    Hi Dandybob,

    If you have the manual for the singer 132k6, I would me interested in!

    I bought one few months ago and I think it will need some adjustment and some parts because I'm not able to sew correctly.

Make sure that the thread is under the tension spring then thread it throgh the hole in the spoolcase,push the spoolcase retainer over to hold it in then turn the balance wheel towards you to pick up the thread through the hole in the needle plate, pull both threads back and sew away. I can supply a manual for this machine if you want one.

Can you tell me when the 132K6 was made? I have a very old industrial one that does not even turn that I found on a junk heap and put lots of oil and such but did not work. It does say Singer.

Unless the machine is rusted, liquid Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube and heat from a handheld hairdryer (or setting in the hot sun) will most likely loosen things.

You may find better results, and actually the part you need not on Fixya, but somewhere that sells these parts, Singer, Amazon, Craigslist, Kijiji?
