Diana Dress Form question

Hi, new to the group, not new to sewing, new to owning a dress form.
I purchased this form, it is a plus sizable form, adjusts in every
imaginable direction, including the neck! but it did not come with a manual
or instructions on HOW to set it or what exactly each dial does.
Is there any way I can get some information on it? I have googled but either
I am not looking right or I am not understanding what I am reading. I
haven't garment sewed in quite some time, but with my new toy, I am renewing
my interest a bit.
Oh, and I don't know what they are worth, but I paid $10 for mine, like new
only missing the "how to use it" part. And at the moment, that is the most
vital part! So it was a great score I am sure, as soon as I learn how to set
the sucker up for my shape.

why not contact the seller and see if he/she will photocopy or scan the manual for you for a fee?

The forms are made in Ashford, here in Kent. I'm going to ring them and see what they can do for us. But it's only 8:20 am here, and the office won't be awake until nine. :)

OK, here's what I got for you.
Best thing to do according to the lady at Adjustoform is contact the US distributors and get the leaflet through them:
Prym Consumer USA PO Box 5028 Spartanburgh South Carolina 29304
Telephone (001) 864 5765 050
You could email: snipped-for-privacy@prym-consumer-usa.com
My very helpful lady said Pauma Deaton was a very helpful person and should be able to send what you need.
Adjustoform's own web site is here:

Thank you for your reply. That one that is for sale is identical to the one I got, but at a MUCH better price mind you ;-)
Are these things really worth the money and space to own??

I got a free one - given by a pal who outgrew it! ;)
How *can* you ask??? I have FOUR of them! And I want a teen sized one and the bloke to round off my 'family'. I take them off the stand and bag them up and store them in the loft when not in use. :)
I find them almost essential for customer sewing and very useful fr myself. No substitute for a proper fitting, but you can take a lot of the guess-work out of things. :)

Sorry to have to inform you I was in the same situation and contacted Singer UK and they wouldn't or couldn't help me.

That's because they only sell them: they are made by Adjustoform. See other post for contact details here and in the USA... :)
