Ebay is hit or miss, I think you all know. It really is a big garage sale but it is great if you are searching for parts for old sewing machines, like I am at the moment.
A package came today bearing more missing pieces, the puzzle is almost complete.
Dark Chocolate Espresso Beans!!! HA!
It is an anchor. There are no other markings on the bobbin case and it is pretty shiny so my guess is this was a replacement part made sometime in the last 20-30 years…okay, just guessing. It might even be a replacement for the Singer 301 machine too.
I thought about that anchor, why is there an etched anchor on this? Then I remembered reading a snippet on a guild’s web page about a story of bobbin cases being stolen during a retreat/class (I try and devour just about all I can find in my research). How sad. So do you suppose someone etched this anchor into their bobbin as a way of ‘marking’ it?
Oh my goodness…do you think I’ve just received a ‘hot’ bobbin? Flashes of the movie The Red Violin are coming to mind…oh not so much, but just slightly. The real question here is…does it work in my machine?
It does. It could be a better fit but it does work.
The project continues!
