I just purchased a 1920ish Phoenix Treadle sewing machine model FF; have instruction book--written in German. I need to know how to thread the bobbin.

Most treadles have a bobbin filling mechanism that attaches to the a mated part near the wheel then you lower on to the treadle wheel to make it spin and wind the bobbin or do what I do...when I need something translated from German, I ask my my Bavarian Mom! If that is not an option find a new German friend, eat a your local German restaurant, or call the local embassy! Be sure to take the manual with you. More tedious and less fun is typing the German directions into a translation app.

Hello , i have a 1936 singer without the manual and need advice on how to use it.

Fantastic!!! I love these old Singers. They were built to last forever!! You'll be able to manuals, parts, whatever you need to make this baby shine!
First of all, we need to find out what model you have. Go to, Then on the right, scroll down to Machine Gallery. Under Machines, click on Singer. THen, on the left, scroll down to Household Models. Click on the model numbers until you find one that looks like yours. (You can tell that ISMACS has a lot of great information--browse to your hearts content and think about joining!)
Look at the bobbin--that's also a great clue. Is access to the bobbin case from on top? Or on the side? Is the bobbin round or shaped like a bullet?
Lastly, is your machine a treadle, hand-crank, or electric? Model 66 machines were produced as all three, and some machines that were originally treadle or hand crank have been electrified along the way. (And vice-versa---I converted one of my model 66s from electric --British, 220 volts, ca 1930--to hand crank.)
If you have some pictures, post them, ok?

I can't wait to hear back from you.
