I need a manual and parts book for a treadle sewing machine. Serial number B481745. I believe model is 27.


go google and type in---workshop manual for singer sewing machine model 27--
the beauty of singer is that there were few changes made in the treadle series so any book around that age would be helpful

I have a singer 128 vibrating shuttle tredle sewing machine. It hasn't been used for decades. I have it threaded (bobbin & needle) but it won't stitch. It doesn't seem to be picking up the bobbin thread.


Have you cleaned the bobbin area? The thread tension?
Any machine that has set for more than a few years will need a full service and cleaning; they just gum up.

Where do i get a free manual for a white sewing machine 1866 near Jackson, Mi


Hi! Strange as it may seem you can find free manuals for 19th century White brand sewing machines via the Singer website.

Look under Singer's "Support and Resouces" then select "Instruction manuals" , or follow this link: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals

On the Instructions Manual page you'll see it says "Find Your Manual - Step 1, Step 2 etc etc" and under that there's a search box that says "Model Number"

Into this search box just type "w"
(don't type "white", because that doesn't work)

You'll be taken to a near incomprehensible results page and unfortunately the method to finding the manual you need is a case of clicking and opening the PDF manuals.

However may I suggest a couple that may be of use:
"W7treadle"
- this is a manual of White treadle with a "boat" style bobbin shuttle

"WRotary"
- this is a manual of White treadle with a "rotary" style bobbin shuttle

Good luck, and I hope you find what you need :)
Kind regards
Kura

How to thread the bobbin on a singer simple sewing machine


Drop-in bobbin: Note: thread must change direction when entering bobbin shuttle notch. Usually bobbin will turn counter-clockwise when threaded properly.

1. hold bobbin so that the tail of thread is facing to left.
2. drop bobbin into bobbin shuttle.
3. pull thread toward you.
4. guide thread into notch and pull to left so that slot engages thread.
5. pull thread diagonally across shuttle toward back of machine.
6. draw bobbin thread up through needle plate with threaded needle.
