You may have a badged machine, which means there may be many other machines like yours but with different names on it. Perhaps if you start a new thread and post a picture of your machine. Photos need to be reduced in size to be able to post on QB.

What kind of information are you looking for? If it is a Japanese machine with zig zag capabilities you may want to look through this link https://www.quiltingboard.com/vintag...s-t207880.html

For older parts Helen Howes - (if this is too commercial/advertisement, let me know)
Helen Howes is moving but she is still wonderful at finding items for older machines, particularly British and European. I just ordered a front slide and a hand wheel for my Jones treadle as well as needles.

Hi i recently found this machine is a demolition job, and it looked too good to throw away, so i rescued it.
Can anyone shed any light on what brand of who made it. I ahve no idea what to do with it or if it is of any value to anyone. I'm in Perth Australia.
Thanks in advance img_9639.jpgimg_9645.jpgimg_9648.jpg

I am very interested in a Kenmore Model 158.1914. I wondered if anyone owned one and what their opinion is of this machine. I have a Singer 301 that I love and I am using it to piece a quilt. I love the way it stitches but I would like a mechanical machine that is reliable and does zigzag and used cams for different patterns. I'd love to have some advice.

According to https://www.quiltingboard.com/vintag...s-t306610.html that machine is a left-homing machine with super high shank feet.

Thanks Janey for the posts about the 1914. I wanted it mainly for the cams that allow for different designs. I use my Singer 301 for piecing. I will look into another machine as I wouldn't be able to line up the designs properly with a left leaning needle. I am looking for a reliable mechanical sewing machine. I have over $21,000 tied up in 3 electronic sewing machines and not one of them is working. I can still buy parts and accessories for my 301 but Janome only carries parts for 20 years and then you're out of luck.
