My son just told me about a blue Wizard Precision Deluxe sewing machine model# 401056 Japanese made. That's all I know about it and don't have a picture at this point. Does anyone know anything about these machines? Can't find much from searching online at this point. Thanks!

I have one like that now and I remember my mother's treadle machine had one also. Wish I had that treadle now . Also had a "Victrola " , anyone remember those ? Careful now your're going to be showing your age LOL

The bullet-shaped shuttle holds the bobbin.

I have a Pathe phonograph in my basement right now, though it doesn't work. It's headed for Habitat as soon as it rolls into my view again. The rest of my family better watch out, too--I'm only keeping things that work!

Miz Johnny, Thanks for trying to help me identify my old black singer machine. Sandman seems to think it is a 127 or 128. I'm still not sure. The handwheel on my machine is much smaller than the sandman's pics. I think I posted pics of my machine , not too good at this. LOL Please look under Watched Topics today's date You might find my pics. Hope so.

Nancy, I saw your beautiful model 28 on page 352. The bobbin winder on it is low, mine is much higher. Thank you for the pic though. Hope you can find the picture I posted of my machine. Don't really know what I'm doing, can you tell ? Hee Hee Hee Cannot thank you all enough for all the help I have received on this board. What a fabulous group of people.

No idea but it sounds oh so lovely and $20. I'd say run. LOL Green is good.
