Question about Singer Sewing Machines
Have a friend who has a singer Special edition probably from the 1960s. She needs some bobbins for it. It does wind in the machine rather than on top of it. Can you give us any idea as to the type of bobbin and where we could find it?
Your local Singer dealer should be able to help with this one. There are several good generic bobbins available and i suspect it will need to be metal rather than plastic. Also check the depth of any bobbins so that they fit in the case or the fixed case without being lose or too high. Lower than the bobbin case can work.

SOURCE: Problem with winding thread onto
first you must make sure the winder shaft is turning by moving it to the right a little and see if you can turn it by hand.
If it is turning ok then there is a rubber ring on the other end of the winder shaft and it should come in contact with the drive which turnes it ,if it is worn it might need a new rubber.

I just figured out why my bobbine was winding on shaft instead of on the bobbin. first of all make sure the bobbin is setting up high enough, top of bobbin needs to be a fraction higher then the bobbin shuttle, next check to make sure there are no burrs on the bobbin, then make sure that the thear is catching in the groove (**** in top) of the bobbin. In order to get mine to wind i had to lett the tread go down and then slip the thread in the groove. also remember to leave the pressure foot up do not put it down. let me know if this helps.

More than likely you have a broken vertical shaft gear.
When you turn the handwheel you should see the sewing hook moving under the bobbin case.
If not, take it to a sewing repair person and it should cost somewhere around $100 to repair.
