Dabla Deluxe sewing machine

A good day to hop into the Morris to adopt another old sewing machine.
This weirdly named Dabla seems to be  predominantly a Singer  class 15 clone, but with some 66 features at the head of the machine.
 Typically class 15 under the bed I'd say.
 The needle seemed to catch, but after refitting the shuttle race it was running smoothly.
I wonder what the Dabla brand was supposed to signify. There's no information about this brand of sewing machines I can find.
Typical Japanese stitch length lever. Smallest setting is 20 stitches per inch.
Even though it is a straight stitch machine it is a  proud 'De Luxe'.
