    My daughet has one almost identical but the brand on it is Griest.She has had it for about 10 or 12 yrs now she is only 25 and does very little sewing.She just like it and bought it her self.It purrs like a kitten.

    Great Find! You know, the more I see of these older machines, the more I'm happy to own a few. All of my vintage machines, including the two treadles are operable and sew very well. I enjoy using them. Makes me wonder why I spent so much money for a modern machine......However, saying that, my main machine also does embroidery and that was the motivation for purchasing it. But for everyday sewing and quilting....give me a Singer 301, featherweight, or my 115 treadle, or my White VS treadle, or.......sad isn't it, this collection addiction:)

    This is the home version of my first machine. I had the industrial model. They are true work-horses. Enjoy!

    Oh gosh...my Mom had a White for years, and made many outfits for a family of 8 on it. I learned to sew on a White. For a reliable stable machine you can't beat it.

    I think Janome machines are made by the White Co. but I could be wrong.

    The Japanese 15's to me are the best machines to own. I have a Universal 15 and it is my all time favorite machine out of 20something that I use in my studio. I put mine in a treadle and love it or you can get one of my handcrank kits (painted to match of course) and use it as a Hand crank!
