    It measures 3 1/4 inch wide and had the screws evenly spaced on each side, not offset. It measures 5 inches from front to back. Strange, it has a screw hole on the machine behind the needle where something went. Caroline S has a Brother 280 that looks similiar. The 1977 Kenmore 158.13571, jlm5419. the Stitchmaster, grant 15clone.

    Why am I obsessed with returning her to working condition? Uh, do I really need to explain that to this group?
    I may have the missing plate on a White someone left me... I'll have to measure it.

    Pink Coronado

    I'm not sure if this is a 'badged' machine or where it was made. There are no indications anywhere on it. It is a Coronado Model M-93Z, Precision Built Automatic, Super Deluxe. It was inside a treadle cabinet I wanted and thought the machine was a bit different. The lady said it didn't work, but I took it anyway. When we plugged it in the motor smoked so it was unplugged immediately. I've cleaned the machine and oiled it; removed the motor for repair or replacement, but the machine seems to be in very good shape and everything moves smoothly. Picture is a bit fuzzy, sorry.

    It really is pink with a brown top, not orange as in the picture.

    Nice looking machine. There may be some markings underneath the bed as to the maker, though it was likely made in Japan.

    Very likely made in Japan - I have seen others with that name but they didn't look the same. They must have had some really fun times painting those Japanese machines. Don't you just love the paint???

    It definitely is a Japanese clone. Under the motor mount in tiny little letters it says "made in Japan"

    I just bought a Dressmaker sewing machine at a garage sale today that is like the one on page 10 of this thread, owned by grant 15 clone. It doesn't look like it has been used for $15.00. The book looks like new and the there is a complete box of cams and tools. I cannot find any information about the mfg or possible year. The motor has YM40 serial # 1692 then a silver plate beside that number that I can't read. Can anyone help.

    I have a manual for that Dressmaker. I do not know how to make an electronic copy. Photo copy is doable - quite a few pages.

    I just bought a Dressmaker Centennial Series at an estate sale. All she needed was a little oil, now she sews like a charm. She is in mint condition.
