CarolinaBlue86 posted a topic in WantedHi everyone, I recently bought a Davis High Arm Vertical feed sewing machine, and I am in search of a bobbin bullet shuttle for it. Since it's an antique machine I am having trouble finding a replacement bobbin bullet shuttle. If anyone knows of a replacement please let me know! Dimensions: 1 and 15/16 inches long. Width at bobbin opening is half an inch. Here is a picture of the one broken one I have. The foot that fits in the hole is broken off. Thanks!
Hi, Thanks for letting me join. There is so much good info on this site. Congratulations! I have just acquired a Singer cobbler's patcher machine. A few parts were missing but that is now resolved. I want to be able to use #69 bonded nylon thread but it isn't working. The thread is being chewed up on the top and the bottom. I know that it is all about tension on vintage machines, as I have become a repair-person after my Touch & Sew died. Tension, needle size, threading, etc. but my main question is: why the heck didn't they make the bobbin bigger? I can't believe a machine that is supposed to be able to stitch leather shoes and boots has so small a bobbin!!! I really need for this machine to sew bonded nylon size #69 thread since my main leather projects are belts and purses. If you guys have a true 29-4 and can walk me through exactly what each part is for and how I can get this thread to work, I would be most grateful! Thanks so much. Here is a recent purse I finished. I am a fan of simple design.
