SOURCE: i have a Nelco sewing

There should be a screw down by the needle, by the presser foot. Unscrew that button and remove the old needle. To replace that with a new one... there put the top of the needle into the needle hole. There will be a flat side to the needle and a rounded side. The flat side goes in the back. Once you have the needle in its position, tighten the screw to hold it in place. Let me know how it goes and if that fixes it.

I need help putting the bobbin threader back onto a Nelco JA38 sewing machine and the springs are giving me fits. Any help?


Not sure if you are having problems with the bobbin winder or threading the bobbin. This may help:

Nelco JA 38 Sewing Machine Threading Diagram

To avoid awful thread nests under the fabric, be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread.

Interestingly, the bobbin threading instructions (above) show the bobbin loading into the bobbin case so it turns COUNTER-clockwise. This is the opposite of instructions for most machines. You can probably try both, the clockwise or Counter-clockwise,and see if one works better than the other.

Be sure to use fresh, good quality sewing machine oil or Tri-Flow Synthetic Oil on your machine. Open it up, while gently wiggling the handwheel, drop a couple drops of oil every place that metal rubs against metal. Avoid plastic or rubber parts! You may even find little round holes throughout that are oil ports. Be sure to get the area around the needlebar, presser foot lifter, feed dogs, the bobbin area, and all the dial and selector mechanisms.

You can find manuals for your machine online (not free!).

Threading a nelco 5102


Machines generally thread similarly. Just be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread.

I need the manual for a Nelco F600. Do you have it or know where I can get one. I was given a machine but think it has been in storage for a long time! Need to oil and check it out.


A manual for a similar model would be a benefit. Most machines operate and thread the same. Yes, you should definitely clean and lube your machine before trying any sewing. Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube from the hardware store is a good product to use because it does not dry out and turn to glue over time.

FWIW, I inherited a Nelco J28 and it is the toughest machine in my arsenal. I repair horse equipment with it. The stitch quality is not the best, but it certainly sews most anything thrown at it. The only issue I have with it (and it is my issue, not the machine's) is that it has a side-loading bobbin which means the home position of the needle is also on the left instead of the middle. Having always used a centered needle makes using it seem somewhat unnatural. However, your machine appears to have the front-loading bobbin and centered needle.

Do you have experience with a Nelco Sierra 234F Serger? How is the quality of stitching, how easy is it to use and problem free is this machine? Are you still able to get parts for the machine?


As far as I am aware, Nelco hasn't been made for quite a few years--probably since sometime in the 1970's is my guess. I have an old Nelco sewing machine that is a tank of a machine and sews nearly anything I throw at it. But for finer work, I prefer my Bernina--probably because it has more stitch selections, sews a straighter stitch, and I know it better.

If you aren't able to have the machine demonstrated to you and you can test it to your satisfaction, I'd be reluctant (Actually, that goes for any used machine, not just Nelco!) The following may be helpful:

FWIW, I have an old Nelco J-28 that was passed on to me by someone who started quilting with it and advanced on to a career making wonderful creatively designed scenic quilts. It is a basic machine with straight stitch and a few zig-zag stitches. It's a tough metal mechanical machine and has been used to repair horse equipment (fly masks, etc.) and upholstery. The only thing that is perplexing to me is that it is a left needle position machine, ie the bobbin loads on the left side, the needle faces the left side, and the needle home position is on the left side and swings from the left to the right. All my other machines are center needle position so it takes some adjustment whenever switching to the Nelco--but that is a personal thing and in no way reflects on the machine and its usability. The good thing--since it is a mechanical machine, it can be maintained with frequent oiling using fresh good quality sewing machine oil and regular cleaning.

The best advice ever provided--Always Raise the presser foot when threading the upper thread and make sure the machine is threaded correctly.

Finding a free/cheap user's manual for a Nelco j-a38 vintage sewing machine!


You can look through this information:

nelco ja38 instruction manual Google Search

It's an older mechanical machine, but they are real workhorses. Just keep it clean and oiled (only fresh, good quality sewing machine oil or liquid Tri-Flow Synthetic Oil)--probably about every 6 months. Apply a couple of drops of oil every place metal rubs on metal. NO oil on belts, plastic, or cams. Be sure to oil the hook/race (one drop only) every 8 hours of sewing time. She'll probably run forever!

How to thread the Nelco A2?


To find a user's manual, search the internet for:
Manufacturer + Model + the word "Manual"

Search YouTube videos for threading tutorials:

With your Nelco, be sure that you install the needle properly. Frequently, Nelco machines take the needle with the flat side facing toward the throat of the machine--not toward the read like most other machines. The upper thread will thread through the needle's eye from the left toward the right. They also are a left needle position machine--meaning, the standard position of the needle when sewing straight stitch is at the left side of the presser foot, not center like most other machines.
