Bobbins For Domestic Singer Sewing Machines

There are several Singer bobbins which look very similar but which have subtle differences that are important to the correct operation of the machine. It is important to ensure that you have the correct bobbin.

You should not use metal bobbins in machines designed for plactic, or vice versa you should not use plastic bobbins in machines designed for metal ones.
