    I was having problems it seems that it was operator problems not the threader itself. It does take practice.

    Love my automatic threader on my QE 440. Have had it about a month and it is a little tricky at first but once you get the hang of it your eyes will thank you for it.

    What Pennylane said: just takes a little getting used to and you will love it.

I'm sure you can get it.....There is also a great magnifier lens attachment that is available for the 440. It comes with 3 different power lenses.....and attaches to the machine.....might be a good investment....you don't want to get stuck at night trying to finish a project and you suddenly can't get the needle threader to cooperate with your fingers! Good Luck!
    Love, love, love my magnifiers!
