Can someone help me or does anyone have an easy way to thread the lower looper. I have a euro-pro overlock machine Model #100-546. It has an automatic lower looper threader. I have the handbook that came with the machine but I still am not able to do this correctly. I have to keep calling somebody and taking it to them to help me. Thanks for any available suggestions.

I have to get my book every time, look at each picture and description of each step and follow the directions exactly... Every time.... Only way it will work.. and there is a spot where the looper threads cross each other and I cannot tell which one is supposed to go OVER the other one.. My son has to look at the picture and make sure it is right or it will not sew.. Duh ! ! every time I forget to write it down, and he fusses when I ask him to do it again..

I have problems getting the thread between the tension disks for my left needle. But when I first got the machine I didn't know what the problem was so I would thread it over and over and now I can do it in a snap. Now I know just do the needles again, carefully.

I have learned practice makes perfect. I sat for about an hour the first time I used my serger and just threaded it over and over and over etc...... Now I think I can do it in my sleep. If you are unsure if it correct use scraps to try it out. Otherwise how does it sew I am thinking of getting the same one.
Good luck Catherine
