    If I had some of those bobbins, I'd just have to get a machine that uses them.

    They also fit a Wheeler and Wilson #8, which I have. No bobbins, I bid up to $65 and then sat back and watched the madness. I stopped into the small mom and pop sewing store that has been owned by the same family for 3 generations and just asked if they happen to have any bobbins, Yes they did and I got it for $5. They even said I can come and look at what else they may have in the dungeon the next time I come in. I love people who never throw something out just because it is old.

    I'll have to go thru my sewing treasures. I have to get rid of any old sewing items as you never know if it will be useful or valuable.

    Wow, I could have had 4-5 of these for $3 about a month ago. I was at an estate sale where they had a W&W9 machine for sale (beautiful, but too much for me). They also had a 60's Kenmore (didn't need that) and in another room, I found a couple of baggies of sewing stuff for $3 eash. One had several old bobbins in it at I pointed out to the sellers, looked like they went to the W&W machine, and we looked at the one in the machine drawer, yes it was the same. So they put them in the machine drawer. Whoever bought it should thank me.
