Cari, I am betting you have the Fleetwood and the Wizard. But not a handcrank on either of them.

I found all three of these on Craigslist. 3 different cities.

Nope I have the 160 Cambridge in the middle and the Wizard. Also have a cousin to the Cambridge, a Brother built Olympia. Not a hand crank on any of them.

Leon I was on my Flickr page today and saw a pic of my 160 Cambridge(my machines have been in storage since last August) and I think it's not the same as that middle machine of yours. I just saw the upper tension on the face plate and immediately thought of mine. I can't post a link to Flickr or I'll get a hand smack so here's a link to an Electro Grand that's identical to my 160 Cambridge -

so pretty! leonf, you really do travel around for machines... but please don't get me started on collecting machines by color, have quite a few hand cranks that I just love.

Cari, looks nice. I usually don't buy for color but I do like these. And Cheskat, I do travel a lot of KS and neighboring states, and I check CL before I start. I am working really hard NOT to go look at a cream colored 15 Clone in my own town.

Got a kick out of the case and control, too.

Too bad you are so far away. I have a Universal that wants a new home that would give you quadruplets. It's in a cabinet. Such pretty machines!

My mother had the Wizard version that looked just like this one. I learned to sew on it. That is the the only other machine I wish I could find to add to my collection.

[ATTACH=CONFIG]596435[/ATTACH] This machine went with us to a demo event. There as also a hot rod show. This bombshell was posing for pinup art. Since she matched the Wizard we had to play. She didn't sew. I had adapted the machine to handcrank.
