    Can’t seem to find a workshop or adjustors manual for the 148 or 158 series Kenmores from the 70’s era….
    Not sure if there ever was one.
    Also an adjusters manual for the Singer 319 would be interesting.
    Cheers

    Hi Bob,
    I am new to vintage SM restoration. Recently I tried to take out a stuck screw from the needle bar. I finished up breaking the link immediately above the needle bar screw. I wondered if the link could be welded or repaired somehow?

    Hey Bob, your videos have spared me a few headaches. Thanks. Do you have service manuals for 15-30 and 115? Yes, I found a rotary hook 115! It even had a bobbin and case! These two machines are VERY similar, but you can’t fault me for asking for both service/adjuster’s manuals. Thanks!

    Hi Bob I really need a service manual for an industrial consew 227 can’t find it just the operation and parts manual. I need one for the consew 206rb also. Thanks so much.

  5. Pablo Sors

    Hello Bob, I´m Pablo from Argentina ! I do have trouble with my new-to-me 127, it doesn´t make the lock of the stitch. I will try your tips but I have to ask: does this machine use the same regular needles the actual machines uses? Thank you in advance

  6. Elaine Mooty

    Bob, I have been chastised and embarrassed in a FB group, vintage sewing machine resource group, for describing my 201-3 manufactured in Kilbowie issued in 1953 as “201K-3”. Mike Williams says that’s wrong. Please help me understand the correct way to print the model I have. Does 201-3 say it’s made in Kilbowie because all 3’s were made in Kilbowie??? My machine says Made in Great Britain on the tower holding the hand wheel. It has a belted motor and its light is mounted on the back. Its serial number is EJ 125515.

    1. Bob Post author

      Hi Elaine – If your 210-3 says “Made in Great Britain”, it was indeed made in Kilbowie and is a 201K3. Technically, the Kilbowie made machines didn’t use a dash in the model number. Whether the dash included or not really doesn’t matter to those who understand the various flavors of 201s; the -1 is a treadle, the -2 a potted motor, the -3 a belted motor, and the -4 a hand crank. If the inclusion or exclusion of a dash gives someone a heart attack, consider it their problem and don’t worry about what they say.

    Hi Bob,
    I really need your help. I have a singer 285 j. I do not have a manual. I would like to know how to oil or Grease the motor. I don’t see any holes. Also I do not know how to get out the bobbin case. I really like this little green mean sewing machine. Also what size belt does it need?

    I am gifting a Singer Creative Touch 1030 to my mom for Christmas. This was her favorite machine. I found one at goodwill, but it has a lot of old grease in various places. Looking for a service manual to get her smooth again.
