    Old sewing machine - Revere Deluxe Precision Sewing Machine - FREE!!

    This morning I stopped in a Goodwill store to browse but didn't find anything exciting. As I was pulling out of the parking lot, I saw a TV and sewing machine case sitting on the ground outside next to a dumpster. I went back inside to inquire about why it was there, and if it were being thrown away. They said yes, and it was free for the taking if I wanted it. I had no idea what kind it was or what kind of shape it was in, but I figured that the price was surely right! I put it in the car and was out of there!

    When I got home and opened it up I found the prettiest turquoise blue sewing machine. It is a Revere Deluxe Precision Sewing Machine, Model CB.

    Does anyone have one like it? How do you like it? Any idea where I can find a manual? Do you have any hints about using it?

    The cords look to be in good shape, and the wheel turns. I haven't plugged it in yet.

    Thanks for any info you can give me about my new machine!

    I don't know anything about that one, but I hope it works, or you can get it working.

    Well, I am not able to load my picture, but here is a link to one that looks a lot like my new baby:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-SEWI...#ht_500wt_1026

    Here is another one that looks very much like mine, but mine doesn't say " Home mark." Mine has the word "Revere" in that place. This one is more like the color of mine.

    Finally figured it out -

    Here is the picture of the lovely one that I found ready to be put into the dumpster yesterday.

    Isn't she a beauty? I hope that I can get her to start purring. Haven't had a chance to try it yet.

    She is VERY heavy!

    What a beauty. They probably thought it was just too old and not a name brand like singer. Good Luck with it. Be sure to let us know if it works.

    Very nice find, and the price is right. I bet she will purr along well when you plug her in. Congrats on your new baby.

    With the tension on the faceplate, it a Japanese made machine fashioned after the Singer 15. They are referred to as clones, which doesn't make since as a clone would be an exact replica. If you need a manual, a free online Singer 15 would be very close. The Japanese machines have the reputation of being the better machine. Yours is very pretty. Give her a bath and a coat of wax and she'll look like new. Nice rescue!

    I can not fathom why it would have been at the dumpster. What a beautiful machine. I really want one of those Japanese 15s in that color. It should be a great machine. Give her some oil and I bet you will have a wonderful machine. Great find!

    Ahhhh, just as suspected!! A very lovely 15 clone...love her color, and she looks to be in very good condition. Nice rescue!! You'll enjoy this machine, as the feed dogs should drop for free motion quilting. Have fun with it!!

    Beautiful color. Can't believe that anyone would want to toss her.
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!

    ooooh, so pretty! I love my shiny Black machines but my heart does do a pitter-patter when I see a purdy coloured one! - it was obviously meant to be, you were in the right place at the right time.

    I believe that I am going to have it serviced and I will give it to my granddaughters to sew with. They are 14 and 11 and I have teaching them how to sew. I am sure they would have a great time using it!

    It sure is a beauty!! There is a Yahoo group for owners of the vintage Japanese machines, if you are interested. Here is the link for it:

    It was not sold on www.shopgoodwill.com. I had been watching it to see what happened. Glad it found a good home after all. Sometimes they are relisted, sometimes not.
