Do all Brother sewing machines use the same size bobbin?
For the most part yes they are. But like sewing machines, bobbins are not all made the same. Even if you have the same series of a sewing machine as someone else, there will still be some differences to each machine. Bobbins are the same way.
Is bobbin a universal size?
There is no such thing as a universal bobbin, meaning no single bobbin will fit every sewing machine. Some sewing machines tolerate a slightly different bobbin better than others, but using the incorrect bobbin will most likely affect the stitch quality of your project, and could result in damage to your machine.
Do Brother sewing machines need special bobbins?
This machine uses SA156 bobbins which are class 15 type bobbins. Use of any other bobbin may result in injuries or damage to the machine. We recommend the use of Brother genuine parts and accessories.
Can I use metal bobbins in My Brother sewing machine?
Can I interchange metal and plastic bobbins if they are the same size? Metal bobbins and plastic bobbins of the same size can NOT be swapped. Machines are set for a very precise tension setting. If they are set for a lighter plastic bobbin, the tension will change if a heavier metal bobbin is used.
What is the difference between Class 15 and 15J bobbins?
They look almost identical, but class 15 bobbins have flat ends, while class 15J bobbins have slightly curved ends. Sometimes they appear to work interchangeably, but even if they fit into your sewing machine, there is a risk of them jamming your machine up and causing major damage.
Do all sewing machines use the same size bobbin?
Bobbins not only come in different sizes, but also in metal as well as plastic, and empty as well as pre-wound. While machines can only use one bobbin size, whether it is plastic or metal does not typically matter, however consult your machine manual to be sure.
Are spools and bobbins the same?
As nouns the difference between spool and bobbin
is that spool is a device around which thread, wire or cable is wound, especially a cylinder or spindle or spool can be a small swimming pool that can be used also as a spa while bobbin is a spool or cylinder around which wire is coiled.
How long does a bobbin last?
I have looked around and basically found calcs for about 60 yards for a full bobbin. Is that fair to say? I ask as I got a new Brother machine and they use the same class 15 bobbins as my SInger did but when wound fully, there is about 1/8-ish inch left between the thread wound and the edge of the bobbin top.
