  Hi All ;

Today I found a new-looking Pfaff 1209 at the Thrift Store  -  
hope it works as good as it looks & sounds !
One hitch  -  I'm pretty sure it came with the incorrect bobbin case -
 it won't latch at all with a  "normal" bobbin  < 12 mm ? >
-  it will latch with a thin bobbin <10 mm ? >    
 but  even with the thinner bobbin  it still binds / rubs enough  
to prevent the bobbin thread from feeding properly.
The Amazon bobbin case  9076  looks almost identical on the outside
but dfferent on the inside to the one that came with the machine ..
I'll visit the sewing machine shop tomorrow to compare.

If anyone is familar with this make / model series  and has any
comments or suggestions  -  I be happy to hear them.
  It's my first Pfaff.

It turns out that the bobbin case was fine,  and  much thanks
 to Emmaline  at the local shop   -

I learned that Pfaff uses a thinner bobbin .
It sews nicely with the proper Pfaff brand bobbin  !
