I have a Dressmaker 7000 ZZ machine with cams.
Nice machine, though it needed some work. I've been working on it today and got the needle position problem fixed and a bit of the ZZ worked over. As I've been working on it I've been looking for indications of where it's made.
I don't think it's a Japanese machine as there's no J- A numbers on it.
The only numbers I can find are on a little metal placard under the lip at the front of the machine. It reads:
LTS - 033887
The motor is made by Matsushita in Taiwan.
Other than that there is no "MADE IN xxx" anywhere on this machine. Only the name, model # and serial #.
The only identifying mark is a large finger print under the bed. That is under the shaft and would have had to been made when the machine was completely apart.
I haven't started my research on this machine yet, so any help, links, or data will be very much appreciated.
