I had removed the grill earlier and confirmed the wood slats were sporadically replaced. For some reason the two lower door hinges were replaced with gold hinges that are too small. The top two hinges look just like Credenza hinges and look correct. And they drilled new holes! This poor machine has lead a tough life. The motor does not work so I still have not heard the machine. I now see the holes on the tungs-tone escutcheons. I don't know why all the screws were removed. I removed the motor board and still cannot find an ID tag anywhere. But I am pretty sure it is an HMV-203.


The ID tag is under the round lift out needle tin

Did you look under the waste needle pot?

I read that it was under the needle pot. There is nothing there or inside the motor compartment.
Someone removed the screws on the needle cups so maybe they removed the ID tag.

I wonder why they were removed seems a strange thing to do and on many machines as experienced here :?
