Default Mercury Dial O Matic

Please help. I got this machine gifted to me with no manual. I am not sure how to thread it.

As I responded to your post at Mercury Electric Dial-O-Matic, picture heavy

Unfortunately the OP that has this machine has not been on QB for over five years.

There is a Morse and an Admiral that have this stitch length regulator, but the upper tension is in a different position than the Mercury....

edit: The 15-91 manual is just a more detailed manual. There are several differences in your machine and the 15-91, but the feet still do the same thing.
I hadn't thought about the attachments is what you meant by the parts. You cannot thread your machine like in the 15-91 manual but using the attachments would be the same. As I said, use the ismacs manual for the threading.
