    Was it someone on this group that needed a needle clamp for their Singer 27?

He told me to never use metal bobbins and to only use plastic because metal will ruin my machine. I am confused. Any imput from anyone? Kathie
    How could he tell you metal would ruin your machine? When they started making the 66 they did not have plastic bobbins? I say use a good quality bobbin, plastic or metal, that works in your machine. I don't use plastic in my 66, but mine is a 1914 machine -- there were no plastic bobbins then.

    Miz Johnny, Billy, anyone else have an opinion? I am curious too as I was told to never use plastic bobbins in my 66!

    Nancy[/quote Nancy, I agree with you. My '63 401A will only use a certian metal bobbin. if it's a cheaper one(bobbin) it won't give me a good stitch.

    Well Monica, I have to agree I forgot to mention the fact that I only use vintage metal bobbins not the new ones.

    You all remember the major problems a plastic bobbin caused with my fancy/very expensive Pfaff embroidery machine? I still have not gotten that machine fixed as it is going to cost me over $500 to fix what that plastic bobbin caused.

    Sorry Tomilu, but that's not a Red eye, its 127 with Sphinx decals. The red eye decals only came on the model 66.

    You people are killing me. I want a treadle because I sewed on my grandmother's. The Kansas one is in my price range. My son was criss-crossing that area last week. It'd fit in a corner of his big truck. Wah, wah, wah.
