Default Need help for Singer sewing machine

Hi so I have just found my grandma’s sewing machine. The spool pin is missing and I was wondering if I can buy any spool pin to replace it or if it needs to be made for this machine (if so may I have the link to one I can get ).thank you very much

You can probably find the spool pin you need at Central Michigan Sewing Supplies:

For some reason the images aren't showing. Did you remember to hit the "Upload" button?

We like pictures. In order to post pictures on Quilting Board, you will probably need to reduce or compress the picture to a file size that is smaller than 2MB. How to post images can be found at https://www.quiltingboard.com/attach...020-01-17-.pdf
Don't forget to scroll over to the far right to find and click on the "Upload" button.

It could be a tap-in style or screw in. Anxiously awaiting to see pictures of your machine.

That helps a lot, thank you. It pleases me when people have inherited machines and want to use them for their original purpose.


You have a 99k, hand crank machine. The serial number was allocated in December of 1947, so may not have been actually manufactured until 1948. There is a manual for a later 99 machine at https://www.manualslib.com/manual/15...-Class-99.html It is for an electric machine (but has instructions for hand crank), with reverse stitch length and numbered tension dial. But, the oiling and threading would be the same. You will want to oil it with sewing machine oil. You can also wipe it down with sewing machine oil, so that you don't ruin the decals.


It appears that it would take a tap-in spool pin number 2007. Your machine would have originally taken a metal spool pin, but a plastic one would work. As indicated on https://www.sewingpartsonline.com/sp...g-machine.aspx it fits many other Singer machines as well.


Have fun with your grandma's machine.

And if you are in a hurry you can use a shortened wooden kabab skewer. Good looking machine. My GR and I do demos with 99 HCs. ( and others)

When I had to buy a tap in metal spool pin, I resorted to a UK Ebay seller -I am from France too. However Glasman seems to carry one https://www.glasman.fr/a10720/tige-porte-bobine.html -not affiliated with link-
