    Is there some place that gives a listing of what bobbins fit what machines. I have gotten the bug...and currently there are a couple of White's (still trying to find info out on them), an Elna Grasshopper, Singer 15, 101 (need to figure out how to rewire that one), 66 treadle, 66 redeye, 201 (love that way that one sounds when it runs), a 185k (needs the stitch regulator, and a 127 Sphinx. I know the 127 is a VS. A couple of the White's take the bobbins that are flat and quarter size (had one in it when I got it). But the rest??? Nowhere in the manuals does it say, or if it did, I haven't found it. Any help?

    Weedwoman, welcome, you are going to love this site.

    I've already been offering furniture to my grown grandsons to set up housekeeping and my poor husband is probably scared I'll get rid of his favorite ez chair and park a machine there.

    She called me a sewing machine hoarder, LOL, so I told her I'd still keep her bed in there, she'll just have to live with the machines when she visits home, lol!

    Okay Guys, Does the 128 VS mean a vibrating shuttle? I don't know all the abreviations for the refrences to the machines. Anne

    Anne wins the prize!!!!

    Yes it is a Vibrating Shuttle and until you had an electrified 128 portable and spooled it up wide open you just do not know the true meaning of Vibrating Shuttle!! I chased that machine all over my bench in the shop is was vibrating so much. So if you have an electrified 128 or any VS machine run it at a slow pace!!

    I'm hoping these pics will come through, they may not be very good and I'll try to do better later on. I didn't take pics of them all.
