All of these work wonderfully and I use them all and am currently trying to sell the 2 year old machine that I don't love :mrgreen:
    I only paid $25 for the International, I can't figure out why the clones have no real value, but I guess it's all in a name.
    Hopefully, the clones stay down in price so we can all get them! We will keep it a secret what great machines those clones are! Nice International, Singer 15 clone and FW!

    Singer 15K Treadle, Serial #Y2915529, July 28, 1925, Clydebank, Scotland.

    This is my first restoration project. I bought this 15K while living in France in the 80's and 90's, and used it at the time to set my modern machine on. I brought it back with me, and never thought of restoring, or using it, until I found you all.

    Nickylsf - Hilarious French decals. I know the French often don't know the difference between England and Scotland, but to get it wrong on a decal, oh dear! That machine is worth every penny for the joke value.

    I just got my featherweight today (ebay). The light works and the motor runs to move the belt but the needle is not going up and down. It did not come with a manual. Can someone help me?

    Is the stop motion screw on the hand wheel tightened?

    Hey, thanks, Surfergirl! That helped! I am able to sew now. It did end up with the thread getting caught up inside the machine. Guess I still need to figure some things out.
    Those are a few of your machines. Wow!

    Here is my "newest" sewing machine. It arrived in the mail, this week, from Billy (lostin51). It is an Atlas Precision Sewing Machine. I don't know much about it yet but I have been searching for more information about it.

    My 9 and 10 yr olds have been arguing for 2 days, now, about who is going to get it when I die :shock: :shock: :shock:

    I love the Necchi machines. The Mira BU was missing the Wonder Wheel attachment and they are really hard to find.

    Yes, my husband and I both have the VSMAD really bad. We love these old machines and I not only collect them, I use them. The problem is I'm running out of room for them. I can't seem to be able to part with them and still look for more! Your Atlas machine looks good...I bet it sews really nice, too.

    You will love your little Featherweight. They're really easy to use and maintain. You just might end up like me and a lot of others and this could be the beginning of your collection of vintage machines. Mine began with the Necchi Supernova Bu.

    I have 3 Necchis and from lokoing at yours I also have the Mira BU. What is the Wonderwheel attachment? I ask because mine only has the one presser foot it came with but I got it for free. Also do you a manula for the Mira BU?

    If you go to Yahoo Groups and join the Necchi Sewing Circle, you can download a free copy of the manual for the Necchi Mira Bu and the Wonder Wheel Attachment. With the Wonder Wheel, you can sew decorative stitches, etc.

    Thanks for the information. I will join them. I am a lurking member of the Vintage Nechhi group.

    Pam H,
    Don't turn the handwheel backwards and you won't get any
    threads caught in the machine.
    Have fun with your new toy!

    Hmm, I would have thought the decals were applied at the factory.

    Just picked this little beauty up last night at an auction...for $2.00!!! She had the wrong foot controller with her, but the one from my 221 fits. After oiling and lubricating and fiddling with the tension, she sews perfectly!!! :)

    She has a couple of feet, about a dozen bobbins and her original manual. From her serial number she dates from 1950-1951, born in Anderson, SC.

    I dare say they were, but no self respecting Scot would have come up with that wording and I doubt an Englishman in Scotland - especially Glasgow - would have dared.

    well- i did not know i was in the market for this little jem- but i am sure glad she found me :)
    stopped in to a neighbors garage sale saturday morning and sitting on the floor was this little case with a singer handle--- i opened it and it just took my breath away- it was so clean- all decals intact- cord looking good- light works- every thing works- the case is the only thing about it that shows any wear- it has some damage- but the machine i do not think was used much at all-
    it is a 99K- from 1956...i am going to go give it a good going over and oil it (when i get off this dog-gone computer)
    i am so happy with it :thumbup:
    for 3 years now i have been wanting to pick up a second machine- for taking places (i hate lugging my viking around) had looked at many different (new) machines- nothing (spoke) to me---this one...hubby was with me- he was as excited about this one as i was...
    it has 1 foot-on it- one bobbin- and one needle --- no attachments were with it- i have now joined the world of singer vintage machines...oh boy ;)
