Question about Husqvarna Viking 1
I've had these machines - with students learning to sew - There are SEVERAL shuttle systems with this brand - if you have a two piece back case that the bobbin shuttle sits in -- these "STORIES" will work.
If not maybe post again - I'll see if I can help - the system is set BACKWARDS no matter the style of bobbin or where it is located on the machine.
You don't the opening location so I'll give you the stories for - front load below needle. The steps will also work with the topload - you just don't have to lie the machine down - if topload you should STAND BEHIND the machine to STACK the parts in as listed below.
If you are looking at the manual - you are looking at the entire process BACKWARD...Even with no manual it is a backward process.
Please don't laugh as you read through this - I taught young children - so this is how I have it memorized...I'm not attempting to "talk down" to you - these are my stories for 15 years with my kids.
Two ways to set this up - depends it you like to sit or stand....and on the size of your machine....and if you have to worry about belts/oil.....please pick what works for you.
- You can lie the machine in your lap or on to of a table - either way make sure it doesn't try to "escape" Sewing machines that get very slick and try to slip away from you.
- the machine thread spindles are facing you (where the thread goes) there are making every attempt to get close enough to poke your hip so you don't let them...(keep kis from breaking or bending spindles)
- handwheel (the circle) is on your left
- the bottom of the machine (the base is far away from you) because no one likes to see a bottom...
- pretend you are a CRANE operator placing parts of steel building parts near or on each other to make a building
- YOU wiill be starting with the swimming pool
- remember a crane operator NEVER sees the same building being built as the workers on the ground do - he sees everything in reverse and backward.
START THE CRANE!!
- first pick up the big flat base - put it into the hole to the right of the driver - up like a broken swimming pool - it faces up and on your right. HOLD ON HERE COMES ANOTHER PIECE.
- here comes the other half of the pool facing up the spike diving board is near the base - like a shark hiding (your model may have the HOOK (shark fin) towards your body
-don't let the pieces slip onto the top of each other like bricks because the ground is a little uneven- the pieces of the swimming pool might not set just perfect yet - that is okay - you might have to put one finger in the middle to help steady the load
- now set the ring in be careful there is a small part sticking out and you need to fill the extra space (the metal prong fits into the notch the
- line up the ring and fill in the small existing hole
- now frame the pool with the frame -be careful look at your
black FLIPPERS on each side - you may need to have the bumps up on the frame to hold the pool in place (the frame will fit one of two ways - bumps up or down - the "flippers" should sort of move over and it has a feel of a speed bump - then the pool is secure.
- ONLY AFTER THE FLIPPERS ARE SET is it "safe" to move the pool.
- If you did it wrong - the pool will fall out in your lap or on the table when you set the machine up. If your pool falls out - start again.
Her is a way that works for MANY KIDS - I JUST GET A HEADACHE:
Turn machine AWAY from you - lean over the top a replace parts in "opposite order to what the picture looks like. (I may miss a step I don't have an exact parts list in front of my face- so adjust as necessary
REMEMBER MACHINE IS TURNED AWAY FROM YOU (and I taught young kids - so please pardon my reference points....
- it goes - SANDWICH TIME - SANDWICH OF STEEL!
- case (SOLID HUNK OF BREAD( back of shuttle (more solid back - GOES IN FIRST open faced out away from your belly button ON RIGHT SIDE OF YOUR belly button )
- the HOOK half of shuttle it will be ON LEFT-hook on top sits to LEFT of your belly button (may face up towards your face or down to the table
- a little on top of other piece...hold BOTH PARTS IN - like you have a very fat piece of cheese and you are pushing on it so it won't tip off the bread)
- now take the round ring (may have a metal mini TOOTHPICK sticking up - guide the Toothpick into the spot between the "teeth" there is a "notch" sometimes on the bottom - sometimes on the top depends on model
- move the fingers OFF your cheese - let the ring take over the job (of holding two pieces into the sandwich)
- then like a well made sandwich put the BREAD on top of the entire sandwich. the "front plate - often a square frame that fits -
- bring up the BLACK BRIDGES (the two flippers olives) to NAIL the entire sandwich into the table) NOW LET GO. If it all falls out we didn't have our SANDWICH meat smooth enough. Try again.
Hope this helps.
