    Morse Zig Zag deluxe sewing machine, model 560

    Like the title says, Morse Zig Zag deluxe sewing machine, model 560.

    I can get one for free. Says it works.

    Is this a keeper or should I keep looking around?

    No, you should send it to me. I'll cover packing and shipping.

    But, seriously, you can find a Youtube in which a medium age recent sewist compares the sound of a Morse with that of a "recent sm meant for lighter duty." My paraphrase.

    That is / was a very well-made Japanese SM, by Toyota, with parts readily available from other machines, if necessary. You'll find lots online on threading and operation. Get some kerosene or 90% alcohol to de-varnish it, some brushes, some white oil, and have at it.

    AND, if it is equipped like this: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-W...0/IMG_5090.JPG , it will have push-button adjustable feed dog heights. Can't make out if one of those settings is "Silk" or "Sil". <smile>

    I'm still trying to find out more about it. My friend says it's a 60's model #560, but I can't find anything on a 560 except for the Singer 560 Diana.

    I'll let you know what it is when I find out more.

    If it's anything like that MZZ, I'll definitely grab it up.

    If it is free take it and find out later if you should give it away.

    Well I didn't get it. Nuts.

    I'll have to remain happy with less.
