All I can tell you is that the machine was made in Japan and is what we call a shoe patcher. It is used to sew the uppers on boots and shoes, or to fix purses, or to sew decorative patches onto motorcycle vests and jackets.

That said, I am moving this to the Leather Sewing Machines forum. You will have a better chance of getting help there.

What do you intend to use the machine for? Leather weight? Thread size? Needle size?

I´m no "Colibri type" patcher expert but this one looks like an early CLAES & FLentje patcher with large hook (nowadays subclass 30). As far as I know they are still using the same hook and presser feet. So most likely this machine will need System 88 needles. I think Mitsubishi just put their badge on it. 

Cool machine - it does not have all the fancy bling bling decor stuff - I like it!  :)

Many thanks for your answers. This sewing machine came to me from the point of reception of scrap metal. The mechanisms work well, but have not yet tested for performance. At the moment I'm using the Chinese sewing machine (patcher) thanks for the explanation of Wizcrafts . I hope that I can use needles and thread as in a Chinese sewing machine. DrmCa answering your question - tracksuits kapron Н30. Needles Groz-Beckert 134 LR . I'm not a specialist in shoe making, I'm fond of sewing shoes in my spare time, I sew shoes for myself and my family.
I agree with Constabulary , this car is very similar to the Claes & Flente, but some small details are completely different. For example, the wheel with the logo has another drum and the levers are slightly different in shape. In any case, I will try to work on it and would like to show its work and tell about my impressions about this machine.
