    Do you have your needle in the right way? Are you using the right needle?

    make sure you can using the right bobbin, i've found that the vintage singers are very fussy about the bobbin

    I would try threading right to left - that's what my FW needs. As others have said, make sure it's the correct bobbin. And make sure there aren't any little bits of thread stuck in the bobbin case. They can be really pesky and create all kinds of strange issues.
