    Default need help identifying the model number

    Does anyone know the model number of this Dressmaker machine? I recently acquired it and would like to get it running again but I need the model number to get the manual and any parts it may require.

    The picture of the underside won't upload. It has the numbers J-A38, J-C36, and T19873 engraved into the metal. Are any of those numbers the model number, or do I need to look somewhere else on the machine?

    I believe the "666" on the front is the model number. This particular machine is sold under quite a few names. I really like the stitch dial, so I notice that quite often. I've even seen a pink one, but it was local pickup only - and way too far away!

    The engraved numbers are not the model number - as teh model number is specific to the badged name. I believe there is even one like this badged as White. I've seen it with Remington and a few others too. Each "badged name" has a different model number, but they are made by the same company. The stamped numbers are the Mfg identification marks.

    If you join the VintageJapan Yahoo group you'll likely get more info, but don't be in a hurry as the group owner is s-l-o-w at getting posts listed. The group also has a database of JA and JC numbers though there is a better one somewhere. Not that it will be much help but it looks like it could be a Toyota built machine.

    Are you sure that one was built in Japan? With that model number I would have guessed somewhere a little further ....ummm.... south.

    HaHa Rodney....I hope the machine doesn't give her a "devil" of a time in getting it fixed!
