Question about Singer Sewing Machines
Models Futura II 920 and 6235. Need to know approx. original retail price in 1974 and 1980's. Thank you.
THE SINGER 6235 ARE BOTH GOOD. I'VE LOOKED AT THE FUTURA AND BELIEVE IT IS NEWER THAN THE 6235. THE FUTURA WILL GIVE MORE CHOICES OF STITCHES. EITHER ONE WILL BE A GOOD PURCHASE. EITHER ONE WILL BE HEAVY SO YOU KNOW THERE IS A LOT OF METAL FOR LONG LIFE. THE ORIGINAL PRICE IS HARD TO FIND OUT. IF YOU WANT TO KNOW TODAYS SELLING PRICE YOU CAN CHECK EBAY FOR A GOOD INDICATOR. THE PRICE AT THE TIME YOU ARE SPEAKING ABOUT MIGHT HAVE BEEN AROUND $200-$400.

SOURCE: cannot thread bobbin
If I remember correctly this machine has a little arm in the bobbin case area. You will need to open the slide plate, move that arm towards the middle of the bobbin. Thread your machine as normal, take the thread going through the needle eye and wrap it around the thumb screw a couple times, then start "sewing" your bobbin should begin filling, once started, you can release the thread wrapped around the thumbscrew. Once filled, you simply close the slide plate and that moves the arm back into place and start sewing.

I have this machine for more than 30 yrs-- when this happens, the top thread is not pulled through the little disks correctly when you go up before getting to the arm. Here is a threading diagram

if you still haven't found one, reply to this thread. I have one as a PDF that I just bought for $5 that I'd be willing to share (this goes for anyone who finds this post, too)

This happens when we forget to have the presser foot raised when threading.
What looks like the fault of the bobbin is actually the top thread not forming a tight stitch with the bobbin thread.
When the machine is threaded with the foot down, the tension control is closed and the thread cannot enter the control as it should. When you begin to sew, the tension control cannot do it's job.
If the machine is already threaded, lift the presser foot and pull about 10" of thread from the needle, or re-thread the machine with the presser foot up.
