The Singer Self Feeding Bobbin Winder

This machine is thoroughly automatic in its action, and requires no attention except to keep the hopper filled with bobbins. Bobbins of various sizes for Singer and other machines can be placed together in the hopper, the machine feeding and filling them indiscriminately. The machine winds the bobbin, cuts the thread, releases the filled bobbin, which drops into a drawer beneath the machine, and feeds in an empty one, this process being repeated as long as the bobbins and thread are supplied. By the use of this machine a supply of filled bobbins can constantly be kept in readiness for a large number of operatives, and a great saving of time is thereby effected.
