The Vesta Manual
Threading the shuttle made easy, as shown in the manual for the Vesta Cylinder Shuttle machine (a transverse shuttle machine with an enclosed, flat-sided shuttle).
These instructions apply to any make of machine with a similar shuttle. If your shuttle looks like the one in the picture below (whether or not it has a flat side), then follow these instructions.
These are the best illustrations I have ever seen in an old manual.
Is it a tiny man with a regular sized bobbin and shuttle, or is he normal size and the shuttle is a giant mock-up, for demonstration purposes only?
I think I know the answer.....
