    You'd be interested in this very favorable review of a Japanese White:

    @ 281 there's a photo of a Visetti, another good Japanese machine from the 1960's. I almost bought a machine like that recently......and would be spending less time seeing what a dental technician might be able to do to make molds for no-longer-obtainable nylon /plastic worm gears if I had. Strong motors and solid sounding stitcher.

I've sewn through multiple layers of heavy leather, multiple layers of awning fabric, multiple layers of webbing, yet it also handles the lightest silnylon, ripstop and no-see-um. It's in the factory cabinet and has a box full of different presser feet, stitch discs, gathering attachment and a few peices that I don't even know what they are for.



    Let's see yours!

    Um....You're not suppose to pull the thread off the roll like that. The thread is suppose to come off the spool upward and freely, go through an eye above the spool than back down to the machine. I use simple spring loaded paper clips clipped onto a screw in the ceiling above the spool than rout the thread thru the round handle of the clip. There should be absolutely no tension on the thread until it gets to the thread tensioner on the machine.
    Just saying.. Nice machine BTW.

    As far as I can tell, he has it threaded exactly like it instructs in the Singer user manual.

    That shows the machine using small household spools. He is using a 4oz cone of thread and is suppose to rig it like so.

    This was my mother's machine. It's a 1958 Montgomery Wards URR-279A.

    I have a lot to learn about this, but my first few projects have gone well.
