    Bobbin Question

    What machine would these bobbins belong to. I purchased a Beautiful Tan & Brown White Sewing Machine and these were in the drawers but I am most positive they do not belong to the White Brand Sewing Machines.

    The round shaped on is for a Wheeler and Wilson. Boy could I use that one. The others are far a White Family Rotary a very early model around 1915 or so.

    Yup - what Glen said - one Wheeler Wilson and the rest White, though they will fit a wide age range, basically if it's White made rotary and top clamp feet - it takes that bobbin. I've got a machine from about 1910 and another from around 1940, and they take the same bobbins. I would expect the White made Kenmore (top clamp) take the same bobbin, but don't know that for sure. It is the same as the "Domestic" branded Whites too.

    Yes that is correct. I have two White made Kenmore Rotarys and they use that bobbin.

    I love the old iron and wood machines. They're solid and reliable.

    I don't know for sure but if you're talking about the White you just posted here Another Addition To My Growing Sewing Machine Addiction
    I would suspect that machine uses class 15 bobbins.

    EDIT: I should have added that from what I've seen the Japanese Whites were basically the same as other Singer 15 clones, just badged differently. I don't know anything about the more modern ones.

    Yes, that is what I am talking about. These bobbins were found in one of the drawers but the bobbin in the machine is a class 15. I just had never seen any bobbins like these so I was just wondering what they belonged to. I am so thankful for all of the knowledgeable people on this board.

    Like I said - Top clamp Feet on a White - those bobbins fit, Side clamp feet on a White, class 15 bobbins.

    The interesting part - at one time Singer was about the only US made machine using side clamp feet.
