bobbin thread

I have read 3 pages from a couple searches. I can't find the answer I need. My bobbin ran out on my tacsew t111-xxx. I wound up the bobbin on bobbin winder, but I can't figure out how to route the thread in the bobbin holder. Thanks to Horvath for his informative posts on the Tacsew. And a big shout to Dan, you seem to have many of peoples answers and are willing to share. I am a visual learner, so if I may ask for pics, that would be great.

You don't have to shout, I can hear you just fine. Thanks for the compliment.

O.K., here's the deal. My machines all load their bobbins from the top and from the right of the needle. This is called a vertical hook, and the bobbin case is held in place and does not come out of the machine, it is held in place.

Your machine has a horizontal hook, and loads from the left of the needle, and has a case covering the bobbin. Your bobbin case comes out of the machine to load the new bobbin by lifting the little spring loaded lever-latch on the top of the case. The bobbin is installed into the bobbin case the same way as mine, with the thread coming off the bobbin on the top and towards the left, but since you are loading it from the back side of the case, your thread will come off the top and to the right.

The bobbin thread has to go down through the groove in the bobbin case and back to the left under the little piece of spring steel on the bobbin case, which is the bobbin tension. Once your bobbin thread is installed in its case, you put the whole assembly back into the machine. That little lever-latch on the top of the bobbin case that is spring loaded has to be held up as you install the bobbin and bobbin case assembly back into the hook of your sewing machine. When the bobbin case, along with the bobbin, is in the right position, release the lever and the assembly is held in place in the hook. You are then ready to sew. The bobbin thread will be picked up by the top thread. This is a bobbin out of an old home machine, so it doesn't match yours exactly, but you should get the idea.

Here are some pictures:

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.

Thanks Dan, I pulled the thread in the slot and I just need to get it under the spring. I'll figure it out. Thanks again for the help. I'll post up a pic of my first seat when I'm done.
