Default Adler 187 manual?

This belonged to my great aunt. My mom has it now. I am wondering if it might actually work better than the current machine she is using, but she does not know how to thread it. My dad searched the Internet for a manual, but could not find one that he could tell would be in English (as opposed to German) and also got discouraged because the prices on manuals alone were about the same as listings that included the machines!

I searched and only found a listing for a 186 Manuel, and also no indication whethere that would be in English. I don't know if it would be worth the $10.

Does anyone have info to share? Would the 186 manual be useful?

Is it possible to post pics of the back, front and face plate side straight on? From what I can see it appears that the spool pin may be missing. Can't help you so far with your Adler, but all machines thread pretty much alike.

There are the other pictures I have. I am fairly sure the spool pin is one of the items in a box with different presser feet and other parts. I think it is off to allow the machine to swing down into the cabinet. Also my mom says there was a "tea tray" that attached to the top, but got broken. Maybe they took the spool pin off when attaching that tray to the top. I am having a hard time imagining the tea tray.

Oh, I asked some more questions. The tea tray is just something that sat on the cabinet, which has wheels and a handle like a tea cart.

Very nice machine! I have a Belvedere Adler, but it is a different model. Adler's are wonderful machines!

Other views. It has one spool holder but I think it should have 2.
