  1. To explain with a bit more detail what was happening: the cobbler came with one of the pieces broken, the one that connects the arm that's in front of the machine with the needle arm (pictured). The seller sent a replacement, but it was shorter. With the new piece in place, it changed the height at which the needle rests, so when the loop is created for the hook to grab through, the thread end that pulls through the needle's eye was pulling upwards and the bobbin case was pressing it against the wall. The spacing between the walls and the bobbin case is so tight that the thread is essentially cut. Again, thanks for the help!
  2. I went back to the workshop and started looking at how it should behave. I realized the needle was not going all the way down and decided to move the pipe that holds the needle an 8th of an inch down so that when the needle moves a bit up to create the thread loop that the bobbin shuttle hook catches, the needle hole is about at the bottom of the bobbin. Now it works fine. Thanks for all the comments.
  3. My new Chinese cobble machine keeps breaking/snapping the thread as seen in the following video: Any help on how to fix this problem is appreciated. Thanks!
