    got a new home NLB for free . pictures later. but the instruction book is stuck together because of water damage. Anyone have ideas of how to unstick them. I have seperated some pages but some are stubborn.

    I would try using a hair blower. Heat works to soften adhesives; might also work to soften the plastic that is sticking the pages together.

    If the hair blower doesn't work, I would try steam from a tea kettle spout.

    If all the hints don't work try googling the name of the sewing machine plus manual and get a new one!

    Holding in over steam, either from a streamer or boiling water. It has worked for me before.

    I have suceeded. I eventually put the book and a bowl of water in the micro and let the whole thing steam. Although holding the pages over steam worked, I got impatient. thus the micro. all but the back cover and last page are apart. thank you for the suggestions. love this board

    NLB is the model listed on the manual. It also says in the description that it is light sewing and round robbin rotary.
    It has a needle in it but says only use the rotary needles CC1221 made for this machine. I'm new at old machines but I think i love them and want them. But will have to wait for another free one.

    Steaming should work best. Prying them apart will only cause the ink to pull from one page to another. If water put them together, water will take them apart.

    I just acquired the same machine but mine is in a cabinet. I did not have a manual with mine but was able to download one from here:

    http://www.ismacs.net/newhome/manuals.html

    The cc1221 needles are the same as 206x13 needles and are available online from various sources.
