About some of the FW copies of recent years. Back in the mid 1980's
some shops were selling a copy dated 1987 for $299 called Mal's Mini Classic.
They were warehoused in Los Angeles at 6316 W. Third St. and the shop owner
claimed to me that this company had purchased the original dies from Singer.
The machine certainly looked like the original FWS but was of very inferior
quality material, the light was mounted on the motor, the front decal said
"Mini Classic", and it had a 1/16 HP motor.
