The first is a Model DST Deluxe Streamliner straight-stitch machine, made by Matsushita in Japan:
Here's the original manual. It does not even name the machine, the date, or anything about the manufacturer:
It even came with a universal darner:
The second machine is a Queen? zigzag machine made by the Speedmaster Sewing Machine Corp. in Holland. There is even less info on this machine. I couldn't find anything like it online. Actually, I can't find anything on either machine online.
Both machines work, just a little dirty and need some T.L.C. I haven't used either one since I got them! The Queen machine needs a new bobbin winder wheel because it is worn down and it doesn't make contact well with the balance wheel when you push down on the "PUSH" lever.
If ANYONE can give me some info on these machines it would be greatly appreciated. Any and all comments are welcome. I really would like to know what I have. Any resources you can point me toward? Does anyone have one of these machines or know how much the are worth?
On a sewing note, I finished the dirdl and have a post 1/2 written. Just need the Boyfriend to take pictures! He'll be here tomorrow! Hooray! Also have a Sorbetto 1/2 sewn. Maybe I'll get it finished tomorrow and I can cut out the top of V1247.
