    The model # may be underneath the machine.

    It does look like a Japanese clone. Is there a stamp or marking anywhere on the machine that says Japan? Love the two tone cream and green paint.

    Do you really need a manual? It's a very cute machine but very easy to see what does what...

    Caroline, It says manufactured in Japan by Matsushita on one tag and then Made in Korea on the other. They are in the pic above, although hard to read.

    Candace,
    I'm new to sewing. This was my grandmother's machine and I can't even figure out how to wind a bobbin! LOL

    I can't figure out how to disengage the motor from the sewing needle to turn the bobbin wheel.

    Thought so, a Japanese clone. I doubt you find a manual for it. The next step would be to determine what machine it was cloned from. I think that if you push down on the chrome lever for the bobbin winder it will disengage from the wheel. Can you take a closeup of the bobbin winder mechanism? That might help.
