Default Found a beautiful machine!

I saw this beauty in FB Marketplace for $100 and just had to have her. She has “Made in Japan” on her and needs some work. She also has “Idle Hour” and her serial number. I’ve been looking on line and can’t seem to find out much information on her.

Does anyone know where, or to whom, I can go to get more info and perhaps find a manual? Thank you!

I couldn’t figure out how to pot the pics of her! She looks like a Featherweight with a scrolled faceplate, and she’s the prettiest color of blue! The motor looks to have been replaced and has “Brother” on it.

Welcome aboard. Brother is a good name. Look up a Singer 15 on line and see if she looks like that. Pics need to be 640x ??? pixels to be posted here..Shrinking them may be your answer there. Can't wait to see it.

Here's a thread on Idle Hour machines. I didn't read thru the whole thing but you might find some help there.
