    Need an owners manual for a Dial 'n Sew Mdl 516 or similar

    I'd like to put an owners manual with it.


    Dial 'n Sew Mdl 516 made by KOYO in the mid 70s.

    If anyone has one of these manuals, or a manual for another badged machine that has these controls, I'll reimburse your postage if you do.

    Or if you know where I can find a free one to download I'd appreciate it.

    I've still got a couple places to check but so far I've struck out.

    I was just wondering if you had any luck locating a manual? I too have a Koyo Dial 'n Sew 516 and am looking for a manual.

    Thank you.

    Nope, never found a manual. Sometime after this was posted I sold the machine.

    Joe,

    Somewhere among my Aunt's belongings is a Dial 'N Sew (don't know what model) and I don't know whether there's a manual. All I know is that that sucker weighs a ton! I'm not even sure where the machine is right now. I'll see if I can find it! I don't get much done these days -- if I can work a full week, I'm happy. I will definitely try to find the machine!

    This is an older thread, but I just bought a very similar machine. I don't know what Dial N Sew model it is, but the Koyo model number is 1710. Does anyone know where a manual can be found? I'm giving this to a friend and I'd like to include a manual.

    I have a dial and sew machine somewhere and yes it needs a manual...
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    I also have a Dial and Sew without a manual. I'm seeing a pattern here.

    Yep!! I'm another one missing the manual. Just got mine yesterday and also missing the bobbin case but Joe gave me the info for that already. You would think someone has a manual sitting around somewhere. Strange!

    I never did find manuals for either of the ones I had. They've both been rehomed and I've quit looking.

    I love the old iron and wood machines. They're solid and reliable.
