This Bernina 807 bobbinwinder has had it’s chips. It’s the old style bobbinwinder and you can see the rubber wheel is a solid piece. Years of bobbinwinding has worn it down so it no longer reaches the balance wheel, and so won’t spin.

We keep loads of Bernina spares and accessories in stock so we quickly fit a new Bernina bobbinwinder. Now this Bernina owner can wind bobbins to her hearts content.
Take a look at the new style bobbinwinder and you’ll notice the difference. Instead of a solid rubber wheel, the new type has a rubber ‘tyre’. In many years time when it eventually wears out we will only have to replace the tyre and not the whole bobbinwinder unit. Good eh?
