Lovely machine - it looks like you got a very good deal. But then I live in So. Cal. and it seems we pay top dollar for everything.

The modern repro bobbins will work on your machine, but you will have to guide the thread by hand as you wind the bobbin.

The modern repros are about 3/32" too short for the bobbin winder to fill the bobbin evenly from end to end - you usually end up with a "dog-bone" effect, with the ends being filled and the middle half full.

Guiding the thread onto the bobbin while you treadle isn't difficult though. Jenny at sew-classic carries them: http://shop.sew-classic.com/Shuttle-...k-SCBN8228.htm



I've had the best luck finding vintage bobbins on eBay.

I think it's a very good deal. And if it didn't come with attachments or bobbins, it's very easy to find parts for. Try to buy only vintage bobbins for it - the modern repros are a little short, so you have to guide the thread by hand. If the longer vintage bobbins are used, the machine will fill the bobbins evenly and automatically.

Have fun with it - they're wonderful machines. Some people like quilting on the vibrating shuttle machines even more than on the 15's. :)
I didn't know that! I have a 15 treadle, 3/4 size. It works like a charm.

Maybe I didn't write that very clearly - I hope I didn't somehow mislead you.

It's the treadle cabinet made for 3/4 sized machines (like the 28/128 & 99) that is hard to find.

If you have a 15, that's a standard size machine.

But, if you have a 3/4 sized Singer treadle machine, it's a either a 28/128 or a 99. :)
