National Two Spools CAN
These are a series of photos of the Two Spools case (or CAN) that is used in the race area of the sewing machine. Instead of a bobbin a spool of thread is placed in the spool case.
The race where the can sits onto the pin.
Placement onto pin located in the race.
Bottom of can in place.
Top of can in place.
Wow, interesting I have never seen this.
Now that is cooler than glass of iced tea. Joey likie ...... Joey wants one.
Oh!!! To do free motion and not have to stop and fill the bobbin every 2 minutes! Glenda want one, too. LOL
The feed dogs on this machine can be dropped, but I have never done so. I use this machine for piecing since the foot is the perfect 1/4'' and the feed dogs are the same length. Since the feed dogs are the same length, the material feeds in evenly. My FMQ is done best on my Singer 15-90 and my Necchi Supernova. Different machines have different jobs.
Are these two different cans?

Would love to see more pics of the whole machine. i haven't seen this before, but pretty cool! :) :)
Wouldn't we all love this feature on a machine. What is the vintage and make of this one?
Eldredge made the Two Spools and later the company became National. National continued to make the Two Spools.
There are some Two Spools machines with the name Eldredge and some with National.
