    Hint for those of us with older eyes and vintage machines: my 99 threads left to right and the light on her isn't much help. I hold the bendable light in the harp area and shine the light toward the needle. The eye really shows up and makes it easier to thread. Hope this helps someone else.

    I have learned to use my needle threader. I was having operator problems. After a lot a practice, I'm fine.
