Singer 127 and 128 Instruction Booklet

This Singer Instruction Manual was recreated from a carefully scanned, digitally repaired and reconstructed images and text from an original instructional booklet first printed in 1933. It is shown here with a Singer 128K hand crank manufactured in 1951.

The Singer 127 and 128 class are improved versions of the Singer 27 and 28, the main difference being that the tension on the 27 and 28 had a manual release, whereas the 127 and 128 class have an internal pin which releases the tension when the presser foot is raised. Please contact me if you need help identifying your machine

The instructional text is the same as for the original documents and does reference charmingly obsolete terms and materials but is also very clear and easy to follow.

If you don't need to know about the attachments,
this just covers the important stuff and I gave it a fresh cover design

No copyright is to be inferred by this reproduction, I only produced it to assist fellow vintage sewing machine enthusiasts
and seek only to be compensated a little for the time spent digitally reconstructing and the expense of printing.
