Kenmore made a nice machine - uses cams - this one still needs some work but seems like a good machine.

I sure hope the pictures loaded alright - some times I seem to get too many pictures on one page or something and they don't come up. Maybe I post them too soon after another picture. Then if I post them on another page the picture will show up.

I try to load the pics that don't come up again later. I'm not exactly sure about the Kenmore - not sure where it was made - some were made in Italy. I do know it is a very nice machine.

OK, so Miriam has a bunch of Japanese ZZ / fancy stitch machines. Cool .... so, to add to her thread here are my Japanese fancy stitch machines.

Montgomery Wards, 7 Jewell Model URR-988A:

It does not have any built in stitches but the ZZ and uses cams for everything else.

Alden, SUZ-2 Super Deluxe Zig Zag:

This machine has a very large built in cam stack. I think with all the variations you could do around 60+ fancy stitches.
Marked J-A /3 which I believe is KOYO.

Dressmaker 7000:

Uses cams. Has 30 to choose from.

Montgomery Wards, Signature Model UHT J275A:

Uses cams but only came with a small number. Very nice and quiet machine. Marked J-A 10 and J-C 12. It is stamped HAPPY underneath.

Sears Kenmore, Model 158-523

This was a free machine . It lives in a cabinet, uses cams and is a very strong sewer. It is marked J-A 4 and was made by Maruzen/Jaguar.

Ideal Automatik

This machine is marked J- no number on the lip of the bed and j-C 1 on the under side of the bed. Manufactured by Brother. The decal on the lip says: Made in the Republic of Ireland. All the printing on the machine is German and when we got it the original 240V German motor was still in place.
It uses cams and has a set of 20 with it.

I'll try again to get this picture up. I'm not sure it was made in Italy or Japan though.

This one needs a set of disks - does anybody know what the disks look like?

And another Kenmore - a bit different - probably made in Italy - I do have a nice set of attachments and cams for it - the table is pretty cool too - it is sort of in storage though.

Miriam,

I've got a set of cams I've never been able to match up to a machine. I'm going to bring them to try on the Kenmore you're going to or have picked up for us. We can check them on your machine too as the trap door is about the same size and in the same place.

cool - I have extra cams around that don't fit any thing I own and don't have any markings on them.
