Customer Question
I have a 50...

I have a 50 yo singer. I need bobbins for it. It was purchased in 1963. I know when looking at them if the bobbin will fit, but can't tell looking online. What size does it take?

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

The plastic bobbin blew apart last night

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

All I need is a new bobbin since I was threading the bobbin which ran out of thread.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Do you want the only number on the machine that I could find?
