There was a post maybe early this year, 2012 or end of 2011 where the poster had links to many of the older sm manuals. I tried the search engine for sewing machine manuals but came up empty handed. Does anyone remember that post & help me find it? ............

II would like to do something nice for my friend for Christmas.... she has an older ...approx 40 or 45 yrs old she said ... Neechi Alcoa sm & has long ago lost the manual. She has returned to sewing & I thought maybe if I could find a manual & get it for her along with some much needed new sm needles, oil etc............ you get the picture.......... maybe a nice & well used gift for her this year. .........Any other ideas of where to find the manual etc?

So anyone remember or find this post ??? .......... I cannot remember the original poster either....
Thanks so much.

Well in a surprise ...Guess what showed up in my friend's pile of fabric & ribbon stashes?!! Yup the manual for her Alco! On the front it says The Queen ... so that must have been a name for it when first manfactured. .... I just thought I would update the turn of events here. ......... I guess you never know what those stashes are hiding! ....

So now I have to think of something else for her for Christmas. I have thought of an assortment of heavier needles. Can you believe this sm takes up to a size 21 according to the manual! Wow!
