Question about Singer Featherweight 132Q Mechanical Sewing Machine
I got this refurbished Singer sewing machine model 132Q when someone just left it in my apartment building with the note that it was free, like new but needed to assemble. The manual it comes with, doesn't say anything how to assemble and all it's parts are scattered. It has a battery at bottom and some wires which I don't know how to attach. I am not sure if requires AC adapter.. So my basic question is how do I assemble it? Does it operate with battery? Do I need anything to plug it in?
Please help me!!!!!!

SOURCE: Bobbin does not fill completely
Machines that stop the bobbin winder automatically when the bobbin is full have a mechanism that detects how much thread is accumulating in the bobbin while it is winding, then stops the winder when the bobbin is full. It is likely that the bobbin winding mechanism needs to be adjusted by a mechanic.
On the other hand, if the thread winds evenly, and stops winding when the bobbin is about 3/4's full each time, you probably don't need to worry about it if all else is good (even tension, consistent stitch quality, and so on).
If you'd like me to post some general troubleshooting tips, let me know.

I wanted to turn my daughters old jeans into shorts since they still fit, but were too short. I was having the same problem, but I was able to make some progress. I switched the thread from a poly/cotton blend to 100% polyester and it was a big improvement. I still was unable to stitch through seams. I am going to try a more heavy duty polyester thread and an upholstery needle (18/110).

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)
