For the bobbin, put the spool in the metal part and hold the thread tail in one hand and let the bobbin lay flat in your other hand.
Pull up slowly on the thread.
If the thread comes out with no resistance, you need to tighten.
If the thread picks the bobbin up off your palm, it is too tight.
The goal is to have the bobbin stand up in your hand, but not leave it. KWIM?
If you need, I can take pics
