It's the smallest sewing machine I ever saw. It actually works, and it makes a decent stitch. The frame feels solid. It can fit either a full-size or half-size bobbin of thread. It comes pre-threaded. It's surprisingly sophisticated, with adjustable tension(if your stitches aren't tight enough, tighten the spring) and even a foot that moves the material.
The instructions won't do you much good no matter what language you read since the diagrams are sketchy, so look at its threading very carefully before you ever undo it. The complicated mechanism in the top half that loops thread and moves the foot is the bit that will probably wear out first.
Pull the large plastic shell off the top and face the machine towards you. See the philips screw on the right? Oil the base of it a little. That will make the mechanism slide a lot smoother and hopefully last longer. One reviewer noted there's a plastic part the needle hits that wears out first -- the needle should NOT be hitting that! Maybe your needle wasn't in all the way. The needle is apparently a 14/90.
This machine is no joke, it makes a real stitch and is more sophisticated than it looks. People who've used sewing machines before might find it familiar.
