Question about Bernina Artista 180
If the handwheel on your Bernina 707 is hard to turn, it most likely needs a good cleaning and oiling. Old oil dries and tends to get gummy, causing the moving parts to be stiff.

Are you talking about when you thread the bobbin or when you are trying to pull the thread through and begin sewing?
If you are trying to put thread on the bobbin and it won't wind, you can always do it by hand and manually loop it onto the bobbin.
What happens when you try and wind the bobbin? Does it do nothing? Does it start and stop? What is the actual problem you are experiencing? Go to your question posted on Fixya and click on the comment or reply link to answer these questions and I will help you solve this issue.
If you are trying to thread the machine to start sewing and you can't get the bobbin to operate correctly - snap the bobbin in holding the little lever open on the bobbin with your finger. When you put it in place, let the lever go and turn slightly right or left until you hear it click into place. You know you have it in the right place when it no longer turns in a circle. Then thread your needle and manually let the needle down into the bobbin area and when it comes back up, get a pair of scissors and run the blades sideways under the needle to grab both pieces of thread (one from the bobbin and the other from the needle). Then just pull enough thread and separate the bobbin from the needle and insert your material to start sewing.
