Question about Sewing Machines
Posted by Anonymous on
There is no Make or Model name or even a model number? Japan cloned a lot of sewing machines for many years--even machines sold by JC Penney, Montgomery Ward, etc.

I solved this problem by going to a post on FixYa dated 6/4/08 oor 09 by Timetoknit.
The post mentioned a free download of "White's" Manual that is out of print, at White's sister company "the Singer Sewing Company's" website: www.singerco.com It also gave the download steps. The download steps are on my Solution post.
I downloaded the manual and printed it on 7/30/09.
Thanks for being here.

Hi! I just love old sewing machines and am so glad to hear that you want to use it! (You don't really need to know the age to get started, BTW.) I did a quick search for Cromwell DeLuxe and came up negative--but all that means is that your machine was probably a badged machine. In other words, it was manufactured for a distributor (perhaps a local store) and the distributor put their name on it instead of the manufacturer's name.
Here are two great links to get you started:
Many badged machines (and others) were built by Japanese companies (see if you machine has a JA- or JC- number on it) and this site has just loads of great information on these machines, plus lots of photographs.
This group is dedicated to "keeping classic, mechanical sewing machines in use and dollars in your pocket" --which sounds like a great deal to me! They also have loads of information, including some generic manuals, photos, and great how-to tips.
Email me and let me know how it goes!

Testimonial: "Thank you so much! I would still love to know the age of this incredible machine just out of pure curiousity, but the Japanese info was great. Thanks."
