    A friend gave me this sewing machine. Only part of the sticker remains and all I can read is "idle". On the plaque it says "precision deluxe". any ideas what this is?

    I'm not sure, I haven't plugged it in yet. She also gave me an old singer in a cabinet, I need to research that one too.

    Lucky Girl!!! Send Billy a PM. I know he'll get back to you. He's very busy answering questions on the Vintage Sewing Machine page usually.

    Here I am and the Singer is a model 15 that I know. The other machine is a badged Japanese 15 with in my opinion is better made than the Singer. (sorry Singer) I will have to look at it some more to figure out the maker but it is a really nice machine!!

    Really??? I'm surprised. My DH said it probably wasn't worth the haul... (of course he knows NOTHING about sewing machines, tee hee) Thanks Billy!!!!

    Isn't it nice to belong to a board that has an expert in everything?
