    I found a close up of the tension.

    You unscrew it to loosen it and there is a slit on the side you place the tread between there
    here is the pic

    Also I looked but I am unable to find the manual for yours but here is an inline manual for mine and you may be able to figure it out from this

    I dont know how the tension works maybe see if it can be unscrewed to loosen and then a way to tread it

    If you have not found this here a a web site with a picture

    Mine is the boye shuttle number 7 and I think that should be yours as well but I am not sure. When I have a bit more time I can look to see what the shuttle and needle takes


    Here is my take on it
    50$ is good for it. I love my domestic never have problems always a great stitch.

    If you are looking to sew on it everyday and are not looking to add to a "collection" then I would say pass on it. The shuttle can be hard to find and I have paid 15$ for 10 needles (sometimes I have seen them for more)
    So it wouldn't be good to be sewing all the time on it.

    If you just want it for sometimes sewing and more of a conversation piece then I think its okay you could possibly do a better deal but $50 is not bad.
