Nelco JA 38 Sewing Machine Threading Diagram
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.
