Lost Spool pin and cap for QuikStitch SP-402

I borrowed the machine from my sister and it is missing the spool pin and cap, but I do have the spool stand. Is there anything else I can use as a spool pin and do I really need the spool cap? If I have to get these exact pieces, does anyone know if and where I can order only these parts? Thanks

Welcome to FixYa. If you have a spool stand, that might work as long as you can thread the machine properly (give it a try!). When the thread is placed on the machine's spool pin, the spool cap keeps the thread in place and helps the thread unwind evenly - so if you are using a spool pin, you really do need a spool cap.

If the spool stand works, you are good to go. If you need to order replacement parts, I've provided a link the manufacturer's website. From there, you can contact customer support and find out if parts are available. If you can't order replacement parts, ask customer service if the machine is compatible with another brand. Another option would be to buy a spool pin and cap at a sewing machine dealer. Take the machine with you and and make sure the parts fit before you buy them.

Here's the link to the site I mentioned:

How do i take the case off my brother xr-65 to replace my spool pin and spool cap


I don't have that particular Brother but I have on that is similar.

Start by taking all of the screws out of the back that you can find (they're in deep holes, so look carefully). Then look at the bobbin area and you'll probably find one more. Finally, take the feet off of the bottom of the machine (not the presser foot, the feet that sit on the table), you'll likely find that there is a screw through the middle of the foot that also holds the case in place.

Best of luck

Do not know how to replace spool pin and spool cap


It looks like it might just snap into place. Of course that means you have to remove the broken bits which may require a drill, small bit and needle nose pliers.

How do you replace the spool pin on a babylock ellure sewing machine


Place the cone of thread on your right, at the back of the machine. Bring the thread up and behind the bobbin winder spindle. (where the bobbin sits) Place the largest spool cap on the empty horizontal spool pin and take the thread through the hole of the spool cap. From this point thread the machine normally. This and many other common questions are found on this link click here http://www.babylock.com/support/FAQ/?FAQ=2 If you have any further questions message me back Thanks Rick

The needle continues to become unthreaded. It seems the tension on the thread from the spool is too tight. However, the tension adjuster dosen't seem to work. Any suggestions? Shelly


Remove the spool and see if the thread got wound around the spindle. Does this machine require a 'splitter disc'? Needle and thread sizes compatible? Could you have missed a step in threading the machine?

How do I thread the machine


Raise the presser foot.

Place the thread spool on the spool pin so the thread feeds from the back of the spool.

Place spool cap against the thread spool.

Take the thread across to the first guide, then down the first slot, back up the next to catch the uptake lever, then down to the needle.

At the top of the needle there should be a metal "hook" that helps hold the thread close to the needle.


I found a download for the manual at this site for $5.00 - http://www.mastersewusa.com/infos_132Q_Featherweight.html
