    Really cool illustration on how a thread injector works

    For those of us (like me) who are a bit slow to figure out how the magic works


    Taken from this blog post:

    The funny bit is i wondered until i was 36 years of age how the heck those things worked without 2 needles.

    Wow, that is a great illustration of how it works. I had often laid awake in my hammock late at night pondering the meaning of the automagic thread injector.

    Mystery solved.

    I know for sure mine has some gremlins in there that mess with the thread.
