I have the dressmaker Euro Pro 998b as well and I never got a bobbin case either. It's a smaller machine and I assumed the housing for the bobbin must function differently than a full size machine, but now I wonder if that's wrong. I have been having problems with the bobbin thread not catching and I think that must be why after reading so many other people have the same issue with this model. I'm going to try to contact the manufacturer and see if they can investigate this with the serial number and product codes on the box, and I encourage any one else having a similar problem to do the same and post your results. I looked up the price to replace the case and its over $20 with tax & shipping (the machine itself retails for $30!) I refuse to invest in it, it's a shoddily made machine and not built to last. However, if the manufacturer is willing to provide one at no cost I'd give this machine another shot. I'll post my results as soon as I find out so those of you having the same issue can resolve it and getting sewing again (if you haven't chucked the thing out a window by now! :)

Oh boy! I've worked on industrial sewing machines for over 30 years, but the home sewing machines are like comparing cadillacs to mopeds. No offense, but if you want performance out of a machine try an industrial. It will shock you with the difference. Be glad to help you find the right one.
Anyway, the problem you are having is quite common. First, make sure it is threaded right especially the moving spring on the needle thread tension) and the needle is new. This generally covers 75% of the problem. Make sure the bobbin thread is threaded correctly.
If you are still having the problem remove the bobbin/bobbin case and observe the needle/hook point relationship as you turn the handwheel. The hook point should pass behind the needle at the scarf of the needle (indention just above eye of needle) If it is not so the needle bar may have moved up on you. Did the machine get jammed?
I'm not sure about the rod you're talking about but lets try this first.
