I recently aquired an old Kenmore 10 Portable Sewing Machine - Model #158-1262180 - Series LR 62482. There is no bobbin in the machine, nor any manual - I am unable to thread and my bobbins from my other machines do not work. Can you help with anything? Thanks

Most put the bobbin up top on a post, run the thread from the spool to the bobbin, and then rotate the bobbin by pressing it against a rubber covered wheel while running the sewing machine in normal 'forward' direction.
I have a Kenmore as well ,I hope that this will work for you ,too bad that I don't live close to you otherwise I would give a hand. This is the way I fill the bobbin on mine.
Mine is located on the top right ,I put the thread into the bobbin hole leaving a small piece of thread hanging for me to hold when I begin the winding, I pull the wheele out to stop the needle from moving while winding, when I am done just push it back in .I run the thread from the spool into the top left it looks like a U turn with a screw go around that without winding just pull it into the bobbin hole. press the foot control and it will begin winding .
