That certainly is an interesting reference. I'm at a loss as to which model machine was used per the illustrations. That's a tiny little balance wheel!

Did a quick Google search for "Singer B.U.K. Electric Motor" and found https://www.manualslib.com/manual/641376/Singer-Buk-Electric-Motor.html#product-BUK%20Electric%20Motor and at http://bygone.dundeecity.gov.uk/bygone-news/october-1929/index.html from Oct 1929 it says "Nothing to go wrong - always under perfect control - a Singer B.U.K. Motor can, later on, be fitted to the machine you buy now."

Janey- thanks so much for the PDF link - just what I was looking for.  On my google search I was not comprehensive and now when I check your link did come up but down the list and I didn't explore further.    This website looks great for lots of manual references.

What do the B.U.K. initials stand for?

I was wondering this as well and couldn't find andyinfo in the manual.  To note- there are other similar manuals you will find if you do a search - such as Singer B.R.K Electric Motors or B.A.K.  I am thinking these are different series of motors or motor types?

According to https://www.singersewinginfo.co.uk/motors/ the first two letters are the motor frame type or style, and the last is the manufacturing or assembly plant. 'K' suffix being Kilbowie, Scotland; for example. They have a useful, but not complete chart with pictures at the link.

Thanks for passing along the resource and solving the mystery!  That UK site has really lots of good info and I must remember to use it.
