TURNING SOLID BOBBINS.
Modern chunky bobbins are usually made in pieces. The benefit is less wood wastage, but problems arise when build up of yarn puts pressure on the ends of the bobbin causing them to wobble or pop off. We experience terrible tangles, and wasted time faffing with Superglue and clamps.
Well this Christmas, my Dad is coming to the rescue by turning 'Solid Bobbins' in Elm.
The only super glue needed is to fill up some little wood worm holes.
