    Does anyone have an old Singer industrial machine? I've got a really old one and can't remember how to thread it I'd love to use it but it's just gathering dust...

    Please help!

      It says Singer 660 A1 on the front - it's grey.

            Hi.
            It is different from mine, but following the way mine goes I would try:
            From the reel on the post,
            Through the plate with 3 holes, may need to experiment with which hole -
            through the wire circle (above stitch tensioner -Silver knob thingy) -
            round the stitch tensioner, so cotton is beneath and tensioned by the spring and wire. (Mine goes round from the right through the wobbly plates and up until the wire thing flips back down. Sounds more difficult than it is as it is just a quick fluid circular movement)
            Then through an uppy downy bit, possibly the proud grey bit if there is an obvious holder/hole, or maybe the hooky looking bit beside the tensioner.
            Then down to the needle, passing through any supports on the way and through the needle right to left.
            Hope that helps, although it probably only makes sence in my head (welcome to my world)
