    This is a Model 15 clone, one of the nicest and most reliable of the vintage machines. It won't sell for much, and I think $60 is on the high side (Be sure bobbin case is there!). It should piece, line quilt with walking foot and fmq very well. It needs to be oiled every 8 hours of sewing; see the manual for oiling points. Use sewing machine oil or, preferably, Tri Flow oil ONLY, no 3-in-1, no WD40. Use Singer lubricant or Tri Flow lubricant for greasing the gears. Brush the lint out of the bobbin area every time you change the bobbin and it should do very well for you. I think you'll love it.

    I have a new one I need to add soon. Mine is a Kingston. Very nice machine.

    Thank you! I have been doing a few small projects just to get the feel for my new found love and everytime i use her it seems to get easier and more natural feeling

    What a beauty and how lucky you are to find a new home for her for $15.

    How did you come across the machine in the first place?

    Your picture looks so much like the machine I learned to sew on. Even the cabinet is almost the same! Wonderful machine that will give you many hours of enjoyment.
