I'm looking for an owner's manual for a Younker's badged sewing machine model W-40 and was wondering who the manufacturer was.
I happened across your user name again as I was reviewing some of my older posts. From there I read quite a few of your replies and answers to post usually asking for help. I have concluded that you are doing a great service to many ThriftyFun members. On their behalf, I thank you.
The Younker's sewing machines appear to have been (and apparently still are) by New Home (Janome) - try either site for manuals.

Yea for Sandi! Another thing you might try is steaming open the stuck pages. Either do a search engine run ('steaming open stuck pages') or:
Boil a large pot of water, wear gloves or use BBQ tongs to hold the stuck pages over the steaming pot - once all the pages are unstuck, blot dry with paper towels and lay a piece of waxed paper between the pages until dry.
I have the N-250-3 but lost the Manual! Ur version does exist! I recognize your manual with both models in the instruction book. Mine has GOT to be in the house somewhere- but I remember it's the same as the one you have that's stuck together. If I find it (which is how I found this site-looking for the manual) I'll be back and will scan and notify you here and send to you. I love my machine. Got it @ 1970 or so.
The bobbin holder fell out and I can't repair it. Is there a free PDF manual for the Nelco 4-A?

There isn't a free one online, sorry to say. You can purchase one from several sites (Google using the name and model number followed by sewing machine manual) for under $15USD.
There are also a few YouTube videos on using the machine, one of those might have a section on the bobbin case system that will help you.
I need information about an old "Good Housekeeper" or "Good Housekeeping" sewing machine. I am having trouble threading it. It is model 712-B.
