Barbara - would your shuttle be used for rings and bars, or what? I can't imagine how you would prevent the bobbin not being used from unwinding thread.

Barbara and Michel

Please post the photos of your shuttle and your unusual bobbins to our PHOTOS section. Then they will be easier to find in the future.  Paragraph 5 explains how to do that.

merci Michel Bouvot

A clever looking bobbin.  Someone said it can hold 10 yards of thread, that bobbin looks small unless it's for a size above size 80 or so.  Maybe I am looking at it wrong or something...

Nécessite un crochet pour les embobiner.

Si vous avez un problème pour le joindre, je peux retrouver son adresse. Bonne soirée. (ici il est 9 h pm)

merci Miche Bouvot, pour l'info, j'ai écrit un e-mail à ce monsieur pour essayer

Comment by Bouvot Michel et Claudette on August 20, 2016 at 11:50am

OK merci. C'est un tourneur sur bois (qui fabrique des fuseaux) - Le fil est à l'intérieur du fuseau et ne se débobine pas (contrairement aux fuseaux classiques, surtout pour les apprenties. Ces fuseaux sont très pratique aussi pour utiliser des fils métalliques. Moi, j'ai une dentellière aveugle et depuis qu'elle utilise ces fuseaux, je n'ai plus besoin de lui rattacher les fils toutes les 5 minutes ! Pour allonger ou raccourcir le fil, il suffit de faire tourner le bout du fuseau : Génial ! Seul problème : le prix : 5 € le fuseau, mais c'est normal,  il y a un long travail de fabrication (fait main).

vous pouvez expliquer en français, je comprends

Comment by Bouvot Michel et Claudette on August 20, 2016 at 11:18am

It's a French man who make it. but My English is too poor to explain ! His Email :

"Jean Roux"     gevaudent@free.fr  You can say that I gave you his address.

I bought them to work metal threads (very good) and after, I gave them to my blind lace maker and so, the thread stay very well on  (or in) the bobbin.
