    Kingston heavy duty sewing machine

    My husband and I bought a Kingston heavy duty sewing machine at a garage sale. It has the number 1621, Made in Japan. Motor model 195233-G-RP. The owner said her husband used it to sew tents, backpacks.
    The needle is threaded from the side rather than the front.
    We would like to find a manual or some type of directions as how to thread the machine properly.
    Would appreciate any help.

    Kingston, Brother, Universal, Atlas, Presicion, others: You can go here http://www.tias.com/173/PictPage/3923555339.html and look for a manual that appears to match your machine. Kingston is Japanese-made and that's why you were asked to post a picture: The same machine might have been sold under several different nameplates.


    Also look through this thread where we are posting pics. I have an Singer model 15 clone Kingston. But I don't have a manual. I just oil everything that moves.

    Photos of the machine might help. Friend of mine worked in a garment factory. They might know with pics.

    There are Kingston Japanese 15 clones, too:
    Will the REAL 15 clone please stand up

    Will have my son help me post a picture whenever he is back this way. He's a trucker so never know exactly when that will be.
