Prepared JANUARY 2002

These pages have been produced from original manuals some of which were in poor condition and we have where necessary used computer enhancement to help make them readable.

For further information on a particular model click on the heading.


LETTER "S" CLASS,

FAMILY (No. 1) and MEDIUM (No. 2),

Bradbury and Co used the same basic manual for the Letter'S', Family (No. 1), Medium (No. 2) and Family High Arm transverse shuttle machine. There were new titles and minor changes to the text but the basic diagrams and instructions remained the same, even when the High Arm Transverse Shuttle machine was introduced the Company did not bother to change the cover illustration from a fiddle bed machine.
The principle exception to this was the tension adjustment, on the fiddlebase models the tension is regulated by a screw on the face plate above the tension discs.
