This is a beautiful machine, I'm wondering about the bobbin in this machine.
Does anyone know if these are the shuttle bobbins? and are they difficult to work?
Enjoy!

I did contact Singer who asked for a pic because these were made in yrs that their records were lost. Sent them pics now that I learnt how --but it's the weekend so reply may take few days.
Yes, it takes the long shuttle and machine is electric with champion motor not a Singer motor. some vintage users easily recognize the models.
Sorry I had forgot to add serial # JAO77213

Doesn't the model 27 have the bobbin winder lower on the post? I thought it was the 28 that had the bobbin winder up by the wheel.
