NEW PAGE - Service Manuals and Parts Lists

Many machines are abandoned for lack of a manual. If you can't see your machine in these pages, please ask, as I may have one which will do the job... At the very least, I can probably help you to thread it.

Condition means what it says - New means "Never opened, I wonder why I can't make this work" - Good or Very Good means all in one piece, clean, complete, and fragrant.
Fair means usable but may be scruffy, stained, oily or dogeared, but complete
Poor means loose pages, scruffy, and/or fragile.

Most of the poor ones have been reproduced or can be.
I do not sell incomplete manuals (covers missing sometimes, but the information should all be there)
Page whipped into shape and tickled unmercifully, October 20th 2015, then updated pretty much every day since..
