    I bought a Singer 403 and a Singer Stylist 457. Both have what looks like a class 66 bobbin plastic bobbin. I bought a couple of packs of class 66 at Walmart (metal) and they won't work. Am I wrong in thinking these machines take the class 66?

    So you just looking for FWs? or other machines too?

    I didn't realize your ad was ISO.
    Are you in N. CA? Bay Area or Sacramento?

    There was a free Singer in treadle posted.

    OOh! There's a puzzle box of attachments with it. I hope someone saved the machine and all her attachments.

    Some of the CL ads in the Kansas City, Mo, area:
    Reasonable, I think.

    What are they smoking?

    There are others. Some are reasonable but some are just ridiculous. I saw one listed and described as rare. It was a Singer and all the seller showed was the cabinet!

    Did you try sewing with the 403 but with the plastic bobbin? I thought the 403 took metal bobbin but maybe a class 15. I don't know as I don't own one. I do have a 457 that I haven't played with but that may be a plastic bobbin. I know when I bought it, the seller gave me a box of both plastic and metal bobbins.

    They both had a plastic bobbin in them, sewed wonderfully, and both bobbins looked the same. As a matter of fact, they look the same as the metal ones but the metal are too tight.

    That is interesting. Unfortunately, I have reached the extent of my knowledge with these models. If you have a manual for the 403, that might tell you what type/size of bobbin you need. I do know that subbing a plastic bobbin for metal one and vice versa is not good for the machine. Hopefully some of the experts, with a 403, will chime in with their knowledge.

    Not me...I'm south of Sac. but that would be close to a 2hr. each way drive for me. Free is good, but not for 4 hours of driving, maybe more depending on traffic. Hope someone picks it up!

    Yup, I could go after it, but I don't have room for the treadle.
    I'm hoping someone will nab it. But that free puzzle box is tempting.

    I passed on this FW yesterday. He is asking a bit high since it isn't the prettiest; has scratches, missing bottom cover, and some wiring needs work.

    But if someone wanted a cheap FW to clean up this would be a good one.

    You should be able to find out what type of bobbins the 403 takes with a google search. They would use metal bobbins. The stylist may take plastic if the bobbin area is plastic.

    Mainly, I'm looking for sad machines for parts. I've had a few responses. I'm actually not looking for a FW either, mainly parts for my 319's and 301.
    IF you live up in Sacramento area, there is a lady that could be of help to you for some of your parts. She has thousands of parts! And hundreds of machines!
    Well, I'm pretty cheap in this regard...I won't pay "asking" price for some of these parts:> If I can pick up a second, rough machine I'd rather do that. And the hunt is fun:> But, thanks, if I ever HAVE to have a part I'll get her contact #.
