    Mine is folding. Is there a metal piece that comes out of the front of the machine? If so, the folding control attaches to it by a screw.
    Thanks!!!

    First, I'd find an original bobbin, it seems some of the old machines like old bobbins. Second what kind of needle are you using? I'd use a Schmetz Sharp 80 or 70 not something larger. Are you sure you threaded in right to left and inserted the needle all the way up with the flat side to the left?

    Also, did you take the bobbin slide plate off and make sure there is no thread caught in there. You need to look from the top side and take the cover off the bottom and look from the bottom too. There may be a little thread wound up around the hook/race thing that is causing the skipped stitches.

    Sometimes with my machines, all that is needed is for the machine to be oiled. Try that too, couldn't hurt. :)

    Miz Johnny do you know where I can get a threading diagram for my New Home T No 3 machine? Or better yet, do you have something like the T No 3 that you can thread and post a picture of that funny face plate with the long wire that runs all the way down the front?

    Nancy
    I have a National with the strange face plate; it has a TV on top of it right now, but I will get to it as soon as I can and see if I can remember how to thread it. If not, I will find someone who can.

    buslady, Billy should have some real Singer ones available. If not, I got mine from April1930s.com
    She specializes in FWs, but sells for 301s, too.
