These are from when we got the Singer, before cleaning it up at all. Just to the left of the hand wheel is the built in bobbin winder. I took it off completely when cleaning the machine, and it was definitely the rustiest part that I just could not get clean. The rubber wheel was cracked, so I bought a new one on ebay and it didn't fit.
And does the 66 have that?
Yes, but it's a different shape (round) and in a different spot.
So I went to the back porch and looked for the bobbin winder, which I was sure was sitting on the ground next to where the machine sat for nearly a year.
And was it there?
No, and I have no freakin clue where it is!
In conclusion, I went on ebay and bought a nice, non rusty one that still has all the gold decals on the black part for less than 20 bucks. Hopefully it works!
PS- Is being too stupid to type part of being pregnant? I swear, every second word is wrong and writing this took an absurdly long time.
