Many of the problems associated with dropped stitches can be attributed to a perished sponge bar.
Sorry, I do not supply Sponge Bars for Bulky Eight machines, or other machine spares

These flexible sponge bars are now available for purchase at $12.50 each (+ $4.50 per FastPost)
(I can send 2 sponge bars for that freight charge)
For your club or group - Enquire for larger quantities
for both Standard & Bulky machines. (Brother, Singer, Toyota)
I have improved these so they can be inserted or removed from either end of the machine,
even in a confined space. Why pay more???

Not sure how common these are in NZ but I am trying to find a Singer (aka Silver Reed, Studio) mid-gauge machine - i.e. 6.5 - 7mm gauge, I believe the model numbers of possible options are SK160 or LK 150.
In reasonable to good condition - can do some refurbishment but the machine does need to be in working order
