    Default Cams for Montgomery Ward Jewel machine

    OK, it seems these cams are scarce on the ground from the searching I have done so far so...I am sending out a "plea" to see if anyone has cam that will work with a Montgomery Ward...known to my family as Monkey Wards...Jewel machine. I am going on the assumption that all of the Jewel cams will work with all of the machines. If you know differently please let me know.
    I am looking at a 21 Jewel machine that is on my WANT list and they have nothing but the machine and foot pedal and electric cord. I am reluctant to buy as I know it will be very hard to find the cams on their own.
    If someone has any they would part with please let me know...
    Thanks friends

    Not looking too promising.
    Keep me in your memory banks in case anyone finds these cams in the future.

    Thanks for those who looked!

    Cathie,

    Keep checking on ShopGoodwill.com. The white plastic cams not only fit on the 7 Jewell machines, but also on some of the MW Signature machines.
    The sets for the Signatures come in a fancy plastic box with the accessory feet too.

    Thanx for the info Joe. That might make it OK to get the one I am looking at as long as its in good shape otherwise.

    I have these cams. The box says Montgomery Ward. Will they work for you?

    Looking at the picture Joe posted I think they are different cams...That box looks brand new!
    I guess the previous owner wasn't curious about what they did in the machine.

    Picked up my MW 21 Jewell today minus the cams and wondering about a manual.
    Also when she demo-ed the machine it would stitch for 2 maybe 3 inches then snap goes the upper thread. The stitches look nice and even so I am wondering what might be causing the problem.
    I plan on working on it in a few weeks as I am leaving town for a bit but it would be nice to know if there are some quirks or tricks.

    I think it very well may be!
    Dang though with the shipping it's more than what I paid for the machine LOL
    Thanks for checking Cathy I had my ongoing search term as MW Jewell cams and someone had mentioned that the Signature line also used the same ones.
    Wish it were more cams but at this point "beggars can't be choosers"!

    Macybaby, Cathie,


    The cams shown in the eBay add have four patterns per cam. The ones for my machine and others only one per cam.
    Before you drop you cash, make sure which your machine takes.

    I don't know if my machine or those like it, it has a cam follower protruding from the top, will work with the quad cams or not.

    Joe
