Pins and Shuttles

    The Pop-A Bobbin shuttles I have been using come with a pin in it and an extra pin in case you lose one. I got to wondering what would I do if I lost both. Then I looked at the 3D printer. I opened Rhino 3D. I drew a pin. I printed 2. They work! And they only take 10 minutes to make. I just keep finding things to print, and for the most part, they are useful.

Now, can I print a bobbin?


  1. A poor man's solution - eraser ! I cut the long cylindrical pencil eraser to insert into bobbins for my Pony shuttles :-D
    Love how well your pins have fit ! And all the shuttles you have printed - wow.

  2. Great idea and a solution that works. Bravo

  3. hey Tim I would like to try some of your machine made shuttle in black and I could sand them down myself how much would you charge my email is this is Carollyn :)
