    Cool MODERNAGE Super DE Luxe Precision Sewing machine~I have ??????

    Someone tagged me in this photo on FB of a Modernage Super de Luxe sewing machine. I know nothing about this machine but am thinking it is a Japanese Clone. He is accepting offers but I have no idea what these even sell for. Once he figured out how to plug it in and turn on the machine he says it does work but the belt need replacing. The cabinet looks to be in beautiful condition as well as the machine itself.
    Comments please... Thanks so much for your knowledge

    It is in a fairly nice cabinet, perhaps make an offer of $25.00 but I would not pay more than $45.00 if he wants more.

    Beautiful machine. That is a very pretty cabinet.
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.

    I hope you got this machine by now. It is a Singer Model 15 Clone. The best machine I have sewn on is a Singer model 15 Clone. Everything positive that is said about them is true in my opinion. Send some better pictures if you do get it.

    I too have a Modernage Super Deluxe sewing machine. It was given to me yesterday without a cabinet. Is $25 what it is worth or was that just a good offer? Mine has a label on it that says "Reg US Patent Office". Are you sure these are made in Japan?

    Super Deluxe equals made in Japan. Look underneath and see if there is a JA or JC number. That will also indicate that the machine was made in Japan.

    Hi...I just found this site. My mother-in-law passed away a few years ago and she had a Modernage Super De Luxe Precision sewing machine which was given to me. I did not receive an instruction manuel. I am wondering what size belt this machine takes? The one on the machine was cracked, and finally broke. I did find an instruction manual for this machine online, and it says it's a "v belt". Doesn't mention anything about the size. The model # is 615074, and it does say made in Japan on the front. Thanks.

    If you still have the belt, measure the length of it, and then you can order one in that size. Any sewing machine shop in your area should have one, or you can order one online.

    If the belt is not still on it, wrap a piece of fabric around it then measure the length. I've used the stretchable belts from Sew-Classic, they work great and you only need a pretty good idea of the length. BTW, that is a very pretty machine.
    Life is made up of bits and pieces. You won't know how it'll turn out till its done.

    I also have a Modernage Super Deluxe but I don't know anything about it. Are you saying it is a Singer knockoff? Mine is not in a cabinet. I would like more information on it. My serial # is R54147. Any ideas when it would have been manufactured?

    How did you find the model number? I have a modernage too but I don't have an owners manual.

    #1nonnie yes that is a Singer model 15 clone. After WWII the Japanese were given (or sold?) permission to copy some US manufactured goods in order to rebuild thier economy. Singer model 15 sewing machines were 1 item that Japan copied after the war. I don't know anything about all the details but that's how it started. By many accounts here the 15 clones produced in Japan are every bit as good, perhaps better than, the ones Singer made themselves.
    You may want to take a look for the thread "Will the Real 15 Clone Please Stand Up". There may be more info there for you.

    Rodney,

    It's strange, but I just returned from a local thrift shop with a De Luxe Dressmaker machine in a cabinet just like the one in your picture. The machine label said made in Japan and looks like a Singer/Kenmore from the late 60's or early 70's. It works and need's a good cleaning an oiling. It came with a knee controller in the cabinet and another one for the floor. Price on the combo was $40 and It traded some items so the cost was $0. And on the way out she said to take this one also. It is a 1922 Singer model 66 "red eye". Not a bad score for one afternoon!
