Question about White Sewing Speedylock 1600 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I have a manual for my serger but i can't see how to do the uper looper when i get to the bottom the thread seams to run together
When you thread the serger, your suppose to start threading the 3rd spool (left to right) first, then the 4th spool, then thread the 2nd spool which ends up in the second needle (left to right), There is a lever or bottom looper that the thread must go through before placing thread through the 2nd needle. Finally, the last spool to thread is the 1st spool (left to right). Follow the threading pattern and once you put the thread through the two loops that look like springs, turn the wheel at the right toward you until you can see like a lever with a ****, thread that **** from the back then put the thread through the machine to the right. Turn the knob to toward you again until the upper looper is showing, then you have the put your thread through the hole in that looper then through the first needle. You should now have 4 thread toward the back of your machine which you need to place under the presser foot and to the left side of the machine. There is also a VHS video that goes with the machine to help explain how to thread your serger. Also be sure that each spool of thread is in the tension of the upper colored tension wheels. If it is not, then your stitiches will be loose. Good luck and I hope this helps. I had to watch the video several times before I got it. If you don't have the video, try ebay for and perhaps you can obtain one. The video is Speedylock 1600, instructional video, USA Part #136000016, Perhaps you can contact White and see if they have one you could purchase.
Good Luck Serging!!!!

The threadguides for overlockers, or sergers, are generally colour coded these days.
Your top looper is the 2nd from right, so if you can follow the colour of the tension unit around the guides this should sort you out quickly...
..if it is the White Speedylock 1600 you have, there is a (somewhat confusing) reference guide at SewUSA here

Start threading your serger by beginning with
the upper looper.
Slip the thread in back of 1st guide directly under the
tension dial from right to left.
Slip the thread under the following four guides
Next thread the eye of the looper, and then pull the
thread to the rear of the serger, leaving
about eight inches of thread.
