The Excelsior sewing machine was introduced ca 1860s.

Finding the exact manual for this machine will require downloading sites that specialize in manuals for machines.

My computer cannot handle all these downloads. I will leave that up to you.

First try this sewing machine expert for advice for the best path to take. He may have one himself.
