USE ONLY 206X13 NEEDLES FOR THIS MACHINE.
1. From the spool pull the thread through the thread guide at the top. Then anchor the thread against the machine with your left hand and pull
2. the thread down and around through the tension discs. There are three (it accepts double needle) it doesn't matter between which two. KEEPING pressure on the thread yank/tug/jerk the thread
3.Up under the check spring. This check spring is open so be sure the thread gets caught under the spring. I have two number 3s in the photo. Sorry..
4. Then back under the thread guide
5 Through the take up lever. The take up lever should be in its highest position ideally.
