I'm a newbie at this stuff, but am guessing the dog is slightly hung up somewhere. Any suggestions for where I should be looking?
    Noel, is the pressure regulator pushed down or up? It should be down if it is up material won't feed through very well.

    Identical Dressmaker Deluxe

    Hi, I have an identical Dressmaker Deluxe #SWA-2000. I picked it up for peanuts at an auction here in Kansas. It didn't have a manual. Anyone able to point me in the direction of a printable manual on-line? I pick up machines that are clean, and working for 4-H members. I have 3 cabinet models, and 3 in hard cases. I have not paid over $10 each for any of them. They are usually at the end of the auctions...The kids don't mind, as long as they work!

    Good for you. I hate that we live in such a disposable society. That's why these vintage machines appeal so much to me. You can actually fix them instead of throwing them away. What a concept. I just printed the manual from this site: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/vintag...achines/files/ Lots of other ones there too.

    Does anyone have a photo/color of the cams this machine takes? I just picked one up today. Thanks
