I found a place to download a 2468 manual for $10 at https://www.tias.com/cgi-bin/rv.fcgi?itemKey=3923291409

A free manual for the 1145 can be found at https://www.singer.com/sites/default...e-s-1145-x.pdf which looks very similar to the 2468 as far as the threading is concerned. I will enlarge pdf files on my computer to better be able to see what I need to.

Hello Bobby... I just acquired an Elgin 2468... would you be willing to share where you ordered your parts from? I am in US and am having a hard time finding anything for this machine. Thank you. Arianna

Welcome Arianna. Bobby hasn't been on for a few months. What kind of parts are you looking for?

We like pictures. In order to post pictures on Quilting Board, you will probably need to reduce or compress the picture to a file size that is smaller than 2MB. How to post images can be found at https://www.quiltingboard.com/attach...020-01-17-.pdf
Don't forget to scroll over to the far right to find and click on the "Upload" button.

The Elgin 2468 is the same as the White 2468. That might help.
