Kenmore 158: Largest Spool Holder, Now With Eye Protection

A tip o’ the cycling helmet to Mike for catching this oversight:

Large spool holder - added bead and guide

Large spool holder – added bead and guide

I’d rounded the end of that steel rod, it stands behind the sewing machine, andĀ blah blah blah. He was right: it needed a bead. That’s a fancy one pilfered from our Larval Engineer’s stash, held in place by a blob of fast-cure epoxy.


The safety pin atop the bobbin on the left spool pin feedsĀ the thread into the machine’s upper thread guide at the proper angle to make it all work; a direct line from the spool holder hook isn’t quite right.
