I have an old Baby Lock Serger that needs a part for the air threading lower looper (inside the machine). I have searched online and can't find a description anwhere of it. Can you tell me where I may find this part to fix my machine? I bought it used, and it is missing one of these tubes or hoses, whatever it's called. My sister has a machine just like it and we know what it needs, but don't know where to get it.

Make sure the lower looper thread is seated properly in the tension disk. (RAISE the presser foot. Grasp the thread between the thread tree and the tension disk and with the other hand, grasp the thread below the tension disk and give a little tug.) When threading, always RAISE the presser foot so the tension disks are released.
If the lower looper thread is still too loose, set it to a tighter setting until it creates the stitch you want.
Serger manuals for early machines are really basic.
Thread in order.
upper looper, lower looper, right needle, left needle. (see the inside of the looper cover door.)
Adjust tensions to suit the fabric you are sewing.
If you need to change colors clip threads near the spools and tie on new spools to previous threads and draw threads through an already threaded machine.
Bernina is the brand. But I believe early models of the serger were made by Juki. I've looked for the manual for 006 as well and found thinging. Your only other choice is find someone who has one for sale and ask for a scanned copy.... or order a new one from Bernina or one of the other places that has one.
Raise the antenna to it's highest position.
Turn the handwheel until the loopers are at their highest position.
Set tensions to zero and raise the presser foot.
Begin threading from right to left, beginning with the upper looper.
Set the tensions back to mid-range.
Lower the presser foot and stitch a chain and if it is formed as it should be you are ready to serge.
There are manuals available for downloading at the Babylock website for the models DX and SX.
