Default Threading Diagram for Damascus Grand Rotary (Eldredge A??)

I've been googling, and not finding a threading diagram, and I know that although it stitches loosely, I'm not threaded right. Any help, I tried ISMAC but didn't find it there. $10 special from GW. I'm impressed with the construction details!

sorry for the phone photos, I'll do better later...

Thanks so much.
BTW I had to fashion a teeny little screw for the bobbin case from a #2-56 FHD, shorten it a bunch and reduce the size of the head a bunch and reslot it. But it worked! YAY!

That's what I thought - same as my Two Spool. Having the thread cross is NOT what one expects when threading a machine.

Looking forward to seeing the Eldredge E when it arrives. I've got an Eldredge B in the mail right now too.

Have you had any luck dating your Damascus Grand? My sister has my Grandma's Damascus Grand treadle. I tried the Yahoo group but no help or I just don't know how to use that group. The serial # is A274245. Your decals are so elegant.
