I have a Singer 29K51 sewing machine. Having loaded the bobbin, installed it in the shuttle, and closed the plate, I am having trouble getting the loop necessary for sewing which is created by the top thread and the bobbin thread. I have looked up pfds of the loading of the bobbin and shuttle and believe that I am doing it correctly. Can anyone give any trouble shooting suggestions? Thank you!

angelren, on some of the older machines, the needle gets threaded from left to right, versus front to back.

Did you see this? The machine in this video is threaded left to right. Don't know how much that helps but It's fun to watch :)

A teacher pointed at me with a ruler and said "At the end of this ruler is an idiot." I got detention when I asked "Which end?"

angelren these machines are wonderful, when they work but when they don't so frustrating. A few things they do thread left to right as stated also when pulling the bobbin thread bobbin should turn counter clockwise. I know that might sound silly but they don't sew otherwise. Timing is also important so with the cover open watch the needle as it starts to move up, the shuttle point should be at the edge of the needle. timing is adjusted under on the shaft that runs the to gear slides on the shuttle carrier. hope this helps.
