    Deplaylady -

    Thank you so much! I thought I had scoured the Singer site, and all the manuals I found on other sites were for purchase. I thought there was surely a freebie out there and I hated to pay $12 or $15 for one.

    Your machine is in great shape. Mine looks hardly used also. I thought it was unusual that such an old machine was so pristine, but hopefully I'll break it in soon. I haven't posted pictures yet; I need to do that.

    Thanks again!

    Darren

    Here is a Singer 185K that I converted to hand crank a while back. We called it “Pistachio” because that’s the name of the paint color that I used to repaint the crank. It’s not an exact match, but was better than the original black.

    We took it to a TOGA to play with it, and it ended up going home with another lady.

    CD in Oklahoma
