Tip for today: Where to find Free PDF manuals for White sewing machines and Overlockers/Sergers old and new...
Strange as it may seem, there are free White sewing machine and overlocker/serger manuals via the Singer website. The manuals include many 20th century and even a few 19th century models too, (which was good news for me when I bought a 1906 treadle. pictured above)
To find the manual you need, look under Singer's "Support and Resources" then select "Instruction manuals" , or follow this link.
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,
A) if you have a 20th century model, try doing a find via Ctrl-F and enter in your machine's model number.
B) if you have a 19th century machine, unfortunately the method to finding the manual you need is a case of clicking and opening the PDFs.
However may I suggest a couple that may be of use:
- this is a manual of a White treadle with a boat style bobbin shuttle
- this is a manual of a White treadle with a rotary style bobbin shuttle
Good luck, and I hope you find what you need :)
