Thread: Detach a Spool Bobbin Issues

  1. #1


    Default Detach a Spool Bobbin Issues

    I just received a "pat applied for" Detach a spool shuttle in the mail from an e-bay win, and I'm wondering how to back-wind it when tatting. The bobbin is not any wider than the shuttle itself, so unless the thread is sticking out, how do I shorten it after a ring and before a chain? Does anyone else have one of these who has solved this problem? Thanks in advance!

    Well...one of my plastic aero bobbins fits the detach-a-spool shuttle with enough overhang that it works just great. Who knew? I doubt I'll ever use the actual bobbin that came with the shuttle again!

    Do you have a photo of the shuttle?

    If you still have the bobbin and are not going to use it, could you let me know? I have several detach a spool shuttles with no bobbin. I will pay postage to ship it to me. Thanks in advance. Sue
