    Ambassador Deluxe, Model 15 Clone made in Japan

    Wow, I was doing some research and stumbled across this site. Like a lot of others, I was amazed at the machines, cases and cabinets. I hope I can do this right and post mine.
    This is my baby. My Ambassador Deluxe, Model 15 Clone made in Japan. I had been looking for a machine to buy for about 4 months and didn't see anything I wanted or a price I liked. I'm SO glad I was patient. I went to an Estate Sale and saw her with a price tag of $10 with three boxes of attachments and accessories. I talked them down to $7.75! (don't ask me how) I had to get rid of that case though. I brought her home and she worked. After a little oil and some minor cleaning she just purrs. I purchased a 60's Kenmore in a cabinet and swapped the cabinet and case. Only one scratch, but no flaws in the chrome at all and the decals are perfect! I really don't know if it was really used. And I absolutely LOVE the color.

    My newest machine. Haven't test run her yet, as I don't like the wiring.

    Grant15clone, unbelieveable deal you got! We aren't suppose to discuss the machines here so I will keep this brief, but go to http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...p-t164361.html and post this machine in the "15 clone" photo shop as well! Then we can all talk about your machine! Great color! Great shape! Congratulations. Thanks for posting, but please post in the 15 clone shop as well!

    That looks just like my 99K, it came in a case like that and had a 220 volt motor on it when I bought it. Its a hand crank and came with the spoke wheel, so it was an easy conversion.

    Miriam posted on her PDA about memories of the old measuring device used in fabric stores.
    A few years ago a friend gave me a meter made by the "Simplex Computing Measure Co.,
    Metal Works Division of the Grand Rapids Show Case Co."
    Miriam suggested that I post some pictures so here are a few pictures of mine. The first pix is the
    Simplex with fabric in it. It still works! It sure does bring back memories.

    I remember the Simplex fabric measuring device from when I was much younger, shopping for fabrics with my Mother and Grandmas.

    Hollyann, your Raymond looks so beautiful. Did you just clean it up or put new decals on it?

    Here is a photo of a machine I am working on, I posted more details of it in the main thread. Starting to really like these little 3/4 gems.

    First post! I've been reading the board for about 5 months and am very appreciative to all of the members sharing info on the Vintage Sewing Machine board. Here is my 66 and the drawing room cabinet it lives in. Special thanks to Charlee for I followed her details on how she cleaned hers. When I am finished cleaning up my Davis NVF I will post those pics. Thanks-

    This is a Domestic in excellent condition - the tag is from when it was bought - it is a 3/4 size machine. It is light weight if you take it out of its case and base. I have not figured out if I have the right needle yet. Melinda helped me find this one on shopgoodwill. Name:  three quarter size sewing machines 4-7-12 027.JPG

    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    AZ Jane,
    Your machines are beautiful! The plastic bobbins that you show with the 301, won't work. It uses the same bobbins as your featherweight does.

    LOL, there were just sitting there while I washed the bobbin holder, apparently I've had it for 1000 years or it's just really dusty in AZ!!

    Wow Jan what a collection! You have 3 Model 15's, one with the RAF decals! A model 99, a 128 HC, and it looks like a 319, but with a free arm????? Also, where in the world did you get the 222 Free Arm????? I love your collection, thanks for sharing!

    By the way, all your machines look pristine!
