (but tastefully recessed) screws to hold them on. All metal innards (technical term for internal components) and a 1.2 Amp motor. Very heavy clean casting and a lot of nice machine work. Built in Japan by Soryu. Haven't been able to find much about Soryu.

    What I did find out is that the US and Allies helped Japan develop several industries after WWII, and sewing machine manufacturing was one of them. After WWI, the victors left Germany in ruins, and it is widely accepted that the dire conditions left the people ripe for the rise of a leader that would come to start WWII. We didn't want that to happen again, so we jump started Japans post war economy by handing them critical technology related to the manufacture of sewing machines. By the mid 1960's they were the big-dog country-of-origin for sewing machines.

    Here is my first White.

    A late 1940's Model 77, this is the heavy steel cast unit, not the lightweight 77MG mag. alloy cast.

    The art deco lines, green color and crinkle finish really speak to me. I love to look at her and she sews great too. I love the sound and feel of turning on the light using the heavy toggle switch just under her arm. The wheel plating is still very nice and feels great in your hand. Independent settings for forward and backward stitch length, and a great little gearshift to throw it in forward or reverse. She has a forward facing bobbin, and a large cover plate that flips up for access. (My fingers are fat, so I still tip her back to change the bobbin.) The bobbin winder makes a nice solid sound when it finishes winding. I really like the knee control in her cabinet, its easier for me to control than a foot pedal. Plus to me, she looks great from every angle.

    Her weakness? Well,.. she's a friction drive, so you can forget about going treadling with her. The 65 watt 110v (.7 amp?) friction drive motor works great, just no practical way to treadle. And her dials look very nice but,... they're plastic. I know, you can't tell by looking but the tension, forward, and reverse dials are all plastic. I still think she is a straight-stitch goddess.

    A great post war example of a USA machine from Cleveland Ohio.

    My second Singer. My first Singer was a 328.

    A 1923 Model 66 Redeye.

    I had her out in the garden for a little photo shoot. Got a couple without her motor.

    Recently cleaned and oiled White VS (model 2 I think) circa 1915. I also repainted the iron.
    I believe the treadle and cabinet to be the original that came with the machine, but I haven't figured out how to verify that.

    It works great. Like badda'.
