    Haha...my first thought was that it reminded me of the clock radio that I got as a wedding present back in the early 70's. I love the retro look of the vintage machines. Congratulations on owning this beauty. Do you have any other vintage machines?

    Okay here I am!! :D

    That is a really nice machine, and I think I know what cams it will take for you. Could you take a photo of the cover lifted for me so I can be sure of the type?

    And I am going to say that it is a mid 50's model judging from the overall design of the machine.

    Oh yeah I forgot look under the machine and tell me if it has a JA or JC number on it and around the edge of the bed it will have one of those on it also. If I have those numbers I can tell you who made the machine more than likely.

    Well its a badged White which were made by Jaguar for that era.

    I am going to see if I can find the cams for it, but it needs a cam in it to make the needle to be centered or right hand dedicated.

    I knew that one was going to come up, I am going to have to run out to the studio to look at the manual I have for a White but it has something to do with the zig zag I think. I sold a White not long ago that had the same button on it and I figured it out while I was servicing it, but I cant remember what it did now.

    I had a 60's White that I would trade a lot to have back. Wore it out. And I get descouraged everytime I go to the sewing room. Wish it was still sitting on the workbench.
