OK, I'll play! First I have this great DeLuxe Emporium 146 B. Made around 1968 I think. Left needle. Zig Zag and automatic buttonholer. Quiet, strong and sews like a dream. It's taken over as my "downstairs" machine. I hate having to run up and down stairs just to make some quick stitches.[ATTACH=CONFIG]381005[/ATTACH]

I also have a few Kenmores, but my favorite is this [ATTACH=CONFIG]381007[/ATTACH] 158.523. With all the cams and a groovy box of attachments.

Suzie Sewmor is now in hiding from Joey. She is one very nice and strong sewing machine. All of the searches that I did on her model number came up with another type of sewing machine. The plates does say 606 on it. But nothing on her tells me who the manufacturer was. She is sort of a hybrid between Singer, Brother and Necchi.

Caroline,

When I was researching my 404 I came across that same comment about the 606. Seems there was two different machines with the same model number. I have no idea where I found that, but if I come across it I'll let you know.
I've seen three different SEWMOR model numbers; the 202 which is a 15 clone, the 404 which is a cross between the 201 and 66, and the 606 which has two versions.
Making a total of four. I'm partial to the Sewmors and want all four. Eventually.

Joe

Default Dressmaker Model 295

Dressmaker Precision Zig Zag sewing machine. Model 295, serial number 00050. No JA number on this one but a large "V" and "T" are stamped underneath. The motor is made by YDK, model YM40, 115-130 V/80 watts. This is the only machine that I have that has a made in Japan motor. The straight stitch sewing position for the needle is left.

Yep, don't have any "after" pics yet. Working on it.

Does the Sewmor 606 I was gonna buy from you look like the one cabbagepatchkid posted above? I don't remember.

It looks like it is out of the same cookie cutter but the paint is much different.

Still got some fine tuning to do, especially with the button hole setting knob, but she'll do SS and ZZ just fine.

Joe does that have a camstack? I'm trying to justify that knob and lever on the left. That one sure doesn't have any glitz does it or is an extra lever and knob the glitz? Does the lever release something so the dial can turn? It is amazing how nice they look when they get a little cleaning.
