I have an ALCO 2200. Luckily I have the manual. If some one need the manual, I can photocopy and send it to you, if you do not mind paying the postage. :)

Sometimes the spool pin is in with the accessories and not on the machine.

Still no pin? Try these folks - http://www.allynint.com/

See that button/knob at the lower right hand-side of the front? The center is a button you depress and hold to reverse. Good luck!

The thread will be threaded in a clockwise direction on the tension control. Pull the thread until there is a tension on the spring. There will be a catch on the thread that you will notice this. Now, thread the machine in the same way that is normal. It should work. Make sure you start your tension at four to test how it is doing. From there make slight changes in tension. Don't worry about the very tiny bend in the wire at the very end. It is only for weight and to keep your thread from catching and getting broken.

Actually, $10 for a manual is probably a valuable investment. It will not only help you with threading & winding the bobbin but also with maintenance and care of your machine and as well as how to use your machine. Similar brand machines thread and wind the bobbin in the same manner. So, even finding a similar Necchi and the bobbin winding method should be helpful. Necchi bobbin wind Google Search ...

This site (www.sewusa.com) sells manuals for many types of sewing machines. It also has a section (on left side of home page) that provides basic information about treading (bobbins too) and repair.

I also own a 525 FA and just read that someone considers it is a piece of junk. I'm having problems with the tread breaking constantly (with many hours spent on this problem) and I even have a manual! Perhaps it is a piece of junk?

Good luck!
