    If they fit, it doesn't matter.

    YES! The brother bobbins have a groove inside the center, and are taller. Read the page about winding in the instruction book!

    Don't throw them out!
    Use them this way. Wind thread on them and carry them for handsewing. Several of them will hold a lot more thread than a lumpy unhandy shaped spool.
    Bunches of the filled metal bobbins fit into a little pocket kit.
    I also like to wind decorative thread on them.

    I was told by my dealer that the metal ones will ruin your machine. I took my metal ones to them and they traded with me. It didn't matter because I wasn't going to take a chance. After all purchasing new bobbins are a whole lot less expensive than buying a new sewing machine.
