    I've never had a clone parts machine - that is saying a lot - That clone would sew - the rest could be for parts maybe....

    I want to know how he did it too. I'm having to put steering wheel spinners on some to do that. I can't find the handle anywhere. He had to have some machine tools to get it out there straight.

    The handle looks like some kind of tool handle. I bet Steve, with his machining knowledge, could figure out how to do it.

    Drill press to get it straight, bolt from the Hardware store and a rolling pin handle.

    YES!!! I knew I recognized that handle from somewhere. I guess I need to look in my kitchen instead of the garage. Thanks G.

    I am not interested in buying it, just interestedin learning more about hand cranks for a possible re-furbishing soon :-)
    I don't think you got your answer. Yes, one stitch per crank revolution. This would be very precise but I think on this setup your hand would hit the stop motion knob. It sticks out a ways.

    Okay, now people are holding "viewings" of machines... what, is it deceased or something? And no pictures, no information, no nothing. I'm sure this person will get a bunch of calls.. NOT!

    JA is not the serial #. It means it was made in a Japanese factory. A #7 can easily look like a #2 and vice versa. I bet it is from the late sixties / early seventies and that would fit. Crazy looking machine. Looks more like a Kenmore than a Singer, but at least they got the name right.

    And Donna, Viewings is Hilarious! Maybe we should send flowers.

    Grant - I agree - if the seller doesn't research further they just post what they think will make the sale. Maybe they should have a "viewing"

    Knock off a zero, and divide by two, and then maybe. Why do the pictures look so crappy?

    My iPad takes pictures that look like that. I usually have to use my phone or god forbid, the REAL camera!!!

    I thought I was missing something but it's the machine that's missing. Now, it is a nice cabinet but not at that price.

    Now, here's a seller of few words. I'll bet this lovely specimen works great.....it certainly seems to be in wonderful condition. Wish I knew how to make a sarcasm smiley.

    Good grief! I can't tell what they're asking... $450 to help them learn to thread it?

    "I have a old sewing machine the work i dont no how to thread it i would like 450.00 For it or someone help me do it so i can finseh my stuff call At xxxxxxxxx thank you its a very good sewing it works good."

    At least it works good! Though I'm not sure how you'd tell that if you can't thread it...

    It's a 15-91,... does that help the compulsion?

    I think they either want to sell it for $450, or want someone to show them how to thread it, neither of which is likely going to occur.
