Singer 15K26 & Attachments 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 1908 and supplied with a Singer 15K26 of that era (with "V" prefix to serial No.) but is a suitable manual for most early Singer 15 class models as well as many other early era central bobbin oscillating hook machines (please contact me if you are unsure).

Read about other models in the Singer 15 class on this page

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.

This 28 page reproduction booklet (32 pages including cover) is A5 size (the original was 135mm×208mm)

I also have a short (16 page) version excluding the attachments

Singer do have PDF manuals for 15 class models which can be downloaded from their site for free, but the resolution is low to reduce the file size and Singer have modernised the font, text and layout of their PDF manuals thus losing some of the antiquarian charm of the original instruction book. I am happy to direct you to the location of the free PDF if you are not able to find it on your own.

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.
