Shipping is FREE when you purchase printed manuals, needles, etc. and they are sent to a U.S.A. address. Our printed items are enlarged to print on the full printable area of the page. They are much easier to read for those of us who have mature eye sight and, the illustrations are clearer too. Our printed manuals are coil bound, have protective plastic covers and they lay flat so they are easier for you to refer to. If you click on the little image to the left of the itemís description, a details page for that item will open. There are usually several more images from that manual on the details page and those images should enlarge, if you click on them.
A PDF / DOWNLOAD is an electronic file that is sent from our server to your computer. Nothing will be mailed to you when you order the down-loadable version of the manual, even though there is shipping information in the order form which you must fill in and you will automatically receive a shipped notice VIA email. Don't pay any attention to them. They are simply built in responses from the ordering system because we sell many items that do get shipped.All payments must me made in U.S.A. funds. If you are ordering a download and a physical item, you will need to make separate orders for the items, IF YOU ARE PAYING FOR IT WITH A CREDIT CARD. When you have paid for your download, stay right where you are when your payment is completed and, then click on the links that come up to return to Relics and receive your download.
Downloads and printed manuals are separate items in our site. So, please read the itemís description carefully to make sure that you are ordering the correct version of it and the right item. NOTE: International customers can NOT pay for their purchase with a check or a money order. However, they can use a credit card or pay for their purchase at PayPal, but only in U.S.A. funds. If you don't see what you are looking for, in the site, or the downloadable version of the item you want hasn't been entered in the site yet, email me and request it. If you have questions or need assistance, email me, don't call. Thank you, Linda at Relics
Authorized reproduction of the users / instruction manual for a Singer model 12, also known as the New Family sewing machine. It has a transverse shuttle which means that the bobbin and shuttle travel in a straight line from left to right and right to left or in other words, parallel to the user. It has basic user information, oiling and attachments details as well as some troubleshooting information. It will be found in a treadle base or as a hand cranked sewing machine. This manual is dated 1871 and it is so old that they they did not use illustrations but words to instruct the user. It is a bit rough but it is complete except for very small missing fragments and reproduces nicely.
