I keep modern, good-quality TESTED metal bobbins for 66k, 99k, 201k, 15k Singers (see below) and I try to have at least some bobbins and shuttles for older and more obscure machines. I prefer not to supply the latter for machines that are not being used - if you just want to put it on the shelf and admire it, please do not order "extras"..
If you have a working shuttle, look after it, please..
If you have a particular need, please be precise - machine model number, length and width of bobbins, type of shuttle etc..
I also have shuttle adjustment keys, bobbin cases, and hooks....
