Shuttle

Household Sewing Machine Perfect Steel Shuttle.

(Text and Picture provided to ISMACS by Dorothy Brumleve)

[The Household] has a perfect steel shuttle, open at one end, allowing the bobbin to be inserted without displacing any of the parts; the bobbin holds more thread than that of any other machine, and runs loose in the shell without spring centres or point bearings, thus ensuring an even tension. The shuttle "is a marvel of simplicity."
