Singer Manuals


Many machines are abandoned for lack of a manual. If you can't see your machine here, please ask, as I may have one which will do the job... (Note that these are not in number order.. Another day's project..) At the very least, I can probably help you to thread it.

Condition means what it says - 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

If you can download from the net there is a link on this page here for free copies of 15k, 66/99k and 128/28/127/27k manuals..

Page updated 1st December 2016 after much (further) head-scratching.. (and I tend to remove sold items at once, so you may be sure of these)

Reproduced Singer Manuals

The following Singer Repro Manuals are available from stock. In addition, anything listed in the Originals List below can be supplied as a reproduced manual (not all will be an exact facsimile, but all will be legible, usable, and informative), and I have many more on the computer, please ask if you need a particular model or type.
All repro manuals are laser-printed on good quality white paper and have card covers. These are not photocopies and the text and illustrations have been professionally "cleaned-up", often from poor originals that are hard-to-find.
Most have stitched bindings and almost all have been expanded in size for clarity. "Green" book reprints are approx double the original size and some have expanded Attachments sections
