    This machine is one my boss owns - it is only straight stitch - very nice machine and willing to sew anything - he loves to sew costumes for plays.

    Sewmor machines make a very nice straight stitch and come in a variety of styles

    Those Sewmor machines are not 15 clones because of the tension on the front they are straight stitch only. The gray one has a drop in bobbin like a Singer 66 - the blue one is like a clone except for the tension on the front

    When I got the gray machine it was totally brown. I keep cleaning more stuff off it all the time - I think it wants to be petted or something. It turns so well - nice machine.
