Made in the 1960's. Our sewing machine repair professional worked for Singer for YEARS.
He verified that this is a heavy duty / industrial grade machine, good for sewing denim, leather, etc for personal projects or as a cottage industry (not in industrial amounts). In the sewing world, this machine is called a "clone" of the Singer 15 machine. Singer 15 "clones" were made in Japan after Singer stopped making the 15 machines. At the end of World War II the US government gave the Japanese the blueprints to the Singer 15 sewing machine to help rebuild Japan's economy.And the benefit is that these "clones" have upgrades - they run smoother and. Have extra features like reverse stitch and an easy switch to raise and lower the feed dogs. As well as the chrome hand wheel instead of the painted ones that seem to get chipped. They are work-horses, and often quite beautiful like this one! You're sure to love this. A beautiful vintage sewing machine in blue and gold. Gorgeous decals in great condition, which is hard to find! A lovely machine, all original. In excellent condition, as seen in the photos. Completely serviced and ready for you. Straight stitch, with adjustments for pressure and tension. Generous harp area (work area between needle and right side). Strong 1.5 amp motor by Premier, made in Japan. Included with this set are two attachments, a small screwdriver, extra bobbin and needles (our sewing repair professional says to use the Singer color coded needles with these vintage machines as the best option). Also included is a thimble, measuring tape, pair of sewing scissors, EZ-IN needle threader, pin cushion and magnifying glass.
We are including a photocopy of a manual for these class 15 machines only very slight differences between the manual and this machine - we used the manual and it's very accurate and helpful! This is a standard-size sewing machine with a base measuring 14 1/2" x 6 7/8". You're going to love it!
