Default Bobbin winder tire?

Where can I find a bobbin tire rubber for a National Eldridge E crank machine? And I would really like some advice or use page as to oiling, threading, etc. Bought this for for wife.

Not sure if this is the model you are looking for. Is the Eldredge sewing machine the one that uses a spool of thread for the bobbin? What a cool feature.

I have the tiny long bobbins with the bullet shaped shuttle case.

Welcome to Quilting Board. It appears that you have a machine similar to the ones seen at http://www.doubleveil.net/zssmp/expertbt.htm and there is a manual at the top of the page for those machines, which has oiling instructions. As for the bobbin winder tire, I'm thinking that it would take a #2460 as for some of the other National machines as seen on http://www.doubleveil.net/zssmp/reversew.htm

The Eldredge E uses 20x1 needles which are longer than the 15x1 needles that are currently available. Sometimes you can find 20x1 needles on eBay. Many have used the modern needles on machines like this by dropping the needle a bit from the stop. Someone, on another forum (titled "15x1 rather than 20x1 needles"), used a sheet magnet cut to fit inside the needle bar in order to have the 15x1 needle stop at the proper position.

Default Progress!

Just an update. Got the tires, the needles, lubed up the Eldridge E. And the wife sewed on it like a dream. Thanks for all your help!

Good for you. Thank you for getting back and letting us know.

Curious about the bobbin winder tire - which one did you get?

Default tires

The #2460's, fit like a glove, and worked real good.

Whew, I was hoping that the 2460 worked on your machine. I would have been upset if I had led you wrong. It is good to know and have it posted which tire was the correct one and that it worked well.

No worked real good. And after all, that's what this is all about. Helping people, or at least trying out best.
