busted bobbin


Dear group
Im amazed to see that there is a group such as this - but what a
wonderful surprise! I was expecting "no matches found" response when
I searched for a 319K bobbin case.
I inherited my lovely 319K from my mother. Up till now its been
working beautifully but last week (while sewing vinyl) I broke a
needle and it seems that the needle has put a nick in the bobbin case
and as a result, the bottom thread is forming masses of loops.
Ive been advised to buy a new machine but I know how good these
machines are.
Does anyone know where I may be able to source a replacement 319K
bobbin case?
Alternatively - is there anything else that can be done to repair the
case? I did see the pictures of the modified bobbin case and perhaps
this is a possibility.
Finally, can anyone recommend someone who might know how to fix this
for me?
I can post the bobbin case anywhere. The machine can be delivered to
locations in Melbourne or Canberra.
Many thanks (in advance) to anyone who can help
Thanks Lisa

Lisa,
Can you post a picture of the bobbin case? I don't know which bobbin case you need, but bobbin cases are usually fairly easily replaced.

Lisa,
You can get a new bobbin case from these people

have no connection with them, but I have found they seem to carry quite a few parts.
You can probably find other places, have you contacted your local sewing machine repair person to see if they can get you the part you need?

Lisa, if you have no luck with any of the other suggestions offered, you could try Roger Smith at the Statewide Sewing Centre in Sydney Rd Coburg in Melbourne. 03 93541936. He's been servicing sewing machines for a long time and has been very helpful with parts for some of my older machines.

The 319K was made in the 50s and was not a popular model compared to teh 15 series, 201, 301, 401, 500/501, etc., and there aren't that many of them around.
Although when looking up the manufacture dates to be accurate, I did find a place in Australia that sells pats to vintage machines and has them for $55:

You could try Sew Simple in Altree Court, Woden, Canberra. They are the only ones I'd trust in Canberra now.

I posted the above before doing a hunt for the following info which might be a better place to start: Diamond Sewing Services P/P 5a/165 Currumburra Rd Ashmore 4214 (Gold Coast Qld) 07 5564 9888
I've used these people in the past for one of my a bobbin case for one of my old Singers and they provided a great postal service. It's been a while since I used them though, so you should check the address before posting anything off to them.
Just did a quick google and they get a lot of hits so they should still be around and active.
