    Default Another SEWMOR to my collection, a blue 202

    For several months SteveH and I have been discussing my acquiring the blue SEWMOR 202 he had for my collection. Well things finally jelled and it arrived about a week ago.

    This 202 is a bit different than my other 202 as well as being blue. It has no decals anywhere. And in place of the decal usually found on the arm there is an actual name plate.

    ( I thought I had a better pic than this )

    So far the only things I've had to replace was the two felts for the spool pins. Everything else is there except the light. I'll check with my LSMG then go to Sew-Classic if he doesn't have one.

    The machine sews beautifully. Nice straight stitches and consistent stitch length settings.

    On the bottom of the bed is the stamping J- C2 and there is also a small decal with J- A27 on it. According to the J- chart at Yahoo this indicates it was manufactured by Toyota.

    This machine has one thing in the bobbin hook area that I have not seen before. It's a red plastic wedge like piece between the hook drive and outer ring.

    The little steel tab that holds it in place is stamped:
    PATENTED
    JAPAN 434193
    U.S.A. 2842081

    Perhaps a vibration dampener?

    At any rate my SEWMOR collection is growing slowly but surely.

    One of these days I'll have to dust them all off and take some good pics for a family portrait.

    You have already learned more about this machine in a week or two than I did in the months I had it. SO glad it went to the right home

    Miriam,
    Keeping lint out is good.

    Steve,
    I like delving into the machines I get. More fun that way. I just wish there was a good way to date the Japanese clones. That would add a bit more depth to the information.

    Joe, I think you better stick with taking your wife out on dates... She might get jealous of those Japanese clones.

    I think that sort of thing whenever I see someone trying to date a machine. I always think saying something nice or some flowers or candy might help.

    Congrats on the new Sewmor Joe. That one's a beauty. Very nice shade of blue.

    I've wondered about how to ID the machines with no markings by using the "lipstick" on them. Things like the shapes of knobs, the guarantee plate where the Singer logo would be or the patterns on the faceplates. Your Sewmor feed dog knob looks very similar to the one on my Rodney machine.
    I figure even with all the importer's brands out there some of them have to repeat. I don't see the manufacturers retooling for every little thing.

    Off topic: Joe how is your Japanese clone project coming and is there anything I can work on for you?

    Rodney,

    Do you mean my 15 Clones from A to Z project? Or I have mentioned a different one?
