    I love it that so many machines use class 66 or class 15 bobbins.

    I am so happy that I don't need to find new class 66 bobbins. I bought a lot of 35 original metal bobbins on Ebay a few years ago. I have 4 machines that use this type of bobbin.
    Wow, you must have got a particularly lousy batch. In all the ones I've got I've only got a couple that have loose rims. Other than that they are useable.

    I have had more trouble from Class 15 bobbins than the 66s.

    I had a whole batch from WM fall apart
    sew-classic has the class 15 bobbins as well -
    I have had some of those class 15s from other places roll the case and all right out of the machine - they were out of round or something.

    Hi, i just joined today after doing some research on some bobbins i came about at a thrift store. i'd never seen any like them and i have since realized they were original class 66 bobbins. i took a picture so everyone can see. If anyone wants them i am happy to list them on ebay for you.

    The 4 on the top look to be the oldest so i would think those were the very original ones that came with the machine. But i'm no expert

    Thanks, Alicia
