Default Downloading Manual for my National Sewing Machine ,treadle antique

I am not able to find any manuals to purchase or download for my treadle sewing machine by National Machine Co. I would appreciate any suggestions. Later I plan to spread out a quilt top my grandmother hand stitched over a hundred years ago, its the tulip pattern. I don't know why she did not quilt it..she certainly quilted many many more throughout her sewing years.

You may be out of luck finding a manual for this machine. I had to learn how to use it by trial and error.

Thank you, Joe for pictures. The nose plate is like my New National, but the leaf tension is a bit different.

I found mine on ebay, the seller was mrghent

https://www.ebay.com/usr/mrghent?ul_noapp=true

And I emailed the pictures of the shuttle from this post

https://www.quiltingboard.com/vintag...s-t309297.html

so the seller had the exact measurements.
