I found my all steel 148.15600 in its case on the floor at my local thrift store. It had a price of $13.50. Then I realized it was $3.50 after a discount. This was definetely a bargain buy.
I like it has a built-in buttonhole setting and decorative patterns. One interesting thing on this machine is the front mounted on/off switch. It controls the power and the light.
I thought this era of Kenmore had high shank and/or left needle position, but this one is low shank and center.
This is definitely a keeper.
I have to stop going to the thrift store! .....Maybe not!
Thanks for stopping.
