Bobbin Identification

Recommended Posts

I have a number of these bobbins, (see attached) and I have been trying to figure out who made them.   There are no markings or anything to indicate who the manufacturer was.   Is this familiar to anyone?

Those look very cool. Sorry I can't help you. The only draw back I can see with those is, you need to load the bobbing to use that bobbin holder. If the slim line configuration is more comfortable for you it might be worth it.

Still, very nice. I might make some like that out of ivory. (You know, for the snobbier tiers)

The only negative I give it is that it cannot use standard bobbins.   The hole on them are too small.

I do like the tensioner on it.

Yeah, that's what I was trying to say.

Looks a lot like an all wood bobbin that Wasatch might make, although I don't recall them making an all wood bobbin.

They probably use a sewing machine bobbin.

Tried these, they do not fit, the hole in them is too small.

My guess is it was designed to re-spool off of a standard spool to fill its spool with thread.

The Rebel Triad Alliance...

Those were the Daze !

Jay Smit (Jvice/Renaissance man) gifted me a “prototype” (the one pictured above)... fine tuned adjustable thread tension and robust...
He opted for his brilliant and more ergonomic design (see photo of Jvice / Jbobbin)...

Engineers always raise the bar !

Faruk Ekich (Damaseal/automatic bobbin) never ceases to amaze !
