    what model Kenmore is that? I might have an actual manual. I have a stack of about 75 manuals that we found in a box from this estate. I'll be happy and see if I have one.

    There are 2 spool pins so you can use 2 spools of thread when using a double needle.

    I have a bunch of Kenmore machines with no manuals - I don't know without going and looking to know what numbers. I can't seem to make the Sears website give me the right manuals. I would be happy just knowing what some of the knobs are suppose to do.

    I'll go through and pull out the kenmore ones and see what I have, and if you want me to try and scan any of them in I will. They're all stuff we are selling from that estate I just haven't gotten around to listing them on ebay yet.

    Jennb, It is a Kenmore 1218.
    Path 49, This machine can't do a double needle. The needle is shifted all of the way to the left as you look at it when doing a straight stitch and there is not a L-R-Center setting for it, so a double needle would hit the foot. When you do a ZZ on it the needle stays to the left and swings to the right for the ZZ. Strange setup, I know. I still don't know why iot would have two spool pins on it though. I assumed it could do a double needle too until I saw how it went from Straight to ZZ.

    I'll bet it can use these http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kenmore-Sewi...item2ec1331147 Notice that the shaft is over the left needle instead of centered.

    I used to have a Kenmore that had that left needle thing...I never could get used to it! Anyway, this is the double needle that came with it new.
