I dug out my mothers old brother machine which has not been used for 20 plus years. with some cleaning and oil it sews straith stitch and zigzag. It was purchased in probaly in 70's It says Profile 831 ,made in Japan ,that is the only thing I can find as the model # . It has a metal tag which I think is the serial # J-A-28 L86600757. It came with several stitch cams to make decorative stiches. I have not been able to find the originals, or so far have not been able to find any information whatsoever about this machine manual or anything else .Would like any info anyone can give.I would like to find a set of the stich cams,plus any info. I am beginning to think they only made 1 of this model. Has anyone heard of this model? Thanks for any info.

I bought one from a thrift store for $15 a few hours ago. It is missing the bobbin case. I have tried to locate one, but have not turned up anything yet. I contacted Brother, and they said it is obsolete. They do not carry parts for it any longer. The local sew vac shop says they can't get anything for it. I have an inquiry into a vintage sewing machine expert. Did you ever find any parts for yours?
