Default Kenmore 117.740, 840 and 841 owners - I have the Sears Catalog

I have scans of the Sears catalogs from 1956 and 1957 with the 117.74 and 84 series machines. I'd be happy to share them with you if you want. Send me a pm and I'll send you the scans.

My mom gave me a Kenmore 117.740 sewing machine with cabinet. It's missing a bobbin casing and a manual. I'm having a hard time finding a manual online. Any help or leads would be much appreciated.

I seldom see Kenmoregal post anymore, so she's unlikely to see this post. She, however, is still sewing on her beloved Kenmore. PM her, she might be able to help.

edited to add: This machine was made for Sears by White who had it made by Greitsner (probably misspelled). They were a German company. If Joan can't help you, you can do some research and get the White and Greitsner numbers and probably find the manuals with their names on them. Maybe someone can tell us how to spell Greitsner, too.
