This is a Willcox & Gibbs 500-4 Type 516-4-38. There is a manual available in the draw - this should be photocopied later. The type number relates to how to thread it which is in the manual. There are some coloured guides on the machine in paint - not yet fully accurate but certainly "good enough".
