Does anyone have this machine?  Bought it and the cabinet $50.00.  Good mac
hine BUT need attachments.  2 month hunt for the manual, and finally got th
at.  I need the cams, zipper foot, button holer, etc.  I have one cam that  
came with the machine that is for straight stitching,  Looked all over eBay
, but no model #'s.  Any help in this direction would be great!

You should be able to put a standard low shank foot on that machine.. possibly a set like this:

Your machine was made in Japan by Jaguar/Maruzen.  That may help in hunting for cams.

You can sometimes find machines and accessories at Thrift Stores  -
finding your specific requirements might be a challenge.
FaceBook   Buy & Sell  sites  often have  "In Search Of"  postings -
that might be a better option.  Or scour the online classified sites
like CraigsList  or  Kijiji.  
  Good Luck.

Thanks, Kay!  This has been a solid witch hunt since I bought this machine  
at an estate sale.  The model and serial number are stamped on the machine.
  I needed the manual.  Finally found that after being mislead by a reputab
le sewing center, telling me that the model number was not what I was readi
ng.  Finally got that squared away.  Now I need the cams.  When I get the a
ttachments AND the cams, then I will shut up.
