    Dressmaker Model S3000 Need Cams

    I purchased this in a thrift shop. Took some time to get her running right. Does a great straight stitch. Am looking for CAMS for it. Any suggestions, or should I just accept her as slightly disabled and use her for SS? I did find a manual from Sewingmanuals.com. This machine is a beauty, clean. I looked on EBay for cams, but the cams I could identify by the numbers (when I could SEE the numbers and pics on the dark cams) didn't match the diagrams on my machine. Any help would be appreciated. This is my 11th machine. I would post a picture but my hands are so shakey (as I am older) I can't get a good focus.

    Jane,

    I have a set of cams we cannot identify. There is no makers markings, or machine ID on them at all. Here's a pic:

    I will try to import this into photoshop and see if I can get better images. Thank you. Will get back to you if there is a match.

    Could not get enough details from your photo to indentify. I made some drawings of the designs on the machine, and could scan it and email to you and maybe you could look and see if any of these resemble those cams? Please let me know your email. I have a time getting photos loaded into this program. Am 77 and hand is shakey...

    I looked on Ebay and they have some Dressmaker machines, none of them have the cams! LOL. I am seeing a lot of Dressmaker machines looking for their "babie" which are floating around somewhere in Never Can Find Land. Thank you for taking the trouble.

    Jane,

    Here is the full sized version.

    If you want to PM me your email address I can send it to you that way as well. Does your owners manual show a picture of the cams? Those I have do, even if they are not really good.
    If we do email addresses it would be easier for you to send me pics of your machine. And maybe a scan of the manual's pic of the cams.

    Also #1, click on the pic to view the larger version.
    Also #2, sometime today I'll take a macro pic of both sides of one of the cams for you.

    Jane,

    Your S3000 control panel is almost identical to my Dressmaker 7000. Here is a some pics of it. If your machine is like mine, the cams should be the same.

    Front:

    Trap door for cams on top:


    Close up of cams:

    The cams are 1 1/8" in diameter.

    Hope this helps.

    I will have to look at the opening to make sure they would fit. Do you know where I could purchase some, even just a few?

    Thank you so much for helping me. I really appreciate it. Am a little under the weather today, dizziness and problems walking. Am still recovering from Colon Cancer, but they did get it all they said. Thank you again Joe, you have helped so many on this board.

    Jane,

    Our cams came with the machine that came from a Goodwill auction. We will keep our eyes open.
    Check your local thrift stores when you are able.
