    Just found this Japanese 15 clone today... at a garage sale on the way home from the gym! It's a Wizard, a green one! If anyone knows anything about it, please spill... On the underside of the body it's got "JC25" embossed in the metal, and then nearby there is a hand-painted number "JA14" and then stamped into the metal it says "013296". Three number notations. What does it all mean?

    It moves great. I ran it for a few seconds and got the faint odor of burning, so I won't try that again until I've cleaned it well and re-oiled and packed the grease ports with vaseline. It had an old tape stuck on it as a fabric guide, which left a nasty sticky residue when I removed it. What is the best way to get that off-- sewing machine oil?

    This is Alba, named after the first owner:

    My latest purchase - 66-1, Oct 1909, D1351513, Lotus decals. Currently has a modern motor on it and in a modern case, but I am going to re-treadle it soon. I don't have possession of it yet, so this is pic from the website where I bought it. I'll put up more when it's cleaned up.

    I just bought her today at a yard sale. According to Singer's website, she is a Class 127, born December 8, 1925 in Elizabeth, NJ. She's not in the best shape right now, but will clean her up when I get the right materials.

    Here are pictures of my Little Vesta which I hope you all like. The doll gives some idea of the scale. If you are interested you can see the machine on Youtube - the title is "How to thread a Little Vesta". Over the past month or so my husband and I have put three videos onto Youtube. I am on a mission to show people how to use old machines. The other two videos show the Singer hand machine that I learnt to sew on. Apart from ten traumatic minutes in a needlework class at school in 1967 or 8, I have never used an electric machine, and it's far too late to start now!

    The wooden base of the machine is just over 16 inches wide, the doll is 20 inches tall

    Those are some great machines! Yippee on the 66-1 Lotus find! I adore mine. I'd rather piece a quilt on that treadle then sew on anything else I have. It's so soothingly precise in all it's movements and sounds.
