Maybe you can help me.  I own 3 Wilcox & Gibbs millinery machines, and I need the instructions manuals.  Is it possible that you will share those instructions with me?  Thank you in advance for a response.

Hello Ms. Queen,

There was nothing that came with mine, I won them off of e-bay, they were very dirty and in much need of a tune up, my husband took care of all that for me and put the motor and leather belt on them.  Through much prayer, God led me to this website and she is the only one who helped.  After she did and from her instructions, I made the hat that you see on the lower left corner pic.  Hope this helps.  http://hatstruck.blogspot.com/2011/01/how-to-sew-millinery-straw-br...
