    Valuable W&W 9 bobbins

    You may not believe this - I still find it hard to, but I had been watching an ebay auction for 5 W&W 9 bobbins. The photos showed they were the bagel or donut type. After 31 bids, they sold last night for $255.00 and $5.35 shipping. So I went to look an see how many of those bobbins were in my wooden box of attachments. I have eight of them!
    Anyway, I know they are hard to find but never would have thought they were that valuable.

    Let's see, at $51.00 each, you're sitting on over $400....hello, e-bay???? Sounds like a good way to put a little money back in your pocket...

    icon17,

    Some people are just plain STUPID. They get an attitude that they just must have that object and won't quit bidding. Seen it lots of times.

    Glenda,

    They fit the Wheeler & Wilson #9 and the Singer 9W machines, amongst others. Instead of being flat on the sides like a regular Class 15 bobbin or a 221 / 301 bobbin, the sides are curved. The look just like a miniature bagel or donut.

    Glenda,

    I thought I had a pic of the donut bobbin, but I don't.
    Here is a GW auction for a Singer 9W. Look at the fourth pic down on the right side. That is the curved bobbin we are talking about.

    Scared the dickens out of me. I bought a WW9 to refurbish. Got up immediately to check that it had the bobbin. Yeeea! It' there. Will guard it with my life. Looks like the bobbin is worth more than I paid for the machine

    Thanks for the info. I don't have any of those bobbins, so guess I will not have a 'retirement' fund. LOL Looks like the one in the photo needs a good cleaning!!

    Not sure if this will work, but will try to attach the link to the ebay auction showing the pictures.

    I think it works!
