Sometimes I'm so stupid I amaze myself.  After spending 90 minutes, again, getting the thread path correct on my Singer 12, I realized that all I need to do for the next time is cut off the thread at the spool and leave the machine threaded.

With several old machines, even with a manual, sometimes there are bits and pieces not spoken of in the manual that are necessary.  I couldn't get the thread to stay inbetween the tension disks.  What the manual didn't explain is that you have to give the thread a slight tug to set it into the disks.

By leaving the machine threaded, I also don't have to locate the manual or the page of instructions.  Simple.  Duh. IMG_1088.jpg

Yeah, more than once I have whipped the thread out of the machine or the bobbin out of a shuttle.....and THEN realized that I don't actually know how to re-do it...
