A few manuals

It's one of those things that bothers me: People sell downloads of sewing machine manuals, yet they don't own the copyright. You might think it's still good value  and convenient for you to have a printable copy but it annoys the hell out of me. If you didn't write it, you shouldn't be making money from it.

Here are two sewing machine manuals I Googled and found really difficult to locate. These are both scanned manuals that I scanned myself.
Please don't attempt to sell it. Click the link, the pictures are just pictures.

  1. Thanks Mike, The more I look at the Necchi, the happier I am ;) I do appreciate all your work on cleaning & servicing her and am looking forward to some wonderful creations. If the manual is easily at hand, would it be possible to send an electronic copy (to save photocopying the original ;) )? Nic

  3. Thankyou Mike... would you believe that these are the exact manuals I have been searching for, and you've got them here in one very convenient place! My Necchi was put out on the side of the road for the Council cleanup (perfect condition with service record still inside) and the Pinnock I bought at a garage sale for $5 (again perfect condition). These two machines have outlast their modern day counterparts, a Janome that gave me no end of grief! Thank you again.
