The Japanese had just as much to do with the designing of, or engineering of if you will, of the mechanics of sewing machines as anyone else from the 50s on. They took the 15 class system and ran with it. As far as I'm concerned, by the late 50s Japanese machines were being better designed and built than any Singer machine and they only continued to get better. If that weren't true, Janome and Brother wouldn't be where they are today.

I agree!! If it weren't for an amazing cache I found, my Japanese machines would by far be the bulk of my collection.

Besides the Singer 15 class machines referred to as clones, the only other ones I am aware of are the clones, made in Germany, of the Singer 12.

I have an Aden's that appears to be a 66 clone.

Somewhere I have a clone of a Singer 128 badged Remington. The ones I've seen have a lever for stitch length or maybe reverse, I don't remember what it does but it has been there on the ones that were cloned.

Looks more like a 201 to me.

Just the stitch length. Under the hood it is a 66. I could only wish it was a 201. This machine needed a fair amount of tech work since some things were never set up right. It is from occupied Japan.

I forgot about the copies of the Willcox and Gibbs. The Eldredge was a straight copy, as was The New Home.
There were at least 30 Willcox & Gibbs clones around the world.
