    Thank you Vintagemotif. Now I know how to thread it. Do you know what size is the bobbin or where can I get them. I have no idea what my Mother-in-law did with the bobbins she has long passed so can't ask her.

    Glenn, Monica is right that machine would thread a lot like the Two Spools. It would start with that larger button looking thing on top of the head (there should be a slot in there for the thread to guide through), then a full 360 degrees around the tension, then down to the long staple looking thread guide (there should be a check spring in that thread guide), up to the take up lever thread guide (right to left when facing the front of the machine), back down to the thread guide just above the needle (the thread kind of crosses), then through the needle. I have a New Home that threads the same way and Kathie on here has as old machine (I can't remember what it is) that threads the same way. Give it a try - what the heck! That is a really neat looking machine!

    Thank you Weedwoman, This is great now just to find a bobbin for the thing. I know my mother-in-law had the bobbins and attachments but have no idea where they are. I do have the bobbin case. They could be with the wife's twin brother and he most likely three the bobbins away. Skip

    Glenn I'll keep looking - there might be bobbins somewhere too.

    Miriam, would you sell me the bobbin case for the MW? Mine is missing and I'll need to find bobbins also. Thanks.
