Question about Singer 7442 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I am taking all the right steps as shown in the manual to wind the bobbin:
1. engage bobbin in winding position 2. wrap thread around presser foot screw 3. run machine
- when I run the machine everything looks like it is working but the thread never catches and winds onto the bobbin.... any ideas?

You can find Singer bobbin winding instructions at http://www.singerco.com/resources/bobbin_wind.html.
"Birdnesting" occurs when there is no tension on the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. This is easily corrected by rethreading the machine, following the threading path carefully and making sure the thread is fully engaged in the tension mechanism.
