Default Need help locating a manuel

I have just recently bought a Zig Zag model 408S and I can not find a manual for it anywhere. It still works great but I have no clue as to how to thread the machine. Any help would be great.

Perhaps mentioning a brand would be helpful to us.

It's most likely a Japanese clone which were badged under different names.
See if these might help:

Here's a manual to a universal Japanese clone:

Also PM Macybaby -- she has a sewing machine collection and might be able to help.

Since that is a badged machine that was probably sold under a hundred different names, search the manual sites by picture rather than the name.
