    I have heard that you should use metal bobbins with metal bobbin cases and plastic with the plastic ones. Don't know if that is gospel or not.

    Ok I just watched a very handsome, young, thin man with a mustache and a big smile threadle his Singer 319! WOW! I want one - I am now on the hunt for a 319! Glenn, you are right the 'clip' you sent me is very short, but WOW it looks like so much fun to treadle a machine that does decorative stitches! What year is your 319? That machine sounds so smooth running!

    Thank you!

    Nancy
    I had to pull out my medicare card to make sure you were watching the right clip :lol: I think if I remember correctly I dated it to 1964. I don't have all the flat cams for it yet but have not really looked for them. With the one I have and the keys I can do many stitches. It is a great machine to sew with.

    It's a German made machine, the C numbers began about 1908. All of the records were lost when the Russian Army invaded Wittenburg in 1945.

    I have a babylock embroidery machine, it seems to work better for me with a metal bobbin. Works smoother, and
    better. I also use metal bobbin on my 221-1 singer.
    What did you think?
    I think with the Babylock, you should probably be using the bobbins that were made for it, i.e., plastic.

    The 221 is going to work better with the bobbins that were made for it which would be metal.
