Wertheim - Baer & Rempel "Phoenix" antique treadle sewing machine BEFORE PHOTOS

I don't know how I managed to buy another sewing machine. this one was $60, probably too much for the state it is in. this would have been quite a beautiful piece when it was new (it has a few parts where the origianl gold scroll work is visible and the decorate inlays in the table are nice) I finally got this thing ticking over....took me about 4 hours. it spins well and sounds ace...

Hi! I think my machine is phoenix M, but I'm not 100% do you know anything about threading the bobbincase on these machines? I'm desperate to get my machine going :-)
