Instructions for Using and Adjusting Singer B. A. K. Electric Motors with Knee Control for Family Sewing Machines
Form K5958

Antique / vintage instruction manual for use with Singer sewing machines
Undated but I am guessing that it probably dates from the 1920s or thereabouts (it could be slightly earlier as the first electric sewing machine motors were developed by Singer in 1889)
Printed in Great Britain by The Singer Manufacturing Co.

Small format booklet - green cloth covers - 20 pages - illustrated with black and white photos

Dimensions: approx. 3.25" x 5.25" (approx. 8.5cm x 13.5cm)

Provides detailed instructions for the use of Singer sewing machine motors (and knee control devices). Also the 'Singerlight' attachment. The motor appears to have been a separate device which was used as a means of adapting manual sewing machines for use with electricity (prior to the days of electric sewing machines with integrated motors and lights)

In reasonably good condition. The booklet is creased and several pages have discolouration/staining. However, the binding is tight and there are no tears or annotations. The staples have started to rust slightly but are still doing their work

Cotton reels for display only (not included in purchase)
