I could not get the bobbin off the spindle. Hubby said he would help me and took the whole deal down stairs. He whacked it with a hammer( I had no idea he was going for a hammer) and this happened. Can't really afford a new part or even if a new one would fit my older wheel. none on E-bay.I can get a quick change flyer set. It uses different bobbins. Guess its a good thing I have not ordered more bobbins. I am trying really hard not be bummed, but the thing can't spin now and I just got the hang of it and filled my first bobbin. Gonna go cry now.
