end of bobbin problems

Recommended Posts

I've chased down my top thread snapping problem. Whenever I'm close to the end of the bobbin (either prewound or wound by me) I have tension problems and my top thread snaps. This doesn't seem right to me-surely I should be able to use up all the bobbin?

Sometimes I have problems with the end of the bobbins. I think it may have to do with inertia but am not sure. I will try and do some investigating. Sometimes my bobbin thread gets caught around the backlash spring. Maybe Dawn will have some ideas. I will ask her.

If the problem is only happening as you near the end of the bobbin, try cleaning the blue backlash spring or replacing it. Its a good idea to have one or two on hand.
