Thanks @Renegade Sewist that looks a good needle threader.  My machine has a threader but not like that, you pull a lever down then wrap thread across and release the lever to thread, it sometimes takes a second go to thread.

@Lilian I can literally do it with my eyes closed. What I liked is I have an introductory level embroidery sewing combo, about $400, and a friend has a top of the line version,  about $10,000, with the same threader. I like that Brother didn't cheap out on my machine. It's still a great machine.

I didn’t expect its meaning to be so literal but I like it.

You are going to absolutely love the needle threader. Brother packs a lot of features into these mid range machines. I just adore my se-400

I have to admit now that I've used it a bunch of times, it is pretty flippin good!

I've always had problems with needle threaders due to a dodgy left eye, even if shutting it  and relying on the right one.  My new machine, a Pfaff 710, is flipping perfect.  There is a forked metal piece that you just draw the thread into making it  a jackpot every time.   For the first time I ever I use it every time.
