    I found this awesome machine, who would ever think they would have made a machine like this. It doesn't have a wooden base, so my dh is going to make a base for it. And don't you know I am going to dress the base up a bit?
    Have any of you heard or seen this machine before? I know its 1955

    Just PM Billy and cut and paste a link to this thread.

    This is a total gem of a machine....I think it's just exquisite.

    I love this machine and had never seen one until yesterday. I was in Cabbage Rose in Fort Worth and they have one on display.

    I do not have one but they are the neatest little machine to have. You can take the sides off and expose the inner skeleton of the machine.

    Yours is a really nice example and I would love to have one if I could find one. They were made in Japan if I remember right and were shipped abroad. And if I remember right they were made from aluminum. Like I said you do not see these everyday so I will have to do a little background research for you.

    Post it as a 'reply' here then all the vintage collectors can see it. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-43881-920.htm#2989524

    The pretty decals are in very good condition. Nice find!
