I don't see that anyone has responded to what Sunny wrote on 8/10 about her
bobbin case. Her post was in the thread Michelle began on 8/8 about free
motion. Sunny's not stitching on junk SMs, she has a fine Pfaff and, maybe
a Janome - she calls it a 6600. Anyhow. We need to know if this has Ever
happened to anyone else and if we need to put on our weed-eating goggles the
next time we turn the screws on our bobbin cases. Polly
Sunny said >>I have a very good reason for desperately wanting a special
FMQ bobbin holder:
I read everything in the manual, everything everybody here ever said
about adjusting bobbin holders, everything I could find online. Then I
sat down with my Pfaff 7570 bobbin holder and a tiny screwdriver. I
made a ***y, tiny little motion with the screwdriver, hardly visible.
The darned bobbin holder sprang apart like an over wound watch. When
my heart slowed to a normal rhythm I found the pieces and tried to put
it back the way it was before I messed with it. No go. I've got it
into one piece, but thread catches and splits. I've adjusted and oiled
a tiny bit and begged the darned thing to work.
In the end I just bought another bobbin holder. Which is way tighter
than the old one that came with my machine and which requires that I
constantly fiddle with the tension setting. And that was the "easy"
bobbin holder to adjust. No way am I touching***driver to my 6600
bobbin holder after that experience. Nope, I'll just spend the money
up front rather than trying to replace something that may or may not
work as well as the original.
And that is why I'm willing to pay good money for a bobbin holder that
could be adjusted if I was brave enough.
