Default Differen type of bobbin

I am looking for a bobbin that will hold any size spool. I have some flashy threads that don't fit in my traditional bobbin.

Any ideas?

I seen this mentioned around different chats. I haven't ever used this one but it looks like it might be what you are looking for.

Thanks. Crazy site.

That bobbin looks like it was limited in how wide it can open. That is my problem. I picked up some great threads that are wider than that.

Really appreciate it though!!!

Hey Dj, here's an idea: if the bobbin doesn't fit the spool, then...

use the spools that fit the bobbin: it sounds a little weird, but if you use this stuff a lot, and I go through thread fast when I'm tying a lot, I am so glad I have these:

Yes, they're expensive. They're also awesome. And for the brief period of time it takes me to spool material onto an aluminum spool (goes either in the vise or your electric drill), it's totally worth it. Spring loaded clutch drive allows for about 14" of 'hook to post (bobbin rest) and back' - a.k.a. no more having to wind the spool back on to the bobbin to take up excess thread.

Okay, so it's an idea...

Thanks Gal! A bit out of my budget right now, but I will keep that in mind.

That was plan B. I was still hoping for plan A.
