    Beautiful decals. Are those the original decals? Your machine looks great now, can't wait til it is cleaned up!

    The bobbin holder is missing and not sure if there is more parts that should be there. Also need a needle plate as the little clip on the bottom that holds it on is broken. Billy can you help me find it in the shop? What type of bobbin with this take?

    Now decisions, to treadle or hand crank? Doing a happy dance today!

    Oh Lisa how in the world do you do it? you keep finding these rascals and I am really amazed. As far as the parts I will PM you and get you the links to where they live at.

    This machine will take the class 15 bobbins and I notice that the hook is missing and the clip that holds everything in and the bobbin case. All of which you can get from this one place I am PMing you.

    Hi and here is my newest baby blue; I have searched everywhere on new and cannot find my big blue machine.
    She is a Home Mark model # Ke77326 made in Japan. Plate on front says Precision built and initials T.JK. carved in neck. Has anyone seen one of these before. She was only $9 and needs needle screw and the cord replaced to foot pedal. Thank you for any help

    beautiful blue and weights about 40lbs.

    Sue, That is a beautiful machine! Billy will pop on and tell you more. But looks like another "badged" machine from Japan.

    Congratulations.

    Lisa you are right again!! That is gorgeous and if I am correct I know a cute someone in Colorado has one real similar to that one. I made sure I wrote the stamped letters in my notes to try and figure this machines maker out. But it will be years from getting that nailed down I am afraid unless something opens up in my research.

    Hey BK what is the name on your machine and does it have any markings like this one?

    You blue machine is absolutely gorgeous. I can't believe how beautiful that is. That reminds me that there is a blue machine that I need to see if it is still for sale. Thanks for posting photos of your machine.

    Happy 4th to everyone. Have a safe weekend and meet back here in the shop on Monday. Lots of auctions and yard sales to go to I'm sure. So we will see how many machines follow us home.

    Linda, Thanks. I think they are real but have never seen them before. There a just a few dings in the japan that I will try Billy's paint pen suggestion to touch up. I am getting the list of parts together for the bobbin and get those ordered. It will have to wait until I get back from trip next weekend to get her together.

    Billy, I just check CL every few days and see what's there. I need to retire so I can get to work on all these machines and sew!

    Oh, ment to tell everyone I just got my Singer 301A from Canada. You wouldn't beleive how it was packaged. The machine and parts were wrapped in bubble wrap and put in the case. Then the whole case was wrapped in an egg crate mattress. Had a hard time getting it out of the box. The outside of the box was totally wrapped in clear tape. The machine came through with flying colors and works like a dream. I feel very lucky that the person I won her from took such great care in wrapping. I wish I had taken pictures now of how she was wrapped. Here is her picture. (didn't mean to tell so much but I am excited!)

    DH calles her Ellie from Canada

    That is a handsome machine Crossstitcher you did very well on the purchase of that one. And to know that the shipping was not an issue makes it that much more better.
