Default no motor-no problem winding a 1940 128 bobbin.

Hello all,

High high's the water Mom is the current question with record breaking rain/flooding in Louisiana. Totally unbelievable , but, to the subject at hand. I was working on my 128 and wanted to wind the bobbin on the machine as opposed to using one of my other for the job. Well, I had my dremel tool with a wire brush cleaning a few parts when I thought about using it to power the winder assy. I removed the brush and installed the drum sander and used it to power the bobbin winder. Then I removed the sanding sleeve and used the rubber against the balance wheel. All worked well and on the slowest setting, 5k, it spooled up the bobbin in short order. I don't know if anyone has tried this method, but it worked for me. I have a few pics to show the process. Now back to checking the rising water and road closures in my area. Chow for now.

Hope you are safe and stay dry.

That is clever. I'll have to remember this. I kind of wish I had seen a week or so ago.

Very clever. We moved from south Louisiana 3 months ago but are going back for a visit tomorrow. Sad to see pictures of the flooding
