Threading an old sewing machine
To put on an old sewing machine, nothing could be simpler. Place the spool of thread on top of the machine, then immediately place the thread in the thread guide. Go down between the two discs of the tension block, then reassemble the thread to pass it behind the actu: 739825 hook and reassemble it in the tensioner. Lower the thread into the two lower thread guides, then pass it through the eye of the needle, being careful not to tie a knot. Then place the bobbin in the slot, and unwind counterclockwise. Take the top thread, and turn the steering wheel towards you to recover the loop.
Threading a modern sewing machine
There are no big differences between old and modern machines when it comes to threading. The main one remains the tension block which has become invisible on modern machines. In addition, modern sewing machines put numerous arrows to indicate which direction to place the thread. If the gestures are the same, work is simplified on the new machines.
