Pass the thread from the thread stand downward through the eye (1, Fig. 1,5)

bobbin from the winder spindle.

The adjusting screw (A, Fig. 15) can be turned in or out to increase or

decrease the amount of the thread wound on the bobbin.

If the thread does not wind evenly on bobbins, loosen the screw (B, l ig 1.5)

and move the bracket to the right or left as may be required and tighten the screw.
